Gene Alan Boughey

February 24, 1955 — September 7, 2023

Gene Alan Boughey, a loving father, brother, and uncle, departed this world on September 7, 2023, in Greenville, SC. Born on February 24, 1955, in Danville, IL, to the late Wallace and Virginia Boughey, Gene was known for his kindness, intelligence, and a touch of stubbornness that endeared him to all who knew him.

Gene was a man of many talents, having owned his own business repairing computers. His keen intellect was matched only by his diligence and dedication to his craft. His hard work and commitment to his clients were appreciated by all who had the pleasure of working with him. He was a respected figure in his field, often going above and beyond to ensure his customers were satisfied.

Beyond his professional life, Gene was a man who loved life and lived it to the fullest. His passions included travel and photography, each adventure a new opportunity to capture the beauty of the world around him. His love for the North Carolina mountains was well known, a place where he found both peace and inspiration. He always encouraged his daughter, Hannah, to travel and explore the world, imparting on her the same love for adventure that he himself held so dear.

Despite his love for travel, Gene also appreciated solitude, often finding comfort in his own company. He was known for his unique sense of humor, always ready with a joke or a witty retort. One of his most beloved quirks was answering his phone as "Geno's Pizza," a gag that never failed to bring a smile to those on the other end of the line.

Gene leaves behind his cherished daughter, Hannah Pahner, and her husband, Andy. He is also survived by his brother, Thomas Boughey, and his sister, Joan Means, as well as her husband, Tom. His nephews, Billy Boughey, Jeffery Means, Grant Means, and Tyler Means, will fondly remember their uncle's infectious spirit and zest for life. He was predeceased by his parents, Wallace and Virginia Boughey, and his nephew, Jason Means.

In remembering Gene, words such as loving, kind, and intelligent come to mind. He was a man who brought joy and laughter to those around him, a steadfast presence in the lives of his loved ones. His memory will live on in the hearts of all who knew him, a testament to a life well-lived. Gene Alan Boughey may have left this world, but his spirit, his love, and his legacy will continue to inspire those who were lucky enough to know him.
