Hobert Eugene Morehead “Gene” 78, of Rising Sun, IN, born
December 6, 1944, from Moores Hill, passed away on March 4, 2023.
Gene was preceded in death by his parents, John H. Morehead and
Mabel Abbott (Wilmer); brother, Charles “Pud” Morehead; sister, Judy
Weber; sister-in-law, Gloria Morehead; brother-in-law, Bob Weber;
nephew, David Morehead. He is survived by his loving wife of almost
55 years, Linda Morehead; his children, Timothy Morehead and
Michelle Jones (David); his grandchildren, Brock Jones, Chase Jones,
and Lyndzi Jones; brother, Dale Abbott; sister, Debbie Watkins; sister-
in-laws, Brenda Cook and Barbara Albright (Tim) and many cousins,

Gene served in the United States Marine Corps, stationed in San
Diego, CA, Okinawa, Japan, Hawaii and Camp Lejeune, NC. He
worked for Volvo of North America in Chicago and Atlanta until he
retired and moved to Rising Sun to pursue farming. He enjoyed his
oversized garden every year, riding on his tractor, fishing, hunting,
going on runs with his veterinarian to local farms, and spending time
with his grandchildren. In the past few years, he spent much of his
time watching cowboys, Fox News, and football games. He was a
mentor to so many over the years, always there to listen and offer
advice to anyone that asked for it (or didn’t). He firmly believed in
working hard to make dreams a reality, and when he decided he
wanted to do something, he did it wholeheartedly.
