I’m still in shock as I had last seen Eugene on the 4th at our session. He was my trainer, sometimes therapist, and friend. When I last am saw him he talked about his new love of fighting. That when he entered the ring and the lights hit him he came to life. His face was all a glow while he told me about his new regimen, like he had fallen in love with this new part of his life and the love shined through him uncontrollably. I will always miss him. I am so sorry for your loss.

I wandered into Markt, 4ish years ago, looking for a quiet meal and glass of wine after a rough workday. Eugene was behind the bar, holding court, as only he could. Within minutes of chatting, I knew I'd stumbled upon one of the most special individuals in all of NYC. He had a wonderfully dark sense of humor, wide mischievous smile, shock of gray hair that only seemed to emphasize his individuality—and a warmth that endeared everyone in his path, colleagues and guests alike. He went on to help me rehab a torn hamstring with tireless commitment. Lament dumb heartbreaks (his and mine) over comedy and Thai food. He checked in on me like family, in a city where I had none. He gave the most authentic bear hugs. Each time we saw each other, or messaged each other, we said "love you." It didn't matter how much time had passed. Cuz that was Eugene. I have no doubt he shared moments like these with a lot of people, because he was just that kind of generous, honest soul. The Eugene I knew just wanted to make people laugh, and help them be healthy and happy. I will think of him every day and feel lucky I had the privilege of calling him friend. I'm sharing a silly text I sent to him on his birthday last year. It was a dorky sentiment from a dorky writer, but the intent was just to let him know he's cherished. I'm sending much love to his family, and sincere gratitude for bringing this beautiful human into so many of our lives, if only for a brief while. Love you, E.

Eugene was one of the kindest, funniest people I've known. The world just lost some of its sparkle.

To Eugene’s Family,

I am still at a loss about the news of Eugene’s passing. My deepest sympathies to your family. As a client of Eugene’s, I had the pleasure of training with him for the past year and every week looked forward to our sessions. He was supportive, encouraging, motivating, knowledgeable, and all around just a pleasure to be around. He had one of the biggest hearts, never a mean word to say, and truly cared about other people. So much life to live- it’s heartbreaking to think he’s gone- so sudden, so soon. I feel honored to have known Eugene and am better for it. Wishing you comfort in this time of heartache.

I was one of Eugene's clients at High Performance Physical Therapy about a year ago, and I worked with him to recover from two separate injuries. Eugene was a fantastic and talented trainer, and a truly kind person I loved talking to. I always looked forward to working with him. It's difficult to believe he's gone. Sending my love to his friends and family.

Prayers and fond memories are what we have to remember our dearest Eugene. He was always so caring, funny in the most not funny/corny ways, selfless and one of the most genuine and honest person I knew. He was always present with great advice about everything and anything in life. It has been such a pleasure to work with him, always on time and ready to help out our patients. May the love of family and friends comfort you during these difficult days, my most heartfelt condolences.

With love,

Extending my deepest sympathy to Eugene’s family. Eugene worked with me for over a year at NYPT for training and rehabilitation after an extensive surgery. I can’t say enough good things about his knowledge, techniques and overall discipline that he instilled in me. He was firm yet compassionate and celebrated every small victory. I feel very blessed to have had Eugene as my trainer/coach. Sending prayers of strength and comfort and am so very sorry for your loss. RIP, Eugene. Timothy Hogue

Eugene was one of my oldest and best friends in New York City. He was funny, selfless and always looked out for me. He called or texted everyday when I was going through a silly breakup. I scroll up on his texts and there are so many “checking in”s from him. He was so caring. We went to see the “latest thrillers” at the theater, he would send me long audio files of his silly jokes, and he loved to cook. He would come to all my shows, even though it "wasn't his type of humor" he still made me believe in myself and saw the best in me when I didn’t always. He was a strong fighter, and persevered with his future goals with physical training and fighting. He was tough and strong, but so soft, caring and gentle. I have a lifetime of inside jokes and advice from him and I'm truly grateful for that and his friendship.

Eugene first made me laugh in fifth grade, and hadn't stopped since then.
He was the most unique person I've ever known through his giant heart, thirst for knowledge and self improvement, depth of soul and philosophy, passion for his art, undying humor and wit, dedication and so much more. He really did light up a room and was loved by everyone in it.
My sincerest condolences to his family. He is gone too soon and I will dearly miss him

This is an irreplaceable loss.
  It hurts to even think about it, it's hard to talk. It is impossible to realize this.
  Eternal memory to Eugene!
