A true gentleman who will be greatly missed! Kind, quiet, loving, radiating peace. He and his wife went above and beyond the call of duty. I'm sure the angels sang at his arrival when he went to his eternal home. He loved and served the Lord!

So very sorry to learn of Eugene's passing. My deepest sympathy to Elizabeth and all the family. I do not think I ever saw Eugene without a smile on his face. He will be greatly missed!
