Gene was many things; first and foremost: a husband, father, and grandfather. Married to Dorothy for 64 years, Gene and Dotty were attached at the hip, travelling across the world and back again. From graduating Natick High School, to serving in the Army, to his three decades of work in the credit reporting industry, Gene exemplified great success and ambition throughout his entire life. He worked every day to make sure his children and grandchildren would have the opportunity to become everything they aspired to be. Gene loved shopping, dancing, fishing, and his summers in the Cape. Adored and admired by all who knew him, he spent his time with the people he loved the most: his friends and family. A family-man, a story-teller, a leader, and a jack of all trades; Gene will be dearly missed.
