    Eugene will be greatly missed. I will miss seeing him sit out the front porch, saying hi as I leave the house. Waving at me. I will miss his smile and his stories. He loved talking about his days as a machinist. I will miss him keeping Jeff company on summer days. I know Jeff will greatly miss Eugene. There is a hole in our lives and in our neighborhood. Eugene you were greatly loved by us all. We can only find peace in knowing you are at peace. No more pain. Time to rest in peace, but forever in our hearts.

    I’ll forever be your tech helper Eugene! Though sometimes I might have been in a hurry or busy I always tried to make it a point you got what you needed or wanted and you understood whatever you asked me about. I even remember the days I helped with you with your desktop computer! You are already greatly missed, love you and sleep easy Grandpa! Hope the IT guy upstairs is just as sharp!
