Gene worked as a cook at Swingbelly’s for the past 17 years. Prior to that he was the kitchen manager at Pullman Cafe. He made many lasting friendships during his tenures that he valued dearly.
Gene was a simple man who always spent his mornings drinking coffee while listening to the radio, and his evenings watching television with his wife. In their younger years, Gene would spend his free time with his sons, often times taking them fishing and attending their baseball games. He always looked forward to the annual family trip to Indiana Beach, as he cherished the time he got to spend with his family. Gene was also an avid Cubs fan, and he thoroughly enjoyed the 2016 season. He was always up for sharing a cold beer with family and friends.
