I worked with ”Geno” several years for Morris at Marathon, what a wonderful guy to be around. I will miss the story’s of the past, and the ear to vent to. We had several talks when my dad was killed and he really helped me through some ruff times. Rest In Peace my friend and may the lord comfort your loved ones through this hard time.
