John "Gene" E. Dawson also was known as "Miss Gina" in his younger days. He considered himself a farmer at heart and also worked in factories and as a waiter, beautician, and tax preparer.

John "Gene" E. Dawson passed away on September 21, 2020, just seven months after his book, "Farm Boy, City Girl" was published.
Dawson was posthumously awarded a PenCraft Award for his memoir.
