Eugene deVischEybergen, 90, passed
away peacefully with his wife by his side on Wednesday, March 2, 2016 at VNA
Hospice Center in Evansville.
Eugene was born in Pasirpadang, Indonesia on May 24, 1925 to the late Eugene and Nimsi deVischEybergen.
At the age of 14, Eugene was captured from his home in
Indonesia and imprisoned in a Japanese concentration camp where he remained a
prisoner for five years. Upon his release he fled to his father's native
country of the Netherlands where he continued his education, became a proud
member of the Royal Dutch Army, married and had four children. Eugene loved the
martial arts and became a 4th degree black belt in judo and shared his love and
skills with the children he trained. He immigrated to the United States in
1964, married Linda Tichenor nee Racine and
eventually retired from a long career at Glidden in 1991.
Eugene is survived by his beloved wife of 33 years, Linda;
his children, Eugenia (Alan) Mindlin of Naperville,
Ill., James, Anne Marie and Eugene of Daytona Beach, Fla.; stepchildren, Daniel
(Lynn) Tichenor of Cincinnati, Ohio and Melinda
(Nick) Miketinac of St. John, Ind.; grandchildren,
Gabrielle, Alysia, Ryan, Cassandra, Gianna and Nicholas; great-grandchildren,
Avery and Alannah; several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, and sister Henretta.
Our family wishes to thank the caring staff at DaVita
Dialysis Center of Princeton, Ind., who became our second family over the
course of his treatments, and also the nurses at VNA Hospice for their kindness
and compassion during such a difficult time.
We will have a Celebration of Eugene's life at a later time. Holder’s Funeral Home,Owensville, IN.
