If you knew Eugene you knew that he could build anything with his two hands. He was known to many people as Mr. Blue Jean because you could always catch him in blue overalls. His favorite pastime was dancing with his wife, children and grandchildren. He loved french music and being around family. He was in the army from 1959 through 1962 and served in the Korean War. He leaves behind a host of nieces, nephews, and those he claimed as family. He will be truly missed by all who called him Daddy, Pops and most of all PawPaw.
