At a young age his family moved to the Henning family farm in Dixon Township. Gene graduated Dixon-Israel High School in 1954 and served in the US Army. He married Nora Goodman on September 23, 1967 and was a third-generation farmer of the family land until retirement when he entrusted the farm to his son, Michael.  Gene and Nora raised 4 loving children, Linda, Deborah (predeceased), Michael, and Heather and enjoyed spending time with their grandchildren and great-granddaughter.
