Bowling News USA - August 19, 2014 Detroit Bowling Legend, PBA Hall of Famer Gene Stus Passes Away at 74 - Services set for tomorrow

One of the greatest players in PBA Senior Tour history, Gene Stus collected ten PBA Senior Tour titles over the course of his outstanding career. Stus was inducted into the PBA Hall of Fame, April 14, 2012.  He also became the first-ever senior player to bowl 300 on TV when he defeated Don Gilman 300-188 at the 1992 PBA Pacific Cal Senior Open on ESPN. 

Stus compiled a 201 average over 25 years competing in the USBC Open Championships, where he won three Eagles (1990 Team title, 1992 Doubles title, 1997 Team All-Events title).

Stus is also a member of the Taylor Sports Hall of Fame, the Greater Detroit Bowling Association Hall of Fame, and the Michigan State Bowling Association Hall of Fame. (

In a 2012 interview about being inducted into the PBA Hall of Fame with Dave Gorgon of The News-Herald , Stus summed up his professional bowling career by saying, "“It was an honor to bowl with bowling’s greats who I admired my whole life, and I always wondered how I would measure up,” said Stus, who has lived in Taylor for more than a third of his life. “When I was able to retire at 50, I started to get back to bowling seriously and found I still had the touch.”  [view article]
