Gene Pyron Eubank went to be with the Lord in Heaven at 12:33 pm on Monday, April 15, 2019. He was at his home with family/friends when he crossed over...EXACTLY how he wanted it to happen.

He retired from USAA (United Services Automobile Association) in July 1992 after 16 years of dedicated employment. He was also employed by MIC (Motors Insurance Corporation) for numerous years prior to working at USAA.

Gene was a caring, loving & attentive husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, and longtime friend to many. He lived life to its fullest through simple pleasures spent with family and friends. He was an avid golfer, bowler, black-jack player and race horse owner. He loved the game of golf spending time with family and friends in the beauty of God’s outdoor majesty while enjoying the competition and great stories experienced during the game.

I’m Free
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard him call;
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day, 
To laugh, to love, to work and play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found that place at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void.
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared a laugh, a kiss;
Ah yes, these things, I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savoured much;
Good friends, good time, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seems all too brief;
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now,
He set me free
