He was born August 23, 1934 to Kenneth and Betty Ostrom Schriver in Gothenburg.
He grew up in Gothenburg and attended Gothenburg Public Schools and graduated from Gothenburg High with the class of 1953.
Gene, as most knew him, met his wife Velma Winchester in Gothenburg and became betrothed to her, April 10th, 1960, in Ord, NE. To that marriage, three boys were born, Greg, Monty, and Dale.
Gene spent some time in the Army where he later became an Inactive Reservist for six years. Receiving an Honorable Discharge in 1963. He continued to be an independent milkman, delivering to "you Door or Store" as was indicated on his milk truck's logo, for 42 years, before retiring. He also enjoyed wood working and redoing upholstery.
Gene was a long standing member of the First Baptist Church. He had a strong love for the Lord and was a strong steward at the church and community.
He spent most of his free moments at Jeffrey Lake fishing and summer activities with his family. He loved all outdoor sports from hunting ducks in the morning and pheasants in the afternoon. When the seasons were open, most Saturdays and Sundays were spent doing just that. It was something that he always included the boys in and a lot of fishing was done at Jeffrey Lake.
He is survived by his wife Velma, three Sons, Greg, Monty (Sherri) Schriver, of Gothenburg, and Dale (LaWanda) Schriver of Port Orchard, WA. Seven grandchildren and two great grand boys. Sisters, Arita Wilson of Loveland, CO, Carol Surber of Lincoln, NE and Vicki Kinnan of Lincoln, NE.
