Condolences for Chief Gene Springer

Glen Allison posted on 4/6/20

Chief Gene Springer, I worked for you for 13+ years and never in my 47 years of law enforcement did I ever work for a man I respected and loved more than you. It was my pleasure to serve under you as a patrolman, Sgt. and as Captain of the Saginaw Police Dept. Knowing your family and working with Delores at the Tarrant County Sheriff Dept. was another pleasure. So sorry to just now learn of your passing. No doubt you are a special angel in heaven. Thanks for all you and I shared between us. I’ve never had a better friend. I love you Chief

What a caring, kind Gentleman we have all just loss. I had the honor of working with him while serving on the City Council. He never met a stranger and always took time out of his day to talk. His kindness will be missed. No doubt he is in a much better place.

So many fond memories of this wonderful man. I’ve known him since childhood, watched him mentor my father, my brother and myself. His love and dedication to his city, friends and family is nothing less than admirable. I’m blessed to have known him. Rest In Peace, Chief. Fly high with dad and the angels!

Words cannot describe what a wonderful kind generous and special man He was. He was a true friend to so many. I was honored to have him as a friend. When I first met him years ago it was as if I knew him my entire life. There was nothing he wouldn’t do for you. He truly never met a stranger. He was known far and wide as a good and decent man. The first man I ever knew that no one ever had across word to say about him. He had a genuine love for people. It didn’t matter whether you were rich or poor, Whether you wore white collar, a blue collar, Or no caller. He treated everyone the same. You were all equal To Chief Gene Springer. Just say I’m going to miss him he’s an understatement. He was so loved by everyone. He was a father figure to some, A brother to many,and a friend to all. In all my years of life I never met a man like him. A heart as big as Texas. We all lost someone so special. There will never be another like him .There is no doubt in my mind he is in heaven. When he left this world a big piece of me went with him. God bless him. Prayers For his family

Gene married my Momma when I was 17. He never showed favoritism to any of his kids, when asked all four of us were his. He was fair and always tried to help out all the Boswell and Saginaw students. He was respected and loved by many. Gene go fly high on that mountain and hug my Momma for me. See ya later and I will always love and respect you.
