In his early years, Eugene worked on the family farm and eventually took the farm over at the age of 21. He ran the farm for many years until his retirement. Eugene enjoyed every minute of life, especially spending time with his children and grandchildren. He was very proud of each of them. He loved to take Ranger rides with his grandchildren, watching many different sporting events and spending quality time with his lovely wife, Mary.
