SCHWEITZER, EUGENE
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of A. Eugene Schweitzer of Woodstock, NB on Sunday, October 11, 2015 at the Upper River Valley Hospital, surrounded by family.
Gene was born in Highgate, Ontario on September 17, 1931 and spent several years working in the banking industry in Toronto, Ottawa and various other locations in Ontario. It was during this time that he met and married his first wife, Shirley Hall. In 1982 they moved to Woodstock, NB and Gene began his career at Humpty Dumpty (Old Dutch) until his retirement in 1991. In 1987 he lost his wife Shirley.
In 1990 Gene met Ruth Grant and in 1994 they were married. They enjoyed several years of travelling until health issues made it too difficult. He loved gardening, coin collecting, playing the harmonica and time spent with his family, especially his wife Ruth.
Gene is survived by his wife Ruth, one son James (Marlene) Schweitzer of Toronto, Ontario, step-children Ross Grant, Calvin (Lois) Grant, Joyce (Byard) Smith all of Fredericton and Shirley (Sam) Galloway of Woodstock. He is also survived by several grandchildren, great-grandchildren and step-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
