Stained Glass Emblem

Eugene Raymond Suda, age 80 of Warren, died Sunday, June 17, 2018 at Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital, Madison Heights Campus in Madison Heights, Michigan.

He was born February 16, 1938 in Detroit, son of the late John and the late Mary (nee: Kotarski) Suda.

Eugene was a good man who loved his family and possessed a genuine care and compassion, all of which was generated by his deep and abiding faith. A devout Catholic, Eugene had the heart of a servant that touched countless lives in his journey through life. Perhaps some of his greatest benefactors were the surrounding neighbors who he watched over and would help with many of the little things. Whether it was Eugene's help with snow removal, taking the garbage cans in, or any number of other meaningful tasks, their appreciation ran deep,…as did his unselfish care.

Eugene was also known for his hard work ethics and a desire to see a job to its finish. Not simply by meeting a deadline, but by infusing each effort with the utmost in dedication and excellence. Doing a job right and succinctly meant crossing all the "T's" and dotting all the "I's"…and Eugene never wavered from that principle. On his desk is a sign that reads; "Perfection is good enough"…which was often his source of motivation.

Those hard work ethics also played a large part in how Eugene cared for his homestead, both inside and out. From a lawn that was well-trimmed and beautifully landscaped, to the inside of his house that was always neat as a pin, Eugene's home was a perfect reflection of the man everyone knew him to be.

Like most guys, he loved to eat and enjoy a good meal. But Eugene took the eating experience to a bit of a different level by starting things off with an aperitif. Indulging in a shot before dinner helped to ignite the flame of his culinary passions, so he always had a bottle on hand of either Kessler's Whiskey or Blackberry Brandy to light the way.

Never being married, Eugene poured his heart into his extended family and was truly a cherished uncle. From one of his nephews comes the following; "I'd like to think that when the fog of death has cleared, he finds himself standing at the home on Gallagher & Davison. Busia has all four burners going and an oven full of goodies. His brother's are enjoying a smoke and having drinks. His father and Pa Szymanski are sitting on the porch swapping lies and his sister, Ginger comes to him with a welcoming hug and kiss."

Eugene enjoyed a full life that was filled with loved ones and friends with whom he shared memorable moments together, making memories to last a lifetime. He will be missed immensely, but fondly remembered with each reflection that brings him close again. May he rest in peace,…"thank you, Jesus!"

Eugene was the beloved son of the late John and Mary (nee: Kotarski) Suda. Dear brother of Lillian Rothchild, and preceded in death by siblings Tom, Frank, John, and Clara. Loving uncle of 11, three of whom preceded him in death.
