Gene was hired by Burroughs Wellcome as a Pharmaceutical Sales Representative, where he worked his way up to District Sales Manager of the Bay Area and Hawaii in 1969. His district became the number one in sales for the pharmaceutical division in the entire country. He retired in 1994.

Over the span of forty years, he coached more than eighty different teams in basketball, baseball, soccer, and football, including several all-star teams. Gene served on the Valley Christian School Board and became President of the board in 1990. Gene will always be remembered as a loving husband, hard worker, loyal friend, and an on-the-floor type of dad. When Gene spoke, people listened. He was confident, likable, protective of his family, and above all else, a faithful man of God. Gene always told his family â€œIf anything ever happens to me, just know that Iâ€™ve had a good life.â€? Gene leaves behind many friends and a huge family, but he had a heart big enough to hold all of us. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2012 at 1:00pm at Valley Christian Church, 7500 Inspiration Drive, Dublin, CA. In lieu of flowers, Geneâ€™s family asks friends to shoot a couple of free throws in his memory, and/or make a donation to the Valley Christian Athletic Department. www.vcsathletics. com/contact_us.html
