As a longtime close friend of my Dad, Gene was a strong presence in our household as I grew up. He had kind of a "coach" personality, enthusiastic and encouraging, yet tough and demanding with high standards. He made a positive impact on my life, and I'm a better man for having known him.

Always remembered him as a giving, energetic, humorous presence in my family's life and to me personally. He was my Godfather and I love him to this day

One of the kindest, most gentle persons to ever grace the earth. His words of wisdom will always be remembered and all his wonderful personality has made a profound impact in my life life. I can only hope to be half the man Grandpa Leahy was.

Grampa was my hero. His spirit will live on in the hearts of everyone he loved. I will always think of him every time I hear the roar of a racecar.
