Bio: Eugene Herman Wynn, Jr. was born to Eugene and Linda (Reis) Wynn, Sr. in Sioux City, Iowa and was raised in Luck, Wisconsin.

Eugene loved the outdoors from an early age and dreamed of becoming a conservation officer. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point with a degree in Natural Resources and Wildlife Management. In 2001, he was hired as a conservation officer with the Minnesota DNR.

In 1998, Eugene met Heather, the love of his life, while they were both working at Interstate Park in St. Croix Falls. In 2007, they were married at an outdoor ceremony in Wisconsin. Eugene and Heather made their home on the banks of the Snake River, where they are raising their children, Sophie (11) and EJ (5).

Although Eugene made his home in Minnesota, his Wisconsin blood ran strong and he loved the Green Bay Packers and the Wisconsin Badgers.

Eugene enjoyed hunting, fishing, and camping and loved sharing those passions with his family and friends. Eugene was an exemplary law enforcement officer and was fiercely loyal to his law enforcement family.

Eugene left a hole that can never be filled.

Survived by:
Wife
and two children
