December 24, 1933 – April 20, 2021
It is with sad hearts we announce the passing of Eugene Yusishen, age 87, on April 20, 2021. Geno was born on December 24, 1933 to Jack and Rose Yusishen.

He has 2 sisters Lillian and Betty, 2 children Bryan (Barb) and Tim (Diane), 7 grandchildren: Ryan, Jenna (Richard), Krystina (Justin), Taylor, Kiefer, Ricky, Carson, and 4 great grandchildren: Grace, Corbin, Jordyn, Sydney.
After 31 years with the Post Office at the age of 57, he and Rose spent the winter months of the next 20 years at their Texas home.
