He was born on November 3, 1918 in London, Ontario, Canada, graduated from the University of Western Ontario, obtained a Master's degree from the University of Toronto and completed his doctoral studies in organic chemistry at Northwestern University near Chicago. In 1949 he began what became a 36 year career with the Atlantic Refining Company (later ARCO) in their high pressure research laboratory adjacent to the refinery in South Philadelphia. Gene's work, primarily in catalytic cracking methodology, resulted in his being named on half a dozen US and numerous foreign patents. A resident of Newtown Square since 1953, Gene was an active member of St. Alban's Episcopal Church where he served on the vestry, on the altar guild and as an usher. Eugene also served as an assistant scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts and for ten years was a member of Newtown Township's Zoning Board. He also volunteered for many years at the Owl Bookshop, a fundraising outlet for a Bryn Mawr College scholarship fund. Gene was an avid bowler, playing in two leagues until retiring at age 92. He also was a faithful Red Cross blood donor until his early 90s.
Gene was predeceased by his first wife of 48 years, Beatrice (nee Godson), and his second wife of 19 years, Virginia (nee Lincke).
Survivors: by children Gregory Aristoff (Rosita), Paul Aristoff (Sharon) and Liza Holzinger (Jim); step-children Douglass Miller (Jan), Neil Miller (Lynn), Jim Miller (Kathy), Jack Miller, Sharon Munro (Jim) and a number of grandchildren and great grandchildren.
