November 2, 1949 – February 19, 2023
Gene was born and raised in Brooklyn NY, the youngest of 14 children. He graduated from Brooklyn Poly Tech in 1970 after majoring in aerospace engineering. He served in the Army National Guard for 6 years, never being activated, thank God.
Gene worked as a draftsman for the City of New York for a while, he had 2 children, Mark & Laurie, with Dorothy. Gene & Sue met at New York Telephone Co & married in 1984. He committed his life to Christ in 1993 and worked the next 13 years to lead Sue to Him. Sue & Gene lived on LI until 2012 when they followed Barb & Gerry to Tucson.
While they loved their life on LI, they really enjoyed their retirement life in Tucson. Before he got sick, Gene liked hiking, right outside his back door & elsewhere, and cruising, especially Alaska. A cruise in Alaska was all the winter they needed! Gene prayed daily for all his family and friends to know Jesus as Lord and Savior so he can be with you all again.
A Celebration of Gene’s life will be held at Marana Mortuary and Cemetery on Tuesday, February 28, 2023. Friends may visit from 10:00 am until service time at 11:00 am. Gene will be laid to rest in the Marana Mortuary and Cemetery following the service.
