Coach Genin was one of, if not the best, High School teacher I ever had. He was very firm, yet we all looked forward to his class. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Please accept my deepest sympathies in your loss. I hold you close in my heart and prayers. Most sincerely, Barbara White
