    Sorry to hear of Gene’s passing. Met Gene when he was with Bella Co. Worked with him on many projects over the years. One of the best Construction Minds I have ever known. He was a kind, honorable and considerate man. Rest In Peace My Friend, Welcome Home.
    Lord, I pray you grant the Allen family peace and comfort during this time of sorrow and always. In Jesus’s name I pray ….. Amen and Amen

    My condolences to Gene’s family. I had the priviledge of working with Gene for over 40 years, starting when he was with BellaCo and continuing with many years at Allco. Gene was a great guy to work with. As an engineer and he a contractor, we were never cross with each other and if an issue arose, we worked it out. I am sorry I will miss the visitation as I’m out of town. Goodbye dear friend, RIP Gene, I will always remember your good sprits and kind sole.
