He was born on October 12, 1941 in St. Louis, Missouri and subsequently lived in several locations in the Chicago suburbs, eventually settling in Bolingbrook for over 31 years. His first big move was in 1962 when he joined the United States Marine Corps and served as a Loadmaster from 1962-1966, seeing action during the Vietnam War. He later served in the United States Air Force Reserve as a Loadmaster. He also achieved a Master Mason designation during his 32-year membership with the Freemasons. Gene’s love of machinery began as a small boy visiting his grandparents’ farm in rural Nebraska and led him to the military and then his civilian career of 31 years in the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150 as a heavy equipment operator. His other passions included motorcycles, golf, amateur ham radio, playing flight simulators on his computer, Chicago Blackhawks and Chicago Blackhawks Special Hockey, and Rockford IceHogs.
