My Dad taught me how to love selflessly, sacrificing his life for mom and I, he lives on through me. His legacy continues through my devotion to those I love & in my work. He gave me the gift of love & creativity. He will always be my motivation to fight through struggles, believe in myself, act without fear, smile through pain, dream big and make my dreams come true. Thanks Dad I love you

You are in my prayers.  I will always remember the times I went on vacation with your family to Mendocino.  Gene was a great man and his presence made a room fill with smiles and laughter. God bless you. Love, Moe

Jo & Tracy, It's so hard to write something knowing that My Buds are hurting so bad. I'm still in a fog not believing this is true, but I know that saying ''NO, NO'' doesn't change it.  They'll be a lot of tears but also a lot of happy memories.  I'm so thankful that I've been able to share  times with you, sad ones & happy ones. I loved his wonderful sense of humor.  Love always, Gail

Gene, you taught me truly significant aspects of graceful, abundant humor. I am changed by your high levels of that humor, respect, self-respect, multifaceted generosity, and calm interest in those close to you. I'm also in awe of the collective draw of similarly amazing people in your life, each with his/her own incredible abundance in these fantastic strengths.    Love always, Ian

Our family's memories of Gene are all such happy ones.  He meant so much to our girls as well as to jim and i.  We will never forget all of the trick-or-treating, skiing, dinners out with his probing questions, "what do you think about....?  What a wonderful legacy. Love always

Gene was like a father to me and our extended family. I will never forget the kindness he has shown me over the years and the great, heartfelt conversations we had in Mendocino. If you were lucky enough to have Gene Denham love you, you were blessed because it was felt deeply. I will my Gene physically very much, but GENE is still with us and will always be. Connected through love,Bernard
