Eugene Paul Drabinski Obituary

November 28, 1944 - December 20, 2015 Eugene Paul Drabinski passed away on December 20, 2015. You've never met a more hilarious, loving, or generous soul. Gene loved his family, the Dodgers, & the wilderness. Usually in that order. A Los Angeles native, he was an infantryman, then officer, who returned from Vietnam a committed peace activist. He could run & bike forever. He could tell you stories forever. He could laugh forever. Gene would often do all three in one day, so you had to have a lot of stamina when visiting. He took up so much of the world's love. And he gave it right back. He is survived by his wife Candace; son John Erwin, daughter-in-law Marisa Parham, grandsons Miles Henry and Satchel Bee; daughter Kathryn Summer, daughter-in-law Nicole Stanovsky; daughter Emily Ann, daughter-in-law Karen Miller, grandson Oscar; daughter Hannah Rose; and his siblings & their families: Mary (Tony) Schmitz, Eileen Drabinski (Jan Vallotton), Jim (Sue) Drabinski, Joe (Anne) Drabinski, Kevin (Anne Marie) Drabinski, Patrick (Wendy) Drabinski. Services to be scheduled at a later date.
