An avid outdoorsman, he loved taking his wife and children on family camping trips and teaching them to appreciate nature as well as to hunt and fish. After he retired as Electrical Superintendent at Menasha Utilities, Gene and Karen moved into their dream home on a lake in Northern Wisconsin. He relished his quiet time there, cheering on the Packers and the Brewers and, with his binoculars always handy, watching the loons swim by the house and the lake's lone eagle swoop in to grab a meal.

Married for 56 years, Gene's time with his wife was marked by true love, devotion, and sacrifice. One was never without the other, and they saw each other through all of life's stages from Karen pursuing her medical degree side by side with him as he pursued his, watching their children have children, to their golden years enjoying their lake.

Above all, his wife, children, and grandchildren were the most important things in his life. And never one to back down from a challenge, Gene attended every basketball, football, and volleyball game, track and gymnastics meet, dance recital, and robotics competition that his grandchildren participated in, even if it meant traveling all over the country on caffeine and little sleep.

Gene is survived by his wife: Karen of Laona; three children: Jon (Michelle) Beimborn of Eau Claire, Kristin (Mike) Rheingans of Darboy, and Jamie (Lisa) Beimborn of Brillion; six grandchildren: Taylor and Alexandra Beimborn; Kaitlin (Michael Maigatter) Rheingans, Matthew (Erin Kramer and Izzy) Rheingans, and Nateah (Eric Zuelsdorf) and Alaina Beimborn.
