Gene was a dairy farmer in Wisconsin. He worked at Prairie Farms as a field manager. Then he bought a farm in Tremont and started dairy farming again. He finally retired in 2015, not one to sit still, he started working for Hot Shots in Peoria delivering nuclear medicine to hospitals. He enjoyed having co workers to discuss many topics with and to share his farming knowledge with. With winter gone he was looking forward to our fair weather neighbors stopping to chat as he rode his four wheeler up the road. He enjoyed crossword puzzles, reading, making cinnamon rolls, lasagna, and cheesecake. Every spring after retiring he picked strawberries in Illinois and Wisconsin and made jam.
