In Memory

Gene Ketner

Our fellow classmate Gene Roy Ketner died July 4, 2008 in Commerce.  He was born March 3, 1970 in Commerce, TX to Freddie Joe and Peggy Sue Sands Ketner.

Gene liked working with his hands, enjoyed working on cars and being outdoors, cooking and fishing.  He enjoyed going to the car races and just hanging out, especially with family and loved ones.  He loved to draw and was a perfectionist, especially when it came to working on his trucks.  He lived life to the fullest.  Gene would do anything to help others, all they had to do was ask.

Gene was a real cowboy at heart and always had a smile on his face.  He could light up the room.  He will be missed.
