Obituary for Eugene Joseph Carney

Eugene Joseph Carney
Of Arlington Heights

Eugene Joseph Carney passed in peace on October 17 with family at his bedside. Eugene was born on September 2, 1931 and was the oldest of nine children. He was preceded in death by his parents Joseph and Kathleen, his sister, Kathleen (Kitty) Lesiowski and brothers, Thomas, John, and James Carney. He is survived by his sisters, Eileen (Carl) King, Dorothy Johnson, Betty (Louis) Rymarscuk, Mary (Robert) Hammerl and brother-in-law Vito Lesiowski and sister-in-law Gloria Carney.

He was a wonderful “Uncle Gene” who had a special relationship with each of his sixteen nieces and nephews. He was proud to be “Great-Uncle Gene” to 32 great-nieces and nephews. He was loved by all.

Gene served in the US Army during the Korean War and after he was discharged began his career at the O’Hare Branch of the US Post Office. After his retirement he enjoyed golf and travel. He was a sports fan and his number one favorite team was the “Fighting Irish” of Notre Dame, followed by the Chicago Cubs, Bears, and Sox. His favorite songs were the Notre Dame Victory March and Go Cubs Go.

A private service will be held at the Glueckert Funeral Home in Arlington Heights and burial at the All Saints Cemetery.

May he rest in peace and remain forever in our hearts.
