Eugene A. Kapaun, 80, passed away on March 11, 2019 in Thornton, CO.

He was born in Fargo, ND on March 7, 1939. As a child, he spent many happy summers on his grandparent’s farm. He married Mary Sondag on May 21, 1960 in Sykeston, ND. The couple met while Eugene was enrolled at Interstate Business College. He attended with Mary’s sister, Darlene. Only after a few dates, he pulled out his calendar and stated “I’m going to marry you on May 21, 1960” and he did.

The couple moved to Colorado in 1966. He went back to college in 1968 and received a degree for Accounting from Park School of Business. He worked for Adams County Mental Health for about 10 years after graduating. Eugene worked as an accountant for Jefferson County Community Center for 21 years before retiring in 1999. He also had a Tax business for 52 years during that time. Eugene continued his Tax business until 2017.

Eugene was an active member of Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church for 41 years. He is a distant cousin of Father Emil Kapaun from Kansas who is being considered for canonization (sainthood).

He is survived by his wife, Mary Kapaun; seven children: Jeffrey (Irene) Kapaun, Michelle (Shawn) Carpenter, Gregory (dawn) Kapaun, Thomas (Dorothy) Kapaun, Pamela Kapaun, Michael Kapaun and Nicoleta (Matthew) Warner; 10 grandchildren; 5 great grandchildren; 2 step-great grandchildren and one expected in June.

Our prayers are with Eugene's family and you are close in our hearts. I have many happy memories of dear Eugene, my cousin. He was a gentle soul, a good man, always had a smile on his face and had a good sense of humor. I remember how good Eugene, Mary and their family was to my dear parents, too. He will be missed greatly. May you rest in peace, dear cousin Eugene. Love, Patty and Frank The photo I am sharing was one in my Mom's photo album. It is Grandma Puhr with Evy and Eugene circa 1940 on the farm in Fingal, ND
