Eugene is a veteran of the United States Army serving as Staff Sergeant during WWII and went on to own and operate Rutt Thomas Heating and Cooling Equipment Sales. He was truly larger than life, always technologically forward, loved to engage in intellectual “discussions” and enjoyed being a member of the Knights of Columbus.
