Eugene was born in Bromhead, SK on May 30, 1926.  He attended Dravland, Ratcliffe and Valhaven schools.  After spending time working on the farm with his father, Eugene started working with the Dept. of Highways road building crew around 1950.  Although he operated the cat and scrapper and buggy, he enjoyed operating the grader the most.  He married Jeannette Jorde at Beaubier, SK on November 15, 1957.  They moved to Baildon, SK in 1959 when Eugene worked for Baildon RM.  They moved to the Lake Alma area in the early 1960s where he worked for various RMs and Dept. of Highways crews. 

Eugene was happiest on the farm tending his cattle, training horses, fencing and putting up hay.  He started each day reading his bible, praying over his grandchildren and enjoying a good cup of coffee.  Eugene was content to stay home but enjoyed visiting with neighbors and family when they stop by. 

A Private Family Farewell will be held at a later date.  Interment will be held at St. John’s Cemetery at a later date. 

For family and friends so wishing, charitable donations in memory of Eugene may be made to the Weyburn & District Hospital Foundation, Box 1416, Weyburn, SK, S4H 3J9 or to a food bank of choice.
