K&S Wire Honors a Man Who Helped Shape Us:
Gene Schwartz, Jr.

November 15, 1963 - February 17, 2018

Gene Schwartz, Jr.

We may form wire, but Gene Jr. helped form us. And it’s no stretch to say that K&S Wire wouldn’t be where we are at today without him.

Gene Jr. joined the family business in the early days. He was there through good times and bad and his determination to see this business succeed, no matter the obstacle, was apparent from the start.

  • He was a team player who’d helped lead throughout his life
  • A sportsman who loved pursuing a trophy buck or bass
  • A friend and father who built lifelong relationships

Gene Jr.'s winning was contagious, and he helped K&S Wire catch it—though he’d be the first to tell you it was a team effort. That’s true, and yet his spirit left a lasting impression on the company. One that helped make us who we are today.

That continued even as Gene Jr.’s health took a turn for the worse. In 2011, he was diagnosed with ALS which ultimately took his life, and yet during the long battle, he never lost his winning spirit. His courage in that fight continues to inspire us, and his legacy continues to shape our future.
