Eugene Alfonso, 65

October 12, 2014

After an impetuous battle with cancer, Eugene Alfonso died on October 12, 2014 in Lancaster, PA at the age of 65. He leaves behind his wife of 44 years, Carmelina Alfonso.
Gene was born in Manhattan, NY to the late Anthony Alfonso and mother Theresa (Grassi) Alfonso. Gene graduated from Wayne Valley High School in 1967 and married Carmelina in 1970. He worked for the Deluxe Corporation in New Jersey for 25 years. Upon his retirement, the couple moved to Lancaster to be closer to their only son and help care for their only grandson.
Gene was a generous and friendly gentleman. He enjoyed spending the winters in Fort Myers, FL relaxing by the pool. He looked forward to watching football on Sunday afternoons, especially when the New York Giants played. Gene loved the game of golf and certainly loved his dog, Charlie. He was a loyal fan and cheered for his grandson at numerous HAMS football and Hempfield lacrosse games. His positive support and enthusiasm will be missed.
Gene is survived by his wife Carmelina and son, Michael as well as daughter in law, Melissa and grandson, MJ; his mother Theresa (Grassi) Alfonso; his brother, Dennis Alfonso, husband of Joan Christine and their family, Erica and Stefanie.
The family would like to thank the staff of LGH and the Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute for their attentive treatment and sincere compassion for the family. They would also like to thank their friends and family for the love and support during this time.
A Memorial Service is planned for the spring.

Dear Mike and family,
    Steve and I just heard of your dear dad’s passing. We somehow hadn’t heard until today.  We remember your dad well from all of the games — lacrosse and midget football.  We send our sincere sympathies to you and yours.
  Love,
  Chris and Steve Blair

We are so sorry to hear about Gene’s passing.  What a great Guy!  We always enjoyed and looked forward to seeing he and Carmen at Football and LaCrosse games. A class act – always cheerful and helpful, a pleasure to be around, and a dedicated family man who will certainly be missed.

My condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one, Eugene.  May your fine memories of him bring you comfort. It is my hope that Jehovah God’s promise found in the Bible book of Acts 24:15 where we are assured that “there is going to be a resurrection” bring you peace.  W. Alston
