He loved tinkering with guns taking them apart and putting them back together. Gene was an excellent cook, he was famous for his spaghetti and meatballs that was always a hit at family dinners and get togethers. He was a member of the California national Guard where he was deployed in 1971 for the Watts Riot. Gene also worked and managed the Elk's Lodge #279 for 3 years in Dubuque. He loved to play golf and enjoyed meeting new people and making new friends on the golf course.
