  1. I graduated With Gene. Jacksboro High School 1959. I remember his old pick-up truck and he would give a hand to anyone who needed help. I recall Gene saw a fellow with a flat tire and he stopped and changed that man’s tire. Turned out that Man was a Newspaper Writer and he wrote an article about This Fine Young Man, Gene Evans, that stopped and changed The Tire.
    Gene will be missed. SORRY for OUR loss. Edwin Taylor

  2. I graduated with Gene in 1959. I saw him a few years ago when he came to my mother’s house on a plumbing issue and he sure hadn’t changed much. He was concerned and helpful like I always remember him. RIP in peace, Gene. My condolences to his family.
