Song is called: We lost another one
Seems you made a friend of every stranger you met. Now you get to ride with all of us.
The service is tonight. J COLLINS FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION SERVICE - Mobile Edition
Thanks!I went to Gene McCall's funeral visitation this evening. It was from 6:00-8:00 pm in Villa Rica, Georgia. It was about a 50 mile ride on the CX500. I had the opportunity to meet his family and view a slideshow depicting what a great guy he was. Grandchildren were a huge part of his life. The kids were always smiling in his presence. His daughter Melissa and I spoke for quite a while. She was noGene's daughter Melissa expressed that she would love to have the folks here share any pictures of her Dad that may be available with her. She asked that I post her email address and phone number here on the forum so that she may get the pictures and perhaps a story or two. Since phone numbers shouldn't really be posted on forums, I will be happy to share the number and email address with anyone who PM's me.
As was previously posted, there is going to be a memorial service in Murfreesboro, TN on July 11th. The time has not been nailed down, but is said to likely be around 11:00 am. More details will be coming.
Ride safe everyone.....
Gene kept going as fast as his health would allow. That was how he enjoyed life.It looks like he wasn't slowing down any and enjoying life, a good reminder for all of us, never met him but am impressed by the long list of friends.
I believe you are correct Ray. It was the 2000 Honda hoot occasion. You guys were camped at a campground that had been sold out before the next season started. Its the year when Chopper Charles ate that huge roast in a hamburger bun. and Dick was walking without crutches. We were still on the Swedish board then and the HTTA was starting to form in Dan Topping, Lea Harder, Tony G.,and a few other minds, Mine included. The good ole days.I met Gene so many years ago -- maybe about 15 years, I think. Even though my interactions with him were brief, I fondly remember his kind spirit. My prayers go out to him and to his family.
