My son started at Wal-Mart just out of high school. He talked of him fondly. He really made a impression on my son, for which I am grateful. Rest in peace

Our sympathies to family, the older I get the more I treasure the ones who taught me, Geno was one of those I dearly remember and am fond of.

My buddy Geno! We had many laughs together at the Legion. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Always a kind word and a smile for everyone he met.

Prayers for the family as you say good bye. Geno was a friendly neat guy. I knew him from Wal Mart too and it was always nice to see him! Molly Korthals

I worked with Geno at Walmart and I remember him insisting to walk me out to my car at night after work. He was a sweet man and will be dearly missed! My heart and prayers are with you♡
