Gene E. Kubacki, 48, of Kinde, passed away unexpectedly in a farming accident on Saturday, October 12, 2013. He was born September 11, 1965 in Bad Axe, the son of Edward and Catherine (Pluciennik) Kubacki. Gene and Carolyn (Hallitt) were united in marriage on August 15, 1992 at the Sacred Heart Church in Bad Axe. He was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Dwight. Gene enjoyed farming for most of his life, only slowing down over the last few years due to past injuries. He loved to spend time on the family farm with his son, Josh, doing any little job that would help him out. He was a very caring man and would do anything he could to help a friend in need. Gene loved to go to the tractor pulls with friends and the annual Port Hope Old Engine Show. He also took great pleasure in collecting John Deere toy tractors that were like the ones they used on the farm over his lifetime. He especially liked going out on the boat with his son and just relaxing on the water. Gene was a dedicated family man and he loved being with his family more than anything else.
