Gene is survived by his wife of 64 Years, Marg; children, Michelle (Douglas), Denise (Doug), Nicole (Jim), and Jon; grandchildren, Leanne (Travis), Mark, and Kathleen; great-grandchildren, Logan, and Zachary; and brother Al. He is predeceased by his siblings, John and Joan. Gene took great joy from his family.
After humble beginnings, Gene had a 38-year career at Edmonton Telephones. He retired early to backpack through over 40 countries and to pursue his interests in pottery, orienteering, trekking, and skiing.
Thanks to Denise and Nicole and their families for their loving home care in his final months. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
