Eugene Kuhn, passed away April 29, 2020 in Carmel, IN. He was born to Nicholas and Theresa Kuhn and became a lifelong resident of Schererville, IN. He attended Dyer High School, where he was a standout baseball player from 1946-1949, and was also a member of the Schererville traveling team.
After graduating high school, Eugene proudly served in the Korean War as a U.S Army Corporal in 1953-1954. He was an active member of the American Legion and worked as a school bus driver for the Lake Central School District for over 30 years.
When he wasn’t working he enjoyed photography, and being outside hunting, golfing, or gardening. He was a die-hard White Sox fan and loved the Indianapolis 500. He was known for his sense of humor and his talent for buying special (and sometimes crazy Christmas gifts for his family members).
Eugene is survived by his loving children: Kenneth (Lori Ormsby) Kuhn of Crystal Lake, IL, and Kathy (Ron) Kern of Fishers, IN; his treasured grandchildren: Brandon (Diane) Kern, Brooke (Ross) Horton, Brian Kern, Theresa (Pete Kissel) Kuhn, and Elizabeth (Patrick) Trainor; cherished great-grandchildren: Linus, Adelaide & Azelie Kern, Thomas & Jack Kissel, Paddy, Hank, Eileen and Holland Trainor; sister-in-law: Joan Kuss; seven dear nieces and nephews; and many friends.
He is preceded in death by his first wife, Ann; and his second wife, Margaret; his beloved son, Ronald; his parents; and siblings: James Kuhn, Barbara St. Martin and brother-in-law, Richard.
Eugene taught his children the value of hard work and to take pride and ownership of that hard work. He will be dearly missed and his legacy will be fondly remembered by all who knew and loved him.
