Eugene A. "Gene" Leopardi Obituary
Eugene "Gene" A. Leopardi

AGE: 54 • Carney's Point

Eugene "Gene" A. Leopardi, Jr., 54, currently of Carneys Point passed away at home on December 10,

2016. Born in Chester, PA, he was the son of Eugene Sr. and Kathleen (nee Johnson) Leopardi. Gene grew

up in Washington Township, N.J. He proudly served his country in the United States Navy on the USS

Peterson from 1979-1981. Gene was a talented carpenter, mason, and cook. He enjoyed creating beautiful

woodworking gifts and gourmet meals for family and friends, when he was not building or renovating homes. Most recently, Gene worked for Quantum Renovations in Runnemede with prior employment by Woodin, Wentling and Associates Incorporated, as Project Manager for the Villages of Old Landing in Rehoboth

Beach, Delaware. His natural aptitude for cooking led to his employment in the restaurant industry and earned him the title of executive chef at Air Transport Command. He was an excellent craftsman, avid football fan, fisherman, boater, and concertgoer; Bruce Springsteen and Phil Collins were his favorites.

Gene is survived by his mother Kathleen Leopardi; his siblings John Sr. (Robin), Lori (Konrad); and Kathi (Mark) his nieces and nephews Nicole (Daniel), John Jr. (LeAnne) and Matthew (Alicia), Kaitlynn, Samantha, Vincent, and Stella. He was predeceased by his father. The family would like to give a special thank you to the staff at the Veterans Administration and VA Medical Center for their dedication and professionalism in caring for Gene. A service will be held on Tuesday, December 27, 2016 at 2 PM at the Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 2465 Chesapeake City Road, Bear, DE 19701. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Gene's memory to the Home of the Brave, Attn. Jessica Finan, 6632 Sharps Road, Milford, DE
