Raise a margarita in memory of our friend Gene L
Posted by: Dennis R
Date: December 19, 2020 06:11PM
I followed up in our search for Gene L. and received the sad news today:
Hi Dennis, yes, I’m sorry to tell you Gene passed away on July 11, 2020 after complications from his renal failure. I do not think his son, Adam, had an obituary done.
So please raise a margarita to toast our friend Gene and remember him in your own special way. He loved the forum and always was trying to get to meet us in person. Rest in Peace my friend. May we finally meet one day.

RIP Gene L. his posts on the forum, whether good or bad, always managed to bring pleasant old school SoCal memories to me.



Apologies to the anonymous forum member affected by my previous sig pic. It was my personal pic of a country expressing great grief as their leader, one of the most recognized people in the world, lay on his deathbed 8 years ago, days before he died. Like a naif, I did not realize it was offensively political, I considered it an expression of deep emotion and a reminder of the mortal coil's nature; that we all, great and small, can only hope to make a difference in our short time here, no matter the personal cost.

I'll post another pic from my work in South Africa that is, hopefully, apolitical.

He sure had a hard time of it in the end. Take care Gene - it's a little cold for a margarita just now, but I'll be sure to give you a toast this summer.

Sad to hear.

I too always hoped to join him for a margarita, and I too wanted to help out but felt powerless.

Thank you very much for following up and letting us know.

So sorry to hear of this. He was one of the highlights of our funny little forum social group. His presence made the world a better place and the world will be somewhat the worse due to his passing. I am thankful that we can all celebrate the memory of the good thoughts that he brought to us all.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

His Facebook page has been converted into a Legacy Page. Maybe one of the MRFers who were close to him might care to put up a short memorial post on behalf of the group with condolences and letting others know he will be missed here as well?

If so, please include me as a ‘signatory’ sending regards. I notice his FB friends include what at least appears to be one or two if his grandchildren, so perhaps he was not entirely estranged from his family. They might appreciate a peek into his larger world and knowing he was much appreciated by others.
