Gene was most known to be the strong silent type, but when he spoke, he spoke volumes. He worked hard for many years in construction and as a heavy equipment operator. He was the “King of Big Boy Toys.” He truly loved his work and being able to provide for his family. When he wasn’t hard at work, you could find him tinkering around the house, at a cabin on lake, fishing, taking pictures of the family or even taking his grandchildren out for ice cream.  He will always be a known to the family as our hero.
