Gene Allen was born on September 23, 1956 in Belmond. He was the oldest child of Wayne and Gloria (Burrs) Stille. Gene was a 1975 graduate of Belmond High School.

After farming in his younger days, Gene worked for Hancock County, plowing snow and maintaining secondary roads for 28 years, retiring in September 2022. He also volunteered on the Goodell Fire Department. Gene was proud to be a lifelong resident of Goodell and thought of everyone as a friend.
