Gene was born on August 18, 1929, in Muscatine, Iowa, the son of Royal George and Anna Daut Hintermeister. He was raised in the Muscatine area and attended both Franklin grade school and rural school.

On January 15, 1955, he was united in marriage with Joyce Ann Smith, at Grace Lutheran Church in Keokuk, Iowa.

In his early years, Gene worked on a farm, as a woodworker for Huttig Manufacturing Company and also at the Heinz Company in Muscatine. Later he began farming in the Poweshiek and Tama County areas. In 1970, the couple moved to their farmstead near Malcom. He loved his life on the farm and raising cattle and hogs.

Gene held a strong faith in God and followed the teachings and beliefs of Jesus Christ. He loved his family and enjoyed their company. He was a fan of John Wayne and watching old western movies and TV shows, like Bonanza and the Lone Ranger, was a favorite of his. He enjoyed chocolate and attending the Iowa State Fair.
