Gene Wilson Quincy

November 23, 1939 — August 3, 2023

Gene Wilson Quincy passed away at home on Thursday, August 3, 2023, from Parkinsons. He was born on November 23, 1939, in Denver, Colorado to Alford A. Quincy and Lorna M. Quincy. He graduated from Denver East High School where he was a member of the Wrestling Team. He continued his education at Colorado University, where he was a member of the Hiking Club and graduated with degrees in Psychology and Geology. After college, he joined the Army Reserves. Searching for a job in 1964, he came to Texas and was hired by The Texas Employment Commission as a Counselor. This was during LBJ’s Great Society. Gene joined fellow employees walking the streets of Fort Worth’s poverty areas. They had various programs that helped people have a better life. TEC sent Gene to Ruston, Louisiana to Louisiana Tech for his Master’s Degree in Counseling. He graduated after 34 years of service. This prepared Gene for a passion later in life to join Genie in feeding the hungry and serving the homeless. In 1974, Gene found love with Genie Quincy, and together, they raised a family that included Genie’s children, Chrissie and Jimmy, and Gene’s son, Lance. Their marriage lasted for nearly 49 years and was filled with love and cherished moments. Gene had a passion for reading, music and nature, and was an active member of First Christian Church. In the Christian Church he served as a Deacon, Elder, and Trustee. An active member of Free Spirit Sunday School Class, he was intelligent, deeply spiritual, a teacher, and very witty. We will miss him. Gene’s memory lives on in the hearts of his beloved wife, Genie Quincy; his son, Lance Quincy and wife, Geneva; his brother, Ken Quincy and wife, Judy.
