In memory of Arthur Eugene "Gene" Whillock.

Husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, friend, and Cardinal fan.
|This is how he looked around the time he met David's grandma. Peggy remembers that little curl on his forehead. She found it pretty irresistible.|
|Our favorite picture of David's grandparents. His grandpa is such a flirt.|
|At their wedding. David's grandma embarrassed both of us yesterday by telling us that his grandpa was a "perfect gentleman" before their wedding. Unlike some of her other boyfriends who "just wanted to make out"!|
|David, his grandpa, his aunt Lana, and his grandpa's sideburns. Those sideburns can practically stand alone. I love David's little overalls. And his blonde hair!|
|Family photo, sometime in the early '80s. I love David's sassy hand on the hip, and his cowboy boots. He was so proud to be dressed just like Grandpa. The sideburns are still rocking.|
|David and two people who think the sun rises and sets in him. We love the pocket protector, too.|
|My miniature golf buddy.|
|Hanging out on the back porch after working in the yard. Little Mac claimed her own chair (typical).|
|Breaking the rules at Grandma's house--no dogs EVER allowed on the furniture! Sometimes Gramps makes his own rules.|
|53 years of marriage, sparks still flying.|
|Last year, David gave his grandpa a personalized bat from the Louisville Slugger factory. No grandson could have been prouder of his grandpa, and no grandpa could have been prouder of his grandson.|
|Two Cardinal fans, heading to another game.|
