In lieu of flowers
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??
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
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!!!
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.

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
My heart goes out to you during your deep sorrow. Words are useless during times like this. I love you all and will be praying for you as you greave Gene.
