Obituary for Eugene Harold Wilkie

Eugene Wilkie, age 87, of Hubbard, IA, passed away on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at the Hubbard Care Center.
Eugene Harold Wilkie was born on February 6, 1932, the eldest of three sons born to Orson “Ted” and Monica (Dreyer) Wilkie.
Gene grew up on many farms in the Iowa Falls/Hubbard area. He received his education by attending his lower level grades in country school and graduated from Hubbard High School in 1950.
After high school, he was drafted into the Korean Conflict serving in the US Army from 1952-1954.
At the roller-skating rink in Iowa Falls, a young Alice Funkhouser caught the eye of Gene. After a short courtship, they were married on June 4, 1954 in Zearing, Iowa. After they married, they moved to Hubbard where Gene had a job working at the Hubbard Coop Elevator. He remained there for thirty years. He then spent the remainder of his career at the Lawn Hill Coop and Ag-Partners.
Gene had a few passions. One was sheep. He had sheep as long as most can remember, which he showed on many different levels. His other passion was the Hubbard Fire Department where he was involved for 50 plus years, serving as chief for many, many years and later serving as Honorary Chief.
Gene was a life-long member of the Zion United Church of Christ where he served on many boards and church council. He was 50+ year member of the Hubbard American Legion Post #4. He also served on the Suffolk Sheep Board.
Gene passed away on March 9, 2019 at the Hubbard Care Center where he had been a resident for the last 5 ½ years.
Those remaining to cherish his memory include his wife Alice; three sons Greg (Kim), Jori (Sherri) and Kerry (Coralyn) all of Hubbard; five grandchildren Casey, Dusty, Shelbey, Dylin and Jordin; and four great-granddaughters Charlotte, Isla, Lucy and Brylee; along with other relatives and friends.
Gene was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers Karl and Denny.
