Gene enjoyed gardening, arguing about NASCAR, tinkering in his garage and having a beer with ALL. But most of all, he enjoyed spending time with family and friends.

Those left to honor his memory include three brothers, Rolland Rochholz, Moline, Kenneth Rochholz, Walcott, and Wendell Rochholz, Pleasant Valley; his sister, Trenna Malone of Davenport; many nieces and nephews, and lots of friends.
