Eugene was a proud veteran who served in the US Navy from 1950-1954 on the USS Wright. He owned and operated United Appliance Center in Hackensack for many years, where he repaired household appliances. Originally from Garfield, NJ, he moved to Saddle Brook and then to Paterson to start his family. He later moved to Oakland, NJ.
