Eugene was born April 22, 1922 in Lyman, Nebraska to Elzie & Mabel Prickett. He was the fourth of six children. Eugene graduated from Lyman High School and attended Manhattan Bible College in Kansas before volunteering for the Army in 1945 where he was stationed in Occupied Japan. Eugene and his family moved to Idaho after the war where he met and married the love of his life, Mary Axtell, in 1948. He was the lead Motor Machinist for Caldwell Auto Supply for 38 years. Eugene and Mary raised their family in the Marble Front Community and were long-time members of the Caldwell Christian Church where he served as a teacher and elder. He also served on the Board of Directors at Boise Bible College. Eugene and Mary enjoyed traveling, playing cards, and spending time with family and friends. After retiring to their home in Caldwell, Eugene spent many enjoyable hours working on projects in his garage - there was nothing he wouldn't try to fix or improve.
Eugene and Mary were blessed with five children: Mary Jean (Larry) Brown, Renita (John) Ineck, Janet (Bruce) West, Ed (Betty) Prickett, & Lori (Bryan) Martindale. They have 13 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren, who have brought them much joy and laughter. Eugene is survived by all of these family members, his friend and brother-in-law, Leo Axtell, of Nampa, and many nieces and nephews, who were all deeply loved.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Caldwell Christian Church Stained Glass Fund.
