Eugene G. Hornberger passed away May 22, 2017, at Martha Jefferson Hospital in view of the beautiful mountains like those he grew up with in Pennsylvania.

Eugene lived life to its fullest and was a strong man, in many ways! He traveled the world, he led the Welding Competition for Skills USA for 40 years. He was a member of MENSA, a gourmet chef, a talented painter and wood carver, he sailed his 30 foot Catalina around the Chesapeake Bay, and worked on that old 29 Chevy for 60 years! He leaves behind his wife of 59 years, Mildred Hornberger; his sons, Keith Hornberger and Michael Hornberger; his daughter, Patricia Robinette, 7 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church Chapel in Charlottesville on Saturday, June 17, 2017, at 1 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Operation Smile and the Alzheimer's Association.
