The first time I heard of Gene was during the Bench America contests. I had never seen or heard of him 'till then, but he stood out with his shades and mohawk, looked like a jacked biker! He eventually became the first to bench a grand and also the first to lift a grand in both the squat and bench.. He made his mark on the powerlifitng world and did it with out question, his lifts were that solid! He started the RPS and held it to a high standard and to that we say thank you and he will be missed by us all.
