Gene served in the United States Air Force for twenty years, where he achieved the ranking of Master Sargent. He was a proud veteran and patriot and a member of the Freemasons. Upon retirement from the military, he worked as the service manager for Frymaster Corporations for nineteen years. Throughout his life, Gene had many hobbies. He loved to play guitar and sing with friends, throw big barbecue parties in the backyard, and ride horses both competitively and as a pastime. He enjoyed gardening and sharing the fruits of his hard work with others. He was a hunter and fisherman, and he even tried his hand at beekeeping and raising quail and rabbits. Gene was the kind of man who knew how to make you laugh and loved to bring people in and make them feel welcome in his home. He would give you anything he had and make sure you left with your belly full. When you met Gene, you knew that you had made a lifelong friend.

Memorials may be made to Shriner’s Hospital for Children , St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital , and the Wounded Warriors Project. The family would like to extend a special thanks to Dr. Raghu Nathan, Mrs. Carolyn, and the rest of the staff of Willis Knighton Bossier. The family would also like to thank Amedisys Hospice for their care.
