He went to school afterwards and became an electrical engineer with GE and NCR. His career took him and his family to Utica, NY, Xenia, OH and New Concord, OH. He was active in the Masonic Lodge throughout his life. Gene is survived by his loving wife, Marion (Herriman) Morrison. They were married nearly 70 years. They had three kids, Thomas Rick Morrison (Connie) in Beavercreek, OH, Greg Morrison (Irene) in Edmond, OK and Monica Grubb (Darrel) in Whipple, OH. Six grandkids, Lessa, Maggie, and Calvin in Marietta, Ohio and Matthew, Dominik, and Steven in Edmond, OK. And great granddaughter, Evelyn in Marietta. Gene and Marion made many friends along the way, including most recently at Oak Grove Community near Englewood, FL. He loved to share his life stories in a very animated fashion that brought a smile to many faces. He will be remembered and missed. Gene will be buried at Sarasota National Cemetery.
