Gene Kinne Memorial Fund

It is with my deepest sorrow that I must share this update. Gene Kinne went to the loving arms of our Lord at 11:30pm 11/23/17. He passed peacefully and surrounded by his family.  We are raising money for Gene`s family to help support financially and with funeral expenses..... Just a few weeks ago Gene underwent hip replacement surgery. During the recovery process it was discovered that Gene had advanced cancer. It was in his abdomen, back, shoulders and intestines. As you can imagine he was in extraordinary pain. He had a feeding tube inserted this week as he could no longer swallow sufficiently to provide his body with the proper nutrients. 

This was news that no one in the family could have imagined as Gene has always been a strong, loving and hardworking man. 
His wife provided his care with love and devotion, but she needs help. The family is in need of financial help. Gene has always worked hard and provided for his family. He worked 31 years for Giant Markets and 8 years with Weis Markets where he currently works. He also currently worked as a Valet driver at Lourdes hospital where he would provide caring and compassionate assistance to patients coming to the hospital. 
Gene was a very loving and giving person and we send our love and prayers to his wife and soul mate Paula, his children and his grandchildren, Larry and Carter who he loves so much. Any donation, no matter how small, will go to help Gene and his family will medical, funeral and living expenses. If you cannot donate, spreading the word and prayers are greatly appreciated.
