Gene was in Central School, in the same English class I was (at first): Mr. Elliott's class. Mr. Elliott was great. And he was ever so nice. I was transferred by him into Miss Lemon's class. Oh, she was cute. But back to Gene, I wish I had known him better. I feel that way about many of our fellow students.

Gene enjoyed boating and was a member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary flotilla in Medford, NJ. He served as office manager of the Sort Run Bindery. He and his wife, Betsy Blisard Litz, had two daughters.

As I recall, I became a friend of Gene Litz in seventh grade when we were both assigned to Mr. Elliott's homeroom, 7-6.  Gene sat in front of me since things were set up alphabetically. I remember Gene being big into cars, and I think I absorbed automotive details from him through osmosis. Gene missed a fair amount of school that year because of the great lawmmover accident which separated him from some of his toes. When we got to high school, Gene got involved with taking game day football films on a battered 16 millimeter movie camera. He eventually invited me to tag along. Gene was a much better cameraman than I ever was. Of course my fear of heights didn't help. I do remember that Coach Spicer was very unpleasaed if the photographic work was not up to snuff, especially when we took single frame pictures of the cheerleaders. Because of the alphabetical arrangement of homerooms, I always had some connection with Gene through our time at HMHS, but I lost touch with Gene as we moved out into the world.
