Gene was the rock of the family, whose influence extended well beyond his immediate family. He was a lifelong educational administrator serving in several school districts in various states. He loved to golf, tell stories, garden, fish with his grandchildren, smoke cigars, and travel with his wife. Time spent with his children at the horse races was his most recent favorite past time.
He is survived by four children, Ann James, Ruth (Brian) Stone, Jane (Jeff) McDaniel, and David (Hoa) Lavender; ten grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews and friends. He was preceded in death by his wife, Joyce; and his brothers and sisters.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Pleasant Valley Cemetery Association, 1098 Greene Road, Minden, Louisiana, 71055.
