Gene worked in construction most of his life, retiring from Carpenters Local Union 500 in 1991. He was a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps
, having served in Italy during the Korean War
As a younger man, he was a proficient roller skater and avid bowler and softball player in local leagues. He was a former member of the Moose Lodge of Butler. In his later years, he enjoyed woodworking, home improvement projects and Pittsburgh sports, but most of all he relished any opportunity to dote on his family.
