Eugene always enjoyed painting, and was treasurer of the Hidalgo County Watercolor Society. He described himself a student of the Happy Accident School of Art but was actually quite an accomplished artist and his children and grandchildren proudly display his beautiful artwork in their homes. His paintings will be cherished reminders of his love of life and the joy he brought to his family.
