Gene was born on August 4, 1946 in Tilden, Nebraska to George and Eula (Halsey) Humphrey. Gene attended grade school at a rural country school near Meadow Grove, graduating from Meadow Grove High School in 1964. Shortly after high school Gene proudly served his country in the United States Army from February 15, 1966 – February 5, 1968. After his return home from the military Gene moved to Battle Creek in 1969. Gene married Kathleen “Kathy” Tegeler on June 8, 1969 at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Battle Creek. Gene was a hard-working individual who learned the trade of being a Construction Contractor, mainly specializing in concrete work. Gene always had a smile on his face and a willingness to chat with anyone. Gene was an avid supporter of the Battle Creek Ball Association and Battle Creek Athletics for many years. He seldom missed an activity or sporting event that his grand-daughters participated in. Coming from a large family, time spent with family was of great importance to Gene.
