Gene Paul Hydinger
November 15, 1940 – October 19, 2018
Gene Paul Hydinger passed away on October 19, 2018 at the Medical Center of the Rockies, Loveland, CO at age 77. He was born in Hartington, Nebraska to Paul and Corinne Hydinger. He was raised on the family farm and had fond memories of his childhood. Gene’s love for the beautiful Rocky Mountains brought him to reside in Colorado as an adult. He enjoyed outdoor activities such as fishing, hiking, camping, golfing, and walking in the autumn aspen gold. He was a business owner, starting Gene’s Lawn Service in 1993, which grew to become All Seasons Grounds Maintenance. Even after retirement he remained active in his business and was well known in the community. Gene dedicated his life to his God Jehovah on May 19th, 1991 and became one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. During his life he served as an elder, publisher of the good news, and a faithful brother in the congregation. He thoroughly enjoyed his time in the ministry, sharing with others his bible based hope of the return of a paradise earth. It was this hope that gave him comfort and strength in the face of his recent illnesses, knowing he would be reunited with his loved ones through the resurrection of the dead, as Jesus promised (John 5:28, 29). He is survived by his loving wife, Karen, and his children; Daniel, Brett, Curt, Sean, April (Neuhaus) and Justin (Slidell). He is additionally survived by a brother, James Hydinger along with 11 grandchildren and 4 nieces and nephews. We say goodbye to Gene for now. He will be remembered for his kindness and generosity and his warm smile. He was tremendously loved and will be greatly missed by all. A viewing will be held Friday, Oct. 26th from 1-3 PM at Resthaven Funeral Home. Funeral service will follow at 4pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 628 Ptarmigan Run, Loveland, 80538. A reception will be held at Resthaven Funeral Home from 5-8 PM. Please visit Gene’s tribute page at Resthavencolorado.com and share a memory of Gene with his family.
