Gene is survived by his daughter Kim (Dave) Finke, son Shane (Nada) Swing, son David Swing, son Jeff (Kathi) Swing, and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren: Brian, Nikki (Matt), Broden, Morgan, Andi; Sara, Ethan, Christina, Chris, Chase; Kasey, Chris (Dani), Chance, Carter, and Kayla. He also leaves behind his dearest friends, George and Mary Bultman along with many more friends…too many to mention.
Gene had a zest for life. He enjoyed his motorcycles, ultralight airplane, riding his bicycle, and especially his work at the Ripley County Humane Society. He was a huge animal lover. He also enjoyed working at many different places – most recently Hill-Rom, Amazon, and Versailles State Park. He loved people – they were his “audience” for many, many stories and jokes. He will be dearly missed by many.
There will be a gathering to celebrate Gene’s life on Saturday, October 3, 2020 at 2:00 PM at the Versailles State Park – Schimmerhorn Shelter.
