Upon completion of his tour of duty, he returned to Brockway and began what would become an illustrious sales career which he thoroughly enjoyed. Gene was a family man and an avid story teller who enjoyed nothing better than being outside on his John Deere, and bringing smiles to anyone lucky enough to share a moment or two of his time. Gene was an active member of St. Tobias Catholic Church in Brockway where he assisted with daily mass, serving as Eucharistic Minister, assisting in numerous funeral mass’s, and was a member of the St. Vincent de Paul Society. One of his greatest joys at the church was delivering food to home-bound families during the holiday seasons while sharing stories, hugs and smiles to brighten their days.

Surviving family members are daughter Bridgit Ann Strishock of Brockway, PA; son Christopher Gene Strishock and his wife Gina Verne Strishock of Sandy Hook, VA; and son Darin Nicholas Strishock of DuBois, PA; 2 grandsons Mark and Brandon Huffman.
