Gene was born in Sauk Centre, MN to George and Elizabeth Schurman. His parents passed when he and his 5 siblings were young children and he went to live with his great uncle and aunt.

He worked for the City of St. Louis Park and the City of Eden Prairie in engineering until his retirement. Gene was a member of the K of C and the VFW.
