Born on February 19, 1928, Eugene Shreve passed away peacefully on Monday, August 1, 2022 in his 95th year.
Predeceased by his parents Maceo and Myrtle (Brown) Shreve, his wife Fern (Shadd) Shreve and his siblings Doris (Ernie) Richardson and LeRoy Shreve.

He is also survived by his son Bev (Betty Baker), grandsons Ryan (Susan), Cameron and Craig, great grandchildren Natalie, Clayton, Joshua, Bradley and Brad (Hailey) and one great-great-grand, Henry.
As a teen, taking his first job away from the home, he followed in his father’s footsteps working for the New York Central Railroad. Following that he operated for several years as an independent trucker with his advertising line, “we haul any load that fits the road”. When the Southwest Regional Centre opened he sold the trucks and got a job in the laundry where he became manager and remained there until his retirement.
Although rather reclusive in his later years those who remember the earlier version know that he
enjoyed life and loved to have a good time.
