    Dad gave me a great foundation of knowledge on how to build and to build right the first time. That was a huge help for me in becoming an architect. I use that knowledge and wisdom he taught me on a daily basis.

    Our sincere sympathy to all those family members at your loss of such a special: Husband, Father, relative, friend … Gene was a nice man, married to a nice lady and has a good family. We mourn with you.
    Gene liked to shop … Gary and I and some of his family members went to the Mesa Market a few years back and Gene loved that adventure … he was a man with many talents … shopping being one of them. Rest in Peace … we’ll see you again one day.

    I moved to Gretna across the road from the Kros family in 1987. One day my husband was outside fixing up a shed when a truck pulled in and an official looking guy marched up to him and asked,
    “Do you have a permit for that?”
    Husband was sputtering some excuse when Gene introduced himself as not an inspector. We knew then we had a neighbor we’d like.

    Gene,and Millie, were such good neighbors that when they moved to Weston we soon followed and took our place across the road again: neighbors once more.

    Gene and Don made our house what it is from the old framework out.

    We are sorely going to miss seeing Gene outside tending to things.

    I will never forget a quote from Gene which I often use. He came over one day and I, in passing, asked how he was. He answered with the typical ” Fine” but then looked around suspiciously and added “as far as I know.”
    That still cracks me up.

    He is unforgettable.
