Gene graduated from Richfield High School. Throughout his teen years, he logged the Beaver and Cedar Mountains with his Dad, Uncle and brothers, before venturing out on his own.

He married the love of his life, LuWanna Pratt, from Escalante, Utah, June 6, 1968 in McGill, Nevada, after being introduce by his sister, Beverly. LuWanna passed away February 24, 2010.

Gene took on several jobs in the community, working for local farmers and trapping. He worked in maintenance for the Sevier School District until he retired after 29 years.
Gene was an amazing mountain man, avid hunter, fisherman and trapper. He had a great love for the outdoors and loved spending time in the mountains. His favorite places were the 4 Corners, Henry Mountains and the Bears Ears.
