Gene received his B.A. from Mount Union College in 1956, M.Ed. and M.A. from Kent State University in 1959 and 1960, and Ph.D. from the University of Toledo in 1968. He was a member of Phi Delta Kappa and Phi Beta Kappa. He began his career of educational service as an 8th grade teacher and coach at Louisville Local Schools in 1957. He eventually was hired at the University of Dayton in 1968 where he taught as an active tenured professor until the time of his death. Gene chaired the Department of Counselor Education and Human Services from 1972 to 1997. Among his many honors was recognition as UD's 1982 Professor of the Year.
