My condolences go to the family. I was sorry to hear of Eugene's passing. You don't know me, but he was my first cousin. I live in Greeneville, TN. Eugene and I used to play together when we were children. .

First of all, my condolences to the family. My Aunt Carol, cousins and second cousins. My Uncle Eugene will truly be missed. He was a great person and an awesome uncle. Over all my years, I can't remember him ever being angry. He was an even-tempered, great and loving person. A true down-to-earth and faithful man who never wavered from his good values and morals. Growing up with Eugene as my uncle was wonderful, to say the least. I remember as a child, helping him tinker with things and felt like I was on top of the world while helping him. I remember wanting to grow up and be like him. He was truly amazing. And ironically, wound up driving a tour bus for many years. Eugene was more than an uncle to me. He was one of the role models that I've carried in my life. Yes, he will be greatly missed. Rest in peace Uncle Eugene. See you again someday. I love you!
