Gene graduated from Purdue University in 1955, where he received his BS in Aeronautical Engineering. He pursued his passion for planes, trains, boats and automobiles while working with both Curtiss-Wright and John Deere companies.

Gene was sweet, generous and compassionate to all, and happiest while enjoying ice cream in front of a roaring fire.
