Eugene A Vis

August 19, 1924 — November 6, 2019

Eugene Abraham Vis departed life Wednesday November 6, 2019 at the age of 95. Born August 19, 1924 in Sheldon, Iowa he was the son of Rev. Jean Abraham Vis and his wife Bertha Van Kolken Vis. He graduated from Hope College in Holland, Michigan where he met his future wife Ruth Quant of Rochester, New York. The couple returned to Rochester where Eugene was employed by the Eastman Kodak Company. They retired to Keuka Lake. It was his great pleasure that he lived long enough to have been retired longer than he had worked. He was a man of many hobbies, including pyrotechnics [as an employee of Young Explosive Corporation], bee keeping and wood working. Among the furniture, toys and other decorative objects that were the fruits of his labor is a hand carved chess set gleefully created on “company time” while at Kodak. Visitation hours will be Tuesday November 12 at Weldon Funeral Home in Penn Yan from 11AM to 1PM, followed by interment. His wife Ruth predeceased him in 2005. He is survived by daughter Virginia Ruth Vis of Alexandria, Virginia.
