Eugene LeCorn was born in Santos, Florida, and moved to Gainesville from Ocala 27 years ago. He is the son of Quennie LeCorn. Eugene graduated from Belleview Santos High School in 1965. He was employed for the Marion County School board for 7 years. For 26 years, he worked as a maintenance supervisor at Santa Fe Community College's police academy, now called the Kirkpatrick Criminal Justice Institute.
Everyone who knew Eugene loved him and thought of him as a generous, kind man. At 54 years old, Eugene had worked hard his whole life and planned on retiring in a few years. He attended Calvary Baptist Church, Santos, Florida. Here are just a few of the nice things people said about him:
"He was witty -- fun to have a conversation with. He had a real warmth about him. He was just a good man," Louis Kalivoda, manages the academy
"He was the most humble person you could meet -- just very kind and gentle. He was so gracious." Nancy Nipper, co-worker
For the Husband I Always Dreamed Of
I always dreamed having a husband who would be open enough with me to trust me in everything and to share all his hopes and dreams, thought and fears...
I dreamed of a man who was strong enough to be gentle and self confident enough to be vulnerable. A man I could lean on who could lean on me too. A man who would love me as I love him for always.
All the things I always dreamed about came true the day I married you.
In Loving Memory,
The Plan of the Master
Not till loom is silent and the shuttles cease to fly,
shall God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why.
Daddy I will try to stay strong because I know that's what you would want.
I shall think of you every day until the Lord takes my hand and also shows me the way.
I will always be your Scoody.
Your smile was as bright as the sun. Your hear was as pure as gold.
Everything I am is because of you. It's that, that gets me through.
You were the best pop "E" in the world, the one person that was always there.
Now you're gone, and I know you would want me to move on.
I know you'll always be with me. I love you Pop "E"
A Prayer for Papa
Please bless our Papa. He's a real good friend of ours.
And even though he wasn't our age, we got along just fine.
He knew just how to make a day real special for us kids.
So thank you God for giving us the Papa that you did.
We Love You
T.J. and Jamerial
