A graduate of Mission High School, St. Ignatius, he lived in Helena, MT for over 30 years before returning to the Mission Valley in 2003.   He was a retired self - employed excavator. 

A humble man with a million dollar smile, fantastic sense of humor and positive attitude, he had a deep love for family and friends. 

He was preceded in death by his beloved first wife of 39 years, Betty Amdor Gunlock, son Scott Gunlock, his parents Harold and Lillie Gunlock, and other family members. 

He is survived by devoted wife Esther Anne Johnson-Gunlock, son Dan E. Gunlock (Jamie), daughter Krisstyn Leiter, son Jeneth (May) Hawke, grandsons Wyatt, Dillon and Jesse Gunlock, brother Daren Gunlock (Debbie), sister Sandi (Gunlock) Baker and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and dear friends including Bill and Janet Austin.

A memorial service to honor Gene’s life will take place at the Polson Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on Saturday, October 29th at noon.  A potluck lunch will follow in the church social hall.
