In memory of
Eugene H. Neuzil, 96 Army veteran, postal worker, former Staten Island resident Eugene H. Neuzil, 96, of Rossmoor in Monroe Township, N.J., died peacefully at his home on May 24, 2018. Mr. Neuzil, the son of Herman F. and Margaret Steele Neuzil, was born in Lynn, Mass., and graduated from Lynn English High School. He entered the Army in 1942, and, among other assignments, guarded German POWs and was training for the planned invasion of Japan when the war ended. While at Fort Wadsworth on Staten Island in 1942, he met Dolores Larsen and they married after a six-year courtship. Children, Christopher and Bonnie, were raised in Port Richmond, S.I., while Gene worked at postal facilities in St. George and Castleton Corners, S.I. Gene had a keen eye for photography, for example recording striking images of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge under construction, and avidly collected coins and stamps. After retiring in 1983, he and Dolores moved to Rossmoor. In his last years, particularly after Dolores' death in 2016, he was greatly comforted by Sukai Jowjobe's attentive and gracious care. He loved Yankees baseball and weekly poker with buddies, and remained a faithful supporter of charities related to vision, Native Americans, and veterans. Gene is survived, and greatly missed, by Chris and wife Sandy; Bonnie and husband Jose; grandchildren, Siri, Anna, Lauren, Claudia, and Gregory, and great-grandchildren, Max, Grace, Zella, Adeline, and Signe. In lieu of flowers, contributions to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital are welcomed. Lester Memorial Home 16 W. Church St. Jamesburg, N.J. 08831 732-521-0020
