Gene was born in Smetana on February 3, 1934 to Ben and Berta Siegert. He graduated from Stephen F. Austin High School in 1952. He enlisted in the Army National Guard and a member of Northview Baptist Church for many years.

As a very small boy, he started blacksmithing and welding in his Dad’s shop in Mumford. He owned Gene Siegert Blacksmith and Welding Shop and worked along with his Dad and later his son. His grandson said that PaPa could make anything with iron and loved doing it. He continued welding until the day he died.

Gene enjoyed going out to “his country” and tending to the cows. He loved hunting and fishing with the boys.

Gene was preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Cecil Siegert; and his sister, Patsy Inmon.

He is survived by his loving wife of nearly 50 years, Barbara Siegert; one son, Gerald Siegert; one grandson, Brendan Siegert. He is also survived by one brother and sister-in-law, Herman and Florence Siegert; one sister-in-law, Dot Siegert Henderson; brother-in-law, Ollie Inmon; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Al and Sandra Zweifel and many nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
