Greenwood, Indiana | Age 88
After a brief illness, Eugene R. "Gene" Guenin, age 88, of Greenwood, died peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Monday, January 30, 2017.
Gene was born in South Bend, IN to Celesta and Rolland Guenin. He attended St. Joan of Arc and Cathedral High School. He worked as a truck driver for many years and retired from Hugh J. Baker Co. of Indianapolis where he drove "more miles in reverse than you will ever drive forward".
Gene will always be loved and remembered for his generous kind spirit, his love of animals, for the thrill of a challenging game of Euchre and as our family's "Mr. Fixit".
The family wishes to extend our sincere appreciation and thanks to all the wonderful staff of Greenwood Meadows for their patient caring and skillful attention that They gave Gene while he was in their charge.
Gene is survived by his wife of 68 years, Dee Guenin; three sons, Darrell, Pat, and Paul Guenin; and his favorite daughter Beth Bergman and many other family members. He is preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Betty Kocher and his brother, Whitey Guenin.
