Gean during his time as a Crozet Vol Fireman was faithful and dedicated to the community. Always willing to do what ever he could. I will always remember and miss Gean.

Gene and I worked together at Bundoran Farm and I greatly enjoyed his sense of humor, diligence, enthusiasm, and work ethic. It will surprise no one that I will miss him.

The Scott family sends its sympathy to his family.
