Gene was a simple man and lived a simple life, he loved hunting, fishing and gold panning. His hobby was carving anything from wood including walking sticks, owls, and other beautiful pieces.  His other enjoyment was going to Circle K everyday to get a scratch off lottery ticket. He bought his last one Tuesday.

Gene was preceded in death by brothers Kendall and Ray Linker, sisters Ruth Barrier and Frances Kanipe.
