Gene graduated from Bosse High School in 1946. He served in the U.S. Army and was stationed at Ft. Eustis, Va. He worked at International Harvester, National City Bank, and Old National Bank. He was a member of the Hadi Shrine and the Reed Lodge # 316 Free and Accepted Masons.

Anyone who knew Gene knew he was especially proud of his grandchildren who he loved very much. He often wore one of his many West Point caps. He liked to tease Emily about her "outranking" her grandpa in the Army. He was proud of Erin at Western Kentucky University and always asked her if she had met a rich farmer yet, which always tickled her. He enjoyed going to their property in Kentucky, Notre Dame football games and his pets, Meg, Jackie, and Tom 1 and 2.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Nellie Dell Bassett, who died in 1929. His grandparents, who adopted and raised him, John and Mona Bassett; brothers, George (G.W.), John, Charles and Henry Bassett; and a sister, Margaret Murphy.

Gene is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 55 years, Gladys (Jean O'Nan) Bassett; daughter, Mindy Miller and her husband, Joe; son, James; two granddaughters, Emily Miller of Ft. Lewis, Wash., and Erin Miller of Evansville.
