Gene was the father of Rochelle. Gene was known to be really funny, always making jokes that made people laugh. Unfortunately, while telling jokes at the dinner table in Everybody Hates Funerals, he had a heart attack. Nobody knew that he was having a heart attack because since Gene was always joking, and they thought it was a joke but it was too late when they found out Gene was actually having a heart attack. He only made three appearances in Everybody Hates Funerals, Everybody Hates the Port Authority, and in Everybody Hates Gambling. He was potrayed by Jimmie Walker.
