Eugene was well known around Alpena, as he never wanted to live anywhere else. He left town when he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and was always a proud Marine. He returned home to Alpena after his duty and began work at Fletcher Paper Company, retiring in 2000. Known for his red hair in his youth, friends called him Red.

Eugene was active in sports from the time he was young. He played football in high school and enjoyed playing softball well into retirement. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. Eugene was a member of All Saints of Alpena and the Marine Corps League. Above all, he enjoyed spending time with his family and grandchildren.
