OBITUARY

Eugene L. Vasek

May 11, 1960October 20, 2021

Eugene “Gene” Leroy Vasek, 61, of Sanford, Florida went to be with his Lord and Savior on October 20, 2021. He was born in Grand Forks, North Dakota on May 11, 1960 to William and Lucille Vasek. He graduated from East Grand Forks Senior High School. He was married to his high school sweetheart, Brenda Burton, on June 25, 1982 and celebrated 39 wonderful years of marriage this year. Gene worked for Cintas First Aid & Safety as a sales representative, and had a passion for people. He lived to bring joy and a smile to anyone he met. He would often show up with his accordion wherever there was a birthday to celebrate and serenade loved ones with the gift God gave him. Since giving his life to Jesus in ‘85, he has been a life-giving member of the church and several worship teams, using his gift to lead people into the presence of God. Gene loved the Lord with all of his heart and took every opportunity to share that love with others. He will be deeply missed, but the impact he made will be felt forever.

He is survived by his wife: Brenda; children: Bryan (Grand Forks, ND), Blake (Ashley) (Sorrento, FL), Jordan (Sanford, FL), Heather Faust (Chris) (Sanford, FL); Grandchildren: Katelyn Orlando (Canton, GA), Lucas Bryan Fishback (Wabash, IN); Siblings: Dennis Vasek (Fargo, ND), Kathie Bushee (Rick) (Mandan, ND), Alan Vasek (JoAnne)(Grand Forks, ND), RaeAnn Wald (Tom)(Grand Forks, ND), Nancy Nisbet (Bill)(East Grand Forks, MN), Joe Vasek (Kathy)(Fargo, ND), Kristen Cummings (Troy)(Grand Forks, ND).
