Gene Kiepura

Born and raised in East Hazel Crest, Illinois I married my high school sweetheart in the early 1970s and began a career on the Illinois Central Railroad. Jan and I are the proud parents of three children, and two granddaughters. Our family joined Living Creek in 1995 where we have all served in various roles throughout the years. I enjoy golf, fishing, baseball, writing, art, cooking, gardening, putzing around the garage, and just life in general. I am passionate for the Lord, my wife, and those who grieve. My favorite quote is: “When you and I hurt deeply, what we really need is not an explanation from God but a revelation of God. We need to see how great God is; we need to recover our lost perspective on life. Things get out of proportion when we are suffering, and it takes a vision of something bigger than ourselves to get life’s dimensions adjusted again.”  – Wiersbe
