Gene Ivan Gast

March 23, 1951 — October 24, 2022

Eugene Ivan “Gene” Gast, 71, of Moorhead, MN, passed away on Monday, October 24, 2022, at Sanford Health Hospital, Fargo, ND.

Gene was born on March 23, 1951, to Albert and Dorathea (Weber) Gast, in Breckenridge, MN. He grew up in Breckenridge where he attended and graduated from Breckenridge High School in 1969. He then attended Detroit Lakes Technical College where he graduated with his Associates Degree in Carpentry in 1971. He was united in marriage to Sue Quam on August 23, 1980. He worked various jobs over the years, and he died doing what he loved, farming and carpentry.

Gene enjoyed building and fixing. If anything was broken, he had the ability to repair it. He enjoyed fishing, spending time at the lake, and spending time with family and friends. Above all, he absolutely worshipped his grandchildren.

Gene is survived by his loving wife, Sue; children, Craig (Katie) Gast and Kevin (Chrissy) Gast; grandchildren, Callie, Kelsey, Isaac, and Morgan; mother-in-law, Fern Foyt; and many other loving relatives and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents, Albert and Dorathea; and siblings, Don Lelm, Delores Bezenek, and Warren Gast.
