Besides his parents, he is predeceased by his sister, Dorothy.   

He is survived by one brother, Larry Matte and his wife, Rosemary of Ticonderoga and one sister, Billie Mae Matte of Whitehall and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins in Vermont.

A funeral service was held earlier in the week at the Jillson Funeral Home, Inc., 46 Williams Street in Whitehall. Rev. Roberta Proper, Pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Whitehall, officiated.

            Expressions of sympathy may take the form of a donation in Eugene’s name to the Whitehall United Methodist Church, 56 Greenmount Cemetery Lane, Whitehall, NY 12887.
