Gene was a member of the Armed Forces, where he proudly served his country in The United States Airforce.

A member of the Carpenters Union of Southern California, an active member till his retirement.

Gene was an avid NASCAR fan, and would enjoy many an afternoon watching the races, Mark Martin and Jimmy Johnson, being his favorite drivers. If the races were not on, a John Wayne or World War II movie was a must, and could watch PT Boat 109 or Tora tora tora everyday.

Gene was a huge Dodgers and Rams fan, and like most sports fans, he lived and died with them each season. He also loved going to the casinos he told everyone he knew how much he loved it, and if you asked him how he did, his answer was always the same, “eh, you win some, you lose some, but I had a great time”.

Gene loved to tell the stories of his youth, his time in the service as a cook and getting airtime in the planes. Building Hot Rods and race cars was a dear passion for him. He also loved building model airplanes. He was a Quiet man of faith and prayer. A devout Catholic . He enjoyed smoking and sitting outside with the two family dogs, Bella and Mr. Petey.

Gene will be terribly missed, by all who loved him.

Services will be private, due to COVID-19.
