Gene Ward will be greatly missed by many! He was like a father to me and the big brother that I never had, He was My Best Friend! He was my Head Coach in slow pitch softball for many years. He got 10 of my friends together and made a team that lasted for many, many years. I will never forget him taking me and my brother Donnie and his son Doug to Tennessee Football Games and Tennessee Basketball Games. I LOVE YOU GENE WARD and Miss You.
