Mountaineer. Nicknamed "The Pirate", Genet was an Alaskan, mountain climber that established a record by making 25 successful climbs to the summit of Mt. McKinley, including the first successful winter ascent with three other climbers. He froze to death in his sleeping bag on the descent of Mt. Everest, and is still entombed on the side of that mountain to this day.The inscription on his cenotaph reads, "Let all who read this know that this man never said 'I quit.'" Husband of Wurtila Dora Kilcher.
