Gene was born on February 3, 1937 in Saskatoon, and as a child grew up in Ardith, SK. He spent many years truck driving. He owned Choiceland Transport and later owned the Big K Car Wash. He was a skilled carpenter and excelled in wood working. His pride and joy were his truck, garden and lawn. He had a good sense of humour - a lot of people had nicknames Dad invented. He shared many adventurous stories from his single years. He was noted for his one liners. He will be missed very much.
