Dear Edie, Doug, Kit, Adam and Jackie, I’m thinking of you all during this time. I have many fond memories of our childhood being up at the farm, flying down the old highway on a dirt bike or collecting sap on your properties. Gene was always around for a good laugh, may he rest in peace. Sincerely, Byron McNabb

Dear Aunt Eadie, Doug, Kit and family,
Recalling so many memories of the times and special events that we shared together especially during our younger years. Your dad and husband, our Uncle Gene always held an unmistakable presence during these times. Family reunions, helping with the haying and harvest, chats along the Spence or McKellar road when we’d often meet as Uncle Gene and Aunt Eadie were either going to or coming from “the farm”. Uncle Gene will always be present in my childhood and younger years’ memories.

-Dan Pletzer & Robyn Jeffery

Though I had not seen Gene in many many year hearing of his passing brings sadness to my heart. I use to work at Fincham's Gas Bar and it was always a laugh and a smile when Gene would come in to give me a hard time!! He always came in with a joke and a story. He had many years on this earth but I promise you he will remain a memory in hearts of many for years to come. I hope you are causing someone grief up stair Gene!!! Thank you for the many laughs and for always bringing a smile to my face. Condolences to the entire Pawlech family. Emily
