A private interment will take place at Mountain View Cemetery in Marietta, GA, on July 26, 2024, followed by a celebration of life, the details of which are to be determined. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to The Alzheimer's Foundation in memory of Eugene, honoring his enduring legacy.
