Eugene "Gene" Otto Bergmann, 84, of Maryland Heights, MO. Asleep in Jesus Tuesday, May 31, 2017. Gene is preceded in death by his parents, John and Mary (nee Happel) Bergmann and siblings, William "Bill", Otto, Rose, Henry, Helen, Emil, Elsie, Charles, and 4 children in infancy.
He is survived by his loving nieces and nephews, Jackie (Ray) Bopp, Michael (Laura) Stupperich, David Stupperich, Carolyn (the late Tom) Huebbe, Marilyn (Leonard) Guarino, Paul Stupperich (Rita Wagner), Mark (Trudy) Stupperich, Jim (Lisa) Bergmann, Steve (Laura) Lucido, Mike (Chris) Bergmann, Andy Stupperich, Greg (Kris) Lucido, and Chris Lucido (Michael Craig); many great nieces and nephews; an extended church family and friends.
Gene was a faithful member of Zion Lutheran Church in Maryland Heights where he ushered and gave freely of his time and talents to support God's work. Gene was a daily listener to KFUO as his family and friends will attest. He was a boy scout, a high school basketball standout for Union (Missouri) High School, and veteran of the US Army. Though he had no children of his own, Gene and his brothers were very close to the children of his siblings. His nieces and nephews fondly remember more than 60 years of Christmas Eves at Gene's and spending time at the country home with memories of hayrides and apple butter. Gene was a true outdoorsman who loved to hunt and fish and collect arrowheads. His travels included Canada, Alaska, and the western US-anywhere where he could enjoy all that nature had to offer. He also enjoyed gardening and playing cards with family and friends. He was a loving and compassionate man who will be missed.
