Eugene loved working on and repairing vehicles. He also enjoyed classic cars, collecting vehicles including models of them. Eugene loved to go fishing and spend time with his grandchildren and going on four-wheeler rides. If you couldn’t find Gene spending time with his grandchildren or his significant other, you could find him out in his garage doing something, even if it was just putting tools away. His garage was his little get away place where he loved to be.
