Grandfather of Joe, Sophie, Max, Kelly, Samantha, Dan, Katie, Tyler, and Jill who flew in from all over the US to say final good-byes.

He loved the arts and entertainment world, from Shakespeare to the movies of the golden era and regularly appeared at his grandkids birthdays in full costume as a famous pirate, wizard, or other character. Gene was also an avid historian, especially of the American Civil War. He often regaled his family and friends with tales of that storied time in the American past.

We will always carry your memory in our hearts.

ONLINE CONDOLENCES BELOW:

Uncle Geno is someone I truly deeply loved. He was not only my Godfather and gave me my middle name, but my last true link to my own father, his uncle, who Gene truly loved. His laugh, his smile, his cigar, his hug and kiss, his stories of the family from the South End days cannot be replaced. I feel his loss in my heart and soul. He is part of who I am. I will keep his love and spirit with me forever. Joseph Eugene Raffol.
Gino and I would talk for hours about the Civil War and some of the great battles from that period. Having a cigar with Gino is something I will miss. My prayers are with his family. Jeff Pearlman
Uncle Gene, Your were a good Uncle to me and my brothers Brian & Paul, and especially Stephanie, as you always had a special place in your heart for her. We'll always remember the wonderful food and dancing at the Syrian picnics & fun times at Long Beach. I especially remember watching the Red Sox on TV with you and Randy at the Clearview Cottage, smoking your signature stogie. In later years you were a fixture with Harry our Dad at Paul's house every Sunday. Heaven won't be the same now that you're with him! "God Bless You Kid"! Your Nephew, Steve
