Gene had a special friend, Mrs. Rose Jones who on July 17, 1991 became his guardian advocate. They had a very special bond and would often go on outings together such as; taking trolley rides around Amelia Island as well as rides in her car. Mrs. Jones was very active in Gene’s life and the only family known to him.
Gene loved maneuvering his wheelchair about his home backwards inspecting his surroundings. He would make sounds as his way of communication and through those sounds, he has been heard saying the word “Outside”. Gene attended the Independent Achievement Center which is a day program located on Hendricks Road in Fernandina Beach; Florida where he received skilled training.
Gene’s beautiful life will forever be cherished through his peers and staff of Care Centers of Nassau. He leaves to mourn his passing, Mrs. Rose Jones a loving and dedicated guardian advocate.
