Eugene Harold Boner was born November 20,1943 to Harold and Verla (Gouldie) Boner in Red Cloud, Nebraska. Although a farming accident unexpectedly took his life on April 29, 2021, Gene was doing what he loved.
Gene resided in Line Precinct all of his life and attended Red Cloud public schools. He was united in marriage with Serena Hansen in September 1963 and they established their family farm southwest of Red Cloud. To this union were born two daughters, Martha and Marie.
Gene grew up in 4-H and FFA and so began his lifelong passion for Hereford cattle. After their girls graduated and began families of their own, Gene continued to be involved in both organizations by helping in the show ring passing on pointers and assuring nervous kids they had a winner.
He was preceded in death by his sister Martha Jane and his parents, Harold and Verla.
Left to carry on his memory are his wife Serena, daughters Martha Meyers, Marie Farr and husband Bill, grandchildren Mikhaila and Chaz Heim, Joshua Meyers, Dorie Meyers, Levi Farr, and seven great grandchildren along with other family and numerous friends.
Graveside services were Wednesday, 2:00 pm, May 5, 2021 at the Walnut Creek Cemetery with Jeff Ord officiating.
A memorial fund has been established by the family for later designation.
