Gene was born in Stockton, California. He was a lifelong resident of California. He worked at MacKAy & Somps much of his career doing civil engineering and mentoring young architects. Gene also owned his own company where he designed and built several houses in this area. He was happiest mentoring and designing.
He was an avid athlete enjoying tennis, skiing, waterskiing, golf, and bowling.
Gene was the kind of person that made you feel better no matter what kind of mood you were in. He knew how to make everything he did fun and playful. He made everyone around him feel special. We will miss him greatly, but we will carry on and have fun whether we like it or not!
