Eugene had many friends and it was impossible to go anywhere with him without him running into someone he knew. A man with a big voice and a huge heart.  He will be missed greatly by all who knew him.  He touched many lives. He will be remembered for his love of playing the guitar and singing Hank Williams songs. Everyone that met him loved his hearty sense of humour and his willingness to help you out.

He is so missed, there is a void in our hearts that will never be filled.

"Thank you for all the love you gave me.   There could be no one stronger. Thank you for the many beautiful songs. They are engraved in our hearts and memories.  They will live long and longer" -Hank Williams
