He was born in Lewiston on March 13, 1923 the son of the late Henry and Leone (Moors) Hooper. He grew up in the Turner area and attended local schools there.

Eugene was a member of the Winthrop Lodge Masons and was also a member of the IBEW local 567, the New England Sled Dog Club and the Maine Sled Dog Club.
He loved watching birds around his yard and home. He was also very passionate about sled dog racing and his trips to Rangeley for fishing and relaxing. All you had to say was "Rangeley" and he was on his way to the car.
