Eugene E. Jennings, 77, of Holt, passed away Nov. 24, at home.

Gene was born on March 28, 1943, in Neosho, Missouri, to LaVona DePriest Jennings and Francis Jennings. Later, the family moved to Yakima, Washington, where Gene spent his growing-up years. After graduation from Eisenhower High School in 1960, he moved to the Kansas City area to attend college, where he studied to become a CPA.

Gene loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman. He and his sons spent many hours in deer stands and fishing boats.

Gene leaves his wife of 54 years, Joyce; his sons, Justin and Jason (Stephanie); grandchildren, Chloe and Drake; sisters, Juanita Wilburn of Union Gap, Washington and Loretta Hellinger of Grandview, Mo; nieces, nephews and cousins; and many, many friends.

A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

He will be missed.
