Eugene was born January 22, 1936, in Youngstown, Ohio, to Willie and Addie McMullen.
Eugene "Geno" was a graduate of South High School, and Bluffton College. He played several sports, football, track & field, swimming and fencing. He was known for his uncanny ability to stay underwater longer than usual and known as a swim legend. Geno spent many years helping the community as a licensed social worker, retiring once from Ohio BVR, then again from D&E clinic.
He leaves to cherish in his memory, a son, Jamie McMullen of New Smyrna Beach, Florida: a daughter, Jennifer McMullen of Youngstown, Ohio: two grandchildren, Hope Williams and J’Lynn Poole: and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents: wife, Mary McMullen, two sisters, Ethel Hollinger and Willa Mae Cole and a brother, Herman McMullen.
