Gene Riser fought a valiant fight. Today he is well and reunited with his dad and brother. Gene was our friend who was always greeting us with a firm handshake or a kiss. I think of his work in the deer industry and how he would collect my sons football team to come work the deer all night long. How much they learned and how much fun they had. Gene was a true reflector - he thought things through and philosophized on life. When he married Vicki, I often heard him say how blessed he was and in his blessing so are we all blessed. Well done Gene. We will remember you and reflect on the good you have done. Love you and your family.
