One Comment on “Eugene (Gene) L. Highness”

  1. Royal Krueger Says:

    I will miss seeing Gene on the car show scene. His car was always a hit, but so was his genuine smile and personality. The first time I met him, I joked and told him our names went together perfectly. He asked what was my name, so I told him it was Royal. We laughed about me wanting to be Royal Highness. The Shawnee Car Show will miss him and his ’32. Sending prayers to all who loved and knew him.
