Eugene "Gene" Roy Hallock, born Nov. 25, 1941, in Glasgow, Mont., passed away Wednesday, Dec, 27, 2017, at Tru Hospice in Greeley, Colo., at the age of 76.
Per his request, a private family celebration of life service will be held at a later date.
He lived much of his life in Montana, where he worked over the years as a high school business teacher, farmer and truck driver. He loved to hunt the Big Sky state, and shoot the breeze with family and neighbors. He was a very affectionate and fun grandpa. His hugs were world-class.
He married JoAnne Huelle in 2002, taking him to Colorado, where they built a glass art business together – "Snazzy Glass." They met many friends and loved working and traveling together for the last 15 years. He always had a story to share, especially with his coffee buddies, along with a dose of good-natured ribbing. He was known in the neighborhood by all the kids who would call on him to fill their flat tires and basketballs.
Recently, he and JoAnne traveled to Washington, D.C., where he enjoyed touring some of the nation's best war history museums and veteran monuments. He held those who served our country in high esteem.
He will be missed greatly, and we know he is celebrating in heaven with his family and friends that have gone on before him.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Roy and Margaret (Shelden) Hallock.
He is survived by one daughter, Nicole Hoffer, and her husband, Tim, of Bozeman; one son, Tyrone Hallock, and his wife, Danielle, of Opheim; three grandchildren, Tia and Gage Hallock and Laird Hoffer; one sister, Shirley Luethe, and her husband, Gary, of Long Beach, Wash.; one brother, Lowell Hallock and his wife, Colleen, of Sheridan, Mont.; his wife, JoAnne Hallock, of Eaton, Colo.; her children, Carma Snapp, Rusty Huelle and Keila Huelle; and her grandchildren, Sheridan, Ethan, Hunter, Carson and Keiton.
He was previously married to Shari Carlson of Opheim, the mother of Nicole Hoffer and Tyrone Hallock.
The family would like to especially thank Tru Hospice for their outstanding care.
