(Morrison); his children and their spouses: Greg (Katie Collins), Monroe, OH, Brian (Andrea Vandervort), West Milton, OH and Tammy (Zach) Biser-Sherborne, Houston, TX.

Gene grew up attending Tipp City Elementary School and graduated from Tippecanoe High School in 1960. Gene enlisted in the United States Navy serving aboard the USS Little Rock. Afterwards he worked for the Dayton Power and Light, Upper Valley Medical Center, Piqua YMCA and Dayton Manufacturing Company where he retired after 15yrs. He also served as a volunteer Firefighter and Paramedic on the Harrison Twp. Fire Department for several years.
He enjoyed woodworking, yardwork, outdoor hobbies, traveling and a great practical joke. He spent his free time selflessly extending help and assistance to others within his neighborhood, local community, family and friendships. He would be one of the first people to load up his Ford truck with any and every tool he could fit into it, head off to the area in need and would not take “no” for an answer when he offered his knowledge, skills and muscles. His personality was larger than life and full of energy. If you feel a ticklish poke into your rib or an epiphany for a good joke...that's probably Gene giving you encouragement to go for the laugh.
