He was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan on May 20, 1967 to Eugene Sr. and Diane Kipp. He grew up in Grand Rapids and was a resident of Cedar Springs at the time of his passing. Gene loved old cars, going to car shows and also enjoyed working on them. He will be remembered by his family as a hardworking, all-around great guy who loved spending time with family and friends. And, that he always had a Mountain Dew and Twizzlers close by. Gene had many nicknames but he will be lovingly remembered by his wife as “Pooh Bear”.
