His enjoyed almost as many years in retirement as he did his working career. Never idle, after retirement he took a class to learn the skill of small engine repair, a service that always kept Rachel’s mower maintained and their yard well-manicured. He took great pride in his yard and garden each year. Eugene also enjoyed collecting and shooting firearms. He and Rachel enjoyed several winters in Bradenton, Florida, which became a popular place for their family to visit them each year. Eugene loved the Lord, his family, and all of God’s people. He was friendly and quick to greet anyone he encountered, never meeting a stranger.
