Old sheriffs never die...they just fade away.
Welcome To Gene
Welcome to my Web site!
My good friend and Memphis artist, John Helms, made this
website for my 88th birthday. Although I am still very much alive, the
purpose of it is to make a record of my life for my friends and relatives or
anyone else who is interested in my years of military service, my public service to the city of
Memphis, Tennessee and my personal involvement with Elvis and DR. Martin
Luther King, Jr.
I've been wanting to write a book for a few years now, but
couldn't quite make the financial commitment to it even though I found an
excellent "ghostwriter" through my friend John, so this is the next
best thing, for now. This web site is a short summary of my life since I was
a child growing up in the Great Depression up to my years of Sheriff of
Shelby County, Tennessee. I hope you enjoy reading it and thank you for your
