Gene was born Sept. 15, 1939 in Chicago, Illinois. He moved to Anchor Point in 1965 where he lived for four years before moving to Anchorage in 1969. He lived in Anchorage up until 1988 and then moved back to Anchor Point after leaving Anchorage. Gene was a self-employed floor installer. He loved playing pool, throwing horseshoes, and playing cribbage.
The family wrote, “Dad loved his community. He always said Anchor Point was his home and his family. He was a ‘regular’ at the V.F.W. and enjoyed all the tournaments they held and the great company and conversations it brought. Dad gave his time and talent to those who asked and to those who did not ask. He was caring, honest, strong, smart, and a loving father. We will miss him dearly.”
He is survived by his daughter, Kim Hane of Singapore; son, Greg Lavin of Chugiak, Alaska; daughter, Tracy Boley of Rocklin, California; grandsons, Jonathan Hane of Singapore, Aaron Winter of Denver, Colorado, and Glen Boley of Rocklin, California; granddaughter, Joy Hane of Singapore; and sister, Patricia Fisk of Dixon, California.
