Gene lived his life to the fullest. He loved to travel, fish, dance, joke, camp, play cards and spend his time with all his family and friends. Gene was also very active in all sports throughout his life, baseball with AGT, playing pool from a very young age and golf where he excelled as a lefty with a big drive. Gene’s main love of sports had to be curling. You could find him playing in a rink from a teen till he could no longer kneel in the hack. Gene had worked at AGT, Prudential, Raychem and Syncrude over the years. While with AGT he worked on a project in Jamaica for 1 ½ years helping rebuild their telephone system. He was always active in his community volunteering and involved in various projects.
Forever Remembered and Forever Missed.
