Eugene “Gene” Groves, a long-time resident of White City, passed away from natural causes on October 12, 2020, at the age of 90. Gene was born on December 15, 1929 in Bountiful, Utah to George Fredrick and Edith Thelma. After graduating from West High, Gene served his country in Korea in 1951. He went to work for Union Pacific Railroad and later with Norton Christensen Drilling Products. On July 5, 1955 Gene married the love of his life, Veneta Luce. They spent 64 loving, happy years with each other and together they raised four children. Gene’s brothers, sisters, children, and grandchildren have many fond memories traveling, snowmobiling, boating, fishing, camping, and riding ATV’s. Gene was a master with his hands. His woodwork and leatherwork were exceptional. Anything Gene put his mind to, he could accomplish. Vee enjoyed helping Gene make countless beautiful, useful items in his shop. Their children and grandchildren learned many talents from Gene. Gene is preceded in death by his bride, Veneta; Sons Randy and Darrell; Brother, Dale; Sister, Nadine; and his parents. Gene is survived by his children Rick (Lori) and Sheryl; and his grand and great-grandchildren.
