Eugene “Gene” McEwen, 76, of Haines, died Tuesday, October 20, 2020 at home surrounded by his family. As per his request, there will be no funeral service.
“When we remember our dad, we envision the warm sun on his face, a cool breeze off the lake, and a fishing line in the water. The steady hum of the wood lathe machine and the wood chips in the air, as he created art out of wood. A strong, steady voice, a soft flannel shirt and a warm heart. These are just a few things that remind us of who Gene McEwen was. Words cannot encompass all that he embodied or the lives he enriched during his journey through life. He will be remembered, treasured, loved, and missed”.
Gene is survived by his son Ty McEwen of Phoenix, Arizona; daughter Kat (Ely) Myers of Baker City, Oregon; grandsons Jake and Gavin Myers.
