July 31, 1926 - July 30, 2012

Passed away peacefully on July 30, 2012 at the age of 86 years. Pre-deceased by his wife, Kaye, Gene will be lovingly remembered by his children: Lynn, Jeff (Keree), Donna (Peter) & Steve (Marina); his grandchildren, Laura, Allison, Brian, Heather, Ashlie (Nelson), Adrienne, Kelly, Lisa, Kathy, Thomas & Matthew; his great grandson Aiden; his sisters Florence & Terry and his brother Syd. Gene was dedicated to his family and his profession. He was a veteran radio broadcaster/producer, primarily at CKWX, and was well known and respected in the broadcasting industry. Gene had a life-long commitment to mentoring broadcasting students and to volunteering in his community. He was an avid story teller with a magnificent "radio voice".
