He was an avid Nascar fan and enjoyed watching the races each weekend. He enjoyed spending time at the lake with his family and friends over the years. Gene always looked forward to cooking the susies for the fish fry's at the lake, where he enjoyed fishing and being with his lake buddies. He also enjoyed working on anything in the garage and took pride in keeping his yard neatly mowed and spending as much time outside as he could. Another favorite of Gene's was eating about anything anyone would cook for him. He was a big on having snacks and enjoying a cold glass of iced tea. Gene will be sadly missed by his family and many friends in Butler and at the lake.
