 I have known Eugene my entire life because he was not only a family friend; he was my daddys best friend. They were close in age and both Korean War veterans.
Eugene was a joy to be around. I remember being present when he and Flossie and my mom and dad would be visiting each other and listening to all their stories and jokes. There was always humor around. Eugene was a good man and an even better friend to those that knew him. He will forever missed. My prayers are with the family that Gods comfort and peace be over them in the difficult days ahead. I love all of you
