Mom, Paula and I are so sad to hear of Genes passing. We are so glad we have gotten to reconnect the past few years. Your family was so very important to my dad. Love you all so much.

My condolences to Gene's family.   Gene and I were classmates at DeSoto Schools.   J. C. Culwell, our math teacher seated us last name alphabetically.  I was Betty Gillam, therefore Ray Greenlee and Gene Groat were my math seat mates.  Between the two of them I managed to pass Math and Algebra.  Thank you BOYS.

So sorry to hear of Genes passing.  He and his family made a difference.

How many of us can say that??

Dearest Tryna,
Our thoughts were Farewell Gene , we were immediately moved to “NO,” save us a seat Gene.
We love you and are praying for you.

Love in Christ,
Bob and Cheryl
Our thoughts and prayers are with Tucker and the entire family. Our deepest condolences--your friends at Scott Lee Guttering.


I’m so sorry to hear about Genes passing.  Sorry I couldn’t make it to the services.  He was a very special person and mentor in my life.  I owe him a lot when it comes to my faith and also to my profession in the surveying field.  My heart goes out to you and all the family.  Love you and God Bless!!!

Thankful for the Godly legacy of Uncle Gene! What a General in the Faith!
My life has been so blessed for knowing the Groat Family. I am so glad that God sent you to my little corner of the world. I will miss Gene so much and look forward to seeing him again in heaven. Your family's devotion to God has been such a blessing to so many people.
Love you all.

Judson and I didn’t get to know Gene very long but the few months we recently shared with him will always be special to us. He was a very special man and quickly became a forever friend as well as his precious wife, Tryna. We were blessed to touch hearts with him and know we will see him again one day! Prayers and sympathy to Tryna and the entire family. He will be missed.

I was honored to work with Gene in the field. He taught me a lot. It was a joy to be his instrument man. I remember working on a big survey. We traversed around 3/4th of it, but didn’t have a sure directions to close it out. He showed me how to calculate coordinates around the job. Then how to calculate back to the beginning. I turned the angle and traverse a 1/4 mile to the beginning and closed it out. I appreciated his patience with me. I will miss him but what I know of him, he’s happy to be home with the father. He will always watch over. I will miss him, but I am a better person knowing him. My love goes out to all of you. God bless

Pork chop and rice casserole, sheet pan pizza, playing Rook and Coup Fourret, listening to gospel records, making caramel apples in the Fall, listening in amazement as Taryn played the piano, SO many memories of my youth wrapped up in this family. When ‘He Touched Me’ was first popular, Gene sitting at the kitchen table working on something with a tool that pinched him, him breaking into song 🎶 “It pinched me, ohh it pinched me” 🎶. All of these and more come flooding back as I absorb the news that the ‘E’ in the TEG’s is physically gone from us. I understand the pain, but also the joy of knowing your dad entered his heavenly home singing, and was greeted by his Savior and many friends and loved ones who preceded him. What a joyous reunion. I found myself wondering about any conversation he might have been having with The Father as he lay unconscious. Regardless, his testimony and his legacy are epic, and I will miss knowing he is physically here on this earth. My life is better for having had Gene Groat and his family in my life. God bless you as you navigate the difficult days ahead. I love you all❣️
So sorry for your loss Tana. Lifting you all up in prayer. Love you
A wonderful man and friend. A brother in Christ who I will miss dearly. Thankful the Lord has blessed our church in South Florida with Gene and Tryna through friendship, encouragement and ministry. My prayers are for the family.
Tryna and family,
In the few short years we have had to know you and Gene he always held a special place in our hearts and lives. All the enjoyable times we shared with you and Gene were special. In looking at all the photos we have which include the two fo you they all have their special memories.

Sharing in Christian service with the two of you was always rewarding.
When you moved into our community, church and lives we were all enriched for it.

We will miss the Gene greatly but we know he is with the Lord and we will see him soon. May God comfort you and your family.

Clayton and Ann
