Obituary of Eugene LoIacono
Eugene J. LoIacono, of East Stroudsburg, formerly of Lodi, NJ, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family in Lake Hopatcong on Monday, May 15, 2017. He was 84 years young.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY to the late Joseph and Rose LoIacono, Eugene settled down in Lodi, NJ in 1955 with his wife, the late Catherine, to raise their family. A proud veteran of the United States Army, he served in the Korean War in the 82nd Airborne Unit. Eugene enjoyed woodworking projects. He worked for over 40 years at Bridge Casket Company in Lodi, which was bought by Batesville Casket Company. Eugene also loved bowling and taking long rides on his motorcycle. He relished traveling, as long as his motorcycle could take him where he needed to go. Above anything else, family was his number one priority. He was a phenomenal son, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, and friend. Eugene has left us with a legacy of compassion, hard work, and laughter that will live on in our hearts and souls for an eternity.
