Gene was born to Rudolf L. and Beulah Esp Forster on June 2, 1938, in Big Timber.
He grew up on the family ranch with his brother Ray, in Greycliff Montana.
He had a love and passion for agriculture. He learned about genetics by raising angora rabbits. He used this knowledge to build a successful registered Hereford business throughout his life, while caring for his mother.
In his younger years, he hunted and fished the Yellowstone River. Gene’s love for music was inspired by his mom.
He could sing and play the piano as well. In his later years, he enjoyed friends and family or whoever he could get to come over to sing and play music with him.
Gene will be missed by many, especially Jake Klingensmith and his family.
