Eugene H. 'Gene' Fosburg


He was a member of the American Legion and a life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars for many years.

Prior to working for Dick Blick Co., he had several other job assignments. He sold insurance for Guarantee Mutual Life Ins. Co., The Prudential Insurance Co., State Farm Mutual Ins.

He was also a property Insurance Claim Adjuster for Western Adjustment & Inspection Co., and spent several years in the household goods moving and storage business as Manager of Ferris-Mayflower of Galesburg and Account Salesman for Kreigsman-Mayflower of Pekin, Ill.

He was an active member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Galesburg. He spent many years as a member and four-time President of the civic club Cosmopolitan International. He was a member of Barbershop quartet singers. He was an 8-gallon blood donor for the American Red Cross, and enjoyed watching sports events and playing golf and bowling.

Gene’s greatest satisfaction in life was finding his WWII Army buddies that were still alive. He was shown how to connect with them and never stopped looking. Reunions were held for over 20 years, meeting in cities all over the US.
