    Eugene will be missed by all who knew him. I am an older first cousin so I knew him all of his life. I loved spending time in Buena Vista with Eugene and his parents and siblings. I know that in heaven, he had a big welcoming committee!!!!

    Bro Eugene as he was known to our church. He joined Harvest Fields Baptist on Jan. 3, 1999. Been an active member just over 20 years where he served as a deacon, SS teacher and wherever he was asked to serve. Always happy and loved the Lord and his church. He will certainly be missed by everyone at Harvest Fields. We all loved him. His favorite song was “Victory in Jesus.” He is now enjoying that “”Victory with Jesus” that he sang about. Our prayers are with Carolyn and his family as they adjust to life without him. Some day we shall meet on the other side. Betty Davidson

    I remember him when I worked at Auto Glass Fed. CU back in the 80’s. Him coming in always with a smile on his face. The last time I seen him was at Harvest Fields Baptist Church. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
