Gene Brinkley, Quinn House Director Passes

Wednesday March 14, 2018 - Gene Brinkley, Director of The Quinn House passed away this morning after a long illness. Gene had been with the Quinn House over 25 years and assumed the Directors position after the passing of the ministry founder Carrol Quinn. During his tenure as Director, he led scores of people to the Lord and assisted hundreds of men and women in their fight against drug and alcohol abuse. Gene’s vision was responsible for much of the growth of the Quinn House and its many outreach programs that affected many families throughout Gwinnett County and Northeast Georgia. Gene was active in several community organizations and loved being on the golf course. Gene is survived by his wife Jane of Lawrenceville and sisters Brooke Albright of Florida and Kim Rodriquez, of Texas and many Nieces and Nephews. Gene will be greatly missed by his friends, the staff members of the Quinn House, and former guests.

Webster defines “choice” as the act of selecting; the power of choosing or that you have options. We can’t deny that alcohol and drugs affect the mind, body, and spirit.  Once addicted you must address all three.

Sometimes in the daily challenges that life gives us, we miss what is really important. We may fail to say hello, please, or thank you, congratulate someone on something wonderful that has happened to them, give a compliment, or just do something nice for no reason.
