Gene Sather, 57, passed away December 8, 2012. He was born in Minnesota and followed in his father's trade of road construction.
His first marriage blessed him with three daughters, Angela, Carmen and Christine. He later moved to San Diego where he met his current wife, Sandy. They both liked to dance and their love grew. They danced through life for the last 20 plus years. Sandy has two children, Bob and Shannon, and they united their families. Over the years, they were again blessed with 11 grandchildren. He treasured the time he spent with them and friends on the Ranch.
Gene was a hard working, straightforward yet simple man. He didn't try to impress anyone. Gene was just Gene, take him as he is. He was a deep-hearted Christian, talked to everyone, loved his family and friends with all of his heart and would go out of his way to make sure we were taken care of. If you asked, and he could, it was done.
His funeral and burial were in Ulen, MN, on December 17, 2012. He is next to his parents in the small town in which he grew up.
A Celebration of Life is planned for January 19, 2013, at the Ranch.
God took him earlier than we would like, but He alone knows why. We will truly miss him and always love him.
