After moving off of the family farm, Gene had been a mechanic for many years.  Later, he was employed at MPTC as a maintenance supervisor for over 20 years.  Gene had been a faithful member of Peace Lutheran Church in Beaver Dam.  He enjoyed deer hunting, ice fishing, and puzzles.  He was very proud of his Finnish heritage.  Gene loved attending antique power tractor shows with his son and grandsons.  Gene especially enjoyed supporting his grandsons in their school activities.  He will be greatly missed.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his son Michael, his brother Elton, brothers-in-law: Clifford Mattson and Jerry Peepo and two nephews: Jerry and Russ Peepo.
