Alton Eugene 'Gene' Money, Green County, KY native

Alton Eugene "Gene" Money was born to George William and Commie Justus Sullivan Money on December 19, 1931, at Pleasant Valley Community in Green County. He married the love of his life, Mary Dolores Morris, on June 23, 1951. Dolores was waiting for Gene, having entered heaven October 15, 2019.

Gene professed faith in Christ as a young man and was a long-time member of Campbellsville Baptist Church.

Gene was a 45-year employee of Tennessee Gas Pipeline Transmission Co., beginning in 1952 at the Gabe Stripping Plant.

He was transferred to a compression station in 1967 with maintenance/clerical duties. In 1976 he was promoted to plant foreman in Catlettsburg, KY, and in 1980 was transferred to pipeline foreman in Winchester, KY, later being promoted to district superintendent in 1983. 1993 brought a transfer back to Campbellsville, with retirement in 1996. Along with retirement came more golf, more time to spend working in the yard, and more time to devote to family.

He is survived by one son and three daughters: Gary E. Money of Campbellsville; VIcki L. Money and husband, Bill Guffy, of Campbellsville; Carolyn Jo Bertram and husband, George Barry "Chip" Bertram, Jr., of Mt. Juliet, TN; Mary Gina Money (Keith Portner) of Cherry Hill, NJ. Gene was the best PaPa ever to five precious grandchildren: Lori McGlocklin of Reading, PA; Brooke DuBois (Jason), Ft. Collins, CO; George Ryan Bertram (Molly), Mt. Juliet, TN; Bethany Wooley (Thomas), Campbellsville; and Tristan Depew, NY, NY. PaPa was blessed with five great-grandchildren: Kaitlyn and Nolan Bertram, Mt. Juliet, TN; Ava and Stella Wooley, Campbellsville; and Taylor DuBois, Ft. Collins, CO.

One of nine children, Gene is survived by sisters Cora Faulkner, Eleanor Hedgespeth (Lilburn), and Sue Sandidge (Terry), and one brother, George Money, Jr. (Sue). He was preceded in death by siblings Agnes Warren, Annas Coleman, Parson Money, and Lois McAnelly. Gene is also survived by Dolores's brothers Robert Morris (Polly), George Morris (Pat), and Orbia Morris (Nancy). Survived by nieces and nephews and a host of other relatives and special friends.

Gene was loved and will be missed by so many. Those left behind find peace and comfort knowing that "Genie Boy" and his "Doe-Doe" are reunited. They will get to celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary in the presence of our Savior. Their hope would be that everyone have the same relationship with Jesus Christ that they held so dear. Auberry Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.
