He is survived by his sons Gene, Stephen, and KaLani, daughter LeiNani, mother Norma-Jean, sister Debra, brother Jeff (Judy), and nephews Sam and Christian. He is preceded in death by his father, Ned.

Gene was born in Des Moines where he attended Lincoln High School and graduated in 1969. Self-employed for most his life, Gene's true passion was for music, playing in numerous rock 'n' roll bands throughout his life. A memorial party to celebrate his life is being planned for a later date. A musical jam session in his honor is being held this Sunday at Orlando's Restaurant at 1 o'clock p.m.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to his family.
