I just learned of Eugene's passing. I remember the last time I saw him was at a wedding for your daughter that I officiated. "Bobby Gene" is what I fondly called him when we worked together at Missouri State University. I could always count on him for a laugh when I needed one. He and my late husband, Ken Scott, were friends and could get into more "trouble" than I'll say in public. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Valerie, We were so sorry to hear of Eugene's passing. He was a wonderful and dedicated employee when we worked together in the Safety and Transportation Department at MSU. He was a man of great integrity who loved his family. He was also a great woodsman and we really appreciated his hard work supplying us with firewood We enjoyed visiting with you both when you delivered the cut firewood. We are also very thankful that his sister was with him the day a tree he had cut down flipped and pinned his leg to the ground causing a sever fracture. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Mike and Maranelle Batchelder

Eugene was truly "one of the good guys" that you enjoy being around. During the last couple of years when I lost family members, Eugene was always there for our family and his presence alone made things better. A million dollar smile and great sense of humor.

Eugene was always someone I looked up to. I will always remember the times me and Pat were allowed to go fishing with the 'boys.' I truly believe he found happiness and peace in his life. Thank you for everything Eugene! Rick
