  1. I knew Gene for over 40 years in the fastener industry. Although our relationship was business oriented, Gene was always honest, polite, professional, and thoughtful to all his customers. He will be missed I am sure by all. May God be with his wife Betty, and all the rest of his family.

  2. I always enjoyed talking to Gene over the years. He was from the old school of business where relationships with customers matter. I always looked forward to picking up from Fastool so I could talk with Gene. You will be missed my friend. Prayers with Betty & the whole Pitcher family.

  3. David,Betty ,and the entire Pitcher family,
    All of us at Sutton Construction Specialty were saddened to hear of the loss of Gene. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We always enjoyed doing business with Gene knowing that that he was a man of his word and treated everyone like they were his best friend.

  4. My deep sympathy. May you find comfort through God’s Word, may it strenghten your faith through the promises
    he have for all of us Isaiah 25:8 and Revelation 21:4
