Gene Bores, known as “Buzz”, from his Navy pilot days, passed away on August 23, at the age of 92.  Gene was born and in Springfield, Illinois, but spent most of his life following the call of the US Navy and settling down in Pensacola with the love of his life, his wife Mary Evelyn McDonald Bores.  As a young man, Gene served with the US Marines before transferring to the Navy so he could fly.  He served in the Korean War, the Cuban Missile conflict, and as a flight trainer at NAS Pensacola.  When told he would have to fly a desk, he resigned his commission and went back to college, graduating with a degree in education.  He then taught math at Washington and Tate High Schools, before retiring yet again, only to take up a new career in real estate with Odom Realty. Gene was absolutely dedicated to his wife of 49 years, Mary Evelyn, who was bed ridden the last 7 years of her life due to ALS.  Gene is survived by his daughter Kathy (Mark) and son Keith (Pam), and grandchildren Jesse, Samantha, Michelle and Marie; and great grandchildren Annabelle and Logan. The internment will be a private family service.   A memorial will be held on Wednesday, August 30 at 11am at Waters & Hibbert Funeral Home WATERS & HIBBERT FUNERAL HOME is in charge of arrangements.
