Obituary for Gene A. Putman

Gene A. Putman, 80, of Florence, died February 14th, 2019. Visitation will be Monday, February 18th from 12 -2 p.m. at Rogersville Funeral Home with funeral service following in the chapel. Burial will be held in Barkley-White Cemetery.
Gene is preceded in death by his first wife, Bobbi Dicus; parents, Jessie Putman and Verlie Covington Putman; sisters, Nell Holden, Peggy Putman, Doris Myrick and Janie Putman; brothers, Dennis Putman and Jesse Putman, Jr. He is survived by his wife, Sherry Slaton Patton Putman; Step-daughters, Karen Landry and Alicia Patton; sisters, Bobbi Wright and Valerie Lee Rideout, Freda Michael, Annette Putman and Cassie Cleveland; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Gene was truly a talented genealogist, author, handyman, business man and distinguished veteran. He was instrumental in the rejuvenation of Barkley-White Cemetery, it was his passion. He loved music, watches, thrift stores, crossword puzzles, homegrown tomatoes and politics. He dearly loved his wife, family, friends and his two fur babies, named Holley and Ziggy.
His loss is so unexpected and leaves such a great void in our lives.
Thank you to all Gene’s family and friends for their love, support and prayers. A special thank you to his nephew, Danny Putman, for his vigil during Gene’s brief stay in the critical care unit at North Alabama Medical Center.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to Barkley-White Cemetery maintenance, Florence Animal Shelter or the American Legion Honor Guard.
