Gene died April 2003 from colon cancer. Gene owned and managed Younker Nissan after buying the dealership from Sam Younker in the mid 1980s. Younker hired Gene in 1973 as salesman and when Sam retired he offered the dealership to Gene. I can still remember the TV commercials Gene and his son Jimmy did, Jimmy now runs the dealership. I also remember when Gene worked at Renton Clothing while in high school, there till '73. He was good friends with Steve Irish.
