In 1938 he was the State of Utah Ping-Pong Champion, an award that gave him great pride.
For many years, Gene owned and managed the Hub Clothing Store in Salt Lake City, and was a well known downtown retailer. After retirement, he became a SCORE volunteer and for years assisted many local small businesses. Gene was also active in many Jewish activities and was a past president of B'Nai Brith. He had a wonderful love and respect for his faith.
