Eugene "Gene" E. Feinauer

Our beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, and friend, Eugene “Gene” Edward Feinauer, passed away in the evening hours of Friday, December 29, 2023 at the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Age 92 years. Gene was born on February 3, 1931 in Saginaw, Michigan to the late Edward and Ella (Rauschert) Feinauer. He was a graduate of Arthur Hill High School. Following, Gene went on to proudly serve his country as a member of the United States Army; serving during the Korean War. Gene was a proud member of Korean War Vets Chapter 251. On September 17, 1955 inside of St. Andrew Catholic Church, Gene married the love of his life, Maureen Elaine Corcoran, and she preceded him in death on February 4, 2006. For over four decades, Gene worked as a Mason for the Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Local Union; he walked proudly telling the stories and pointing at the buildings he built in the tri-city area over the years. Gene was a devout member of Holy Spirit Catholic Church, founding member of the Freeland Boy Scout Troop 323, member of the Freeland Athletic Association, and 1986-1987 Freeland Citizen of the year. Gene spent countless hours volunteering at the Freeland Little League; building dugouts, concession stands, and coaching over the years. He was a lifetime member and longtime President of the Rabbit Breeders Association; Gene had over 47 years raising and showing rabbits. One of Gene’s favorite pastimes was following Indy Car Racing; he attended his first race in 1962 and his love passed on to his many other family members. With Gene’s many joys in life, his whole world revolved around his wife, Maureen; he loved her dearly until the day he passed.

 Left to cherish his memories are his four children, Mark Feinauer, Teri (Rich) Bueche, Timothy Feinauer, and Matthew Feinauer; seven grandchildren, Nathan Feinauer, Alicia (Pete) Sullivan, Matt (Wendy) Bueche, Nick Feinauer, Brian Feinauer; T.J.
