Gene attended Curtis Public School, Newberry High School,, and had a vefry brief stint at Michigan State Univ., Lansing, MI  which ended suddenly when he enlisted for service in the Air Force at the outbreak of the Korean War in 1950.


Gene worked for the Cuyahoaga Railroad in Cleveland, OH for many years after leaving the Air Force, and drove horse drawn carriages on Michigan's famed Mackinac Island (No motor vehicles except for emergency vehicles are allowed on Mackinac Island) for several summers too, after leaving the Air Force in 1975.


I last talked to Gene at the funeral for Capt.William (Bill) Gowan, USAF, Ret. last summer where we discussed his brother Maj. Francis J. Feneley (See this page,) his sister.


Gene was to be 82 on Christmas Day.


So long, old friend you are already sorely missed.
