Gene led a long and engaging life with an incredibly dedicated and loving wife.

Gene is survived by his children; Debra Ruedrich Jerry (Melinda) Sweeten and Sandy (Mike) Fike ten grandchildren; and seven great grandchildren.

Gene is preceded in death by his parents; wife, Marjorie Sweeten; and sister, Kathrine Jacoby.
