Gene was a family man; faithful and steady, easy-going, quick with puns and subtle humor. He was always busy around the farm and house, finding creative ways to make things work. Intrests were genealogy, reading, gardening, animals, travel, and music.

He was a long time member of Living Word Church, New Wilmington, PA, a founding member of Cornerstone Community Church of New Castle, and most recently a member of Central Assembly of God in Houston, PA. He sang in the Bach Choir of Grove City, PA and ACTS Community Choir of Slippery Rock and Butler.
