Gene Moreno

Gene A. Moreno of Mountain Home, Arkansas, passed away February 18, 2021, in Mountain Home, Arkansas at the age of 83. He was born January 15, 1938, in Cicero, Illinois, the son of Mario and Rose Kemp Moreno. He was married to his wife, Nancy Prancl on January 9, 1961, in Chicago, Illinois and later had four children. Gene lived in Mountain Home since moving from Berwyn, after his retirement from Illinois as a truck driver in 2000. He was a proud member of the 705 Teamsters Union and even more proud Teamsters Steward. Throughout his life he had many proud accomplishments. He received many awards in his lifetime starting with his younger days as a goalie while playing hockey and continuing into his race car driving days. He had many hobbies over the years including playing pool, and of course his greatest loves, fishing and hunting. He was an active member to many clubs. He had the greatest sense of pride for his Chicago Sports teams, DA Bears and of course the Chicago Blackhawks. Most of all, something he will leave behind is his sense of humor that will never be forgotten.

Gene is survived by his daughter, Gina Vasquez (Joseph); five grandchildren, Alyssa, Alexandrea, Ashley, Christina, Nicole; and three great-grandchildren, Adriana, Vito and Damiano. He leaves behind many great friends including his companion Sallie.
