I met Gene and his lovely wife at the Rochester Pinball Show way back. I brought my previous Big Bang Bar machine (#34) at the time to be used in the tournament (and so that others could have a chance to play it).
His words to me before knowing it was my game was, “Who the hell would bring their game to a show? Are they nuts”??
I raised my hand and said, “Me!” Then I asked him to sign my translite. Haha!!!!
He was very nice to me and kind.
RIP Gene and condolences to the family.
