Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Eugene (Geno) Canfield, age 39, of Old Forge, passed away Thursday morning. He is survived by his children – his world, Eugene (Gene) Jacob and Ryann Noel Canfield.
Born on April 16, 1979, Geno was the son of Jean Mikels Canfield of Old Forge and Geno Canfield, Sr. and fiance Lynda Gogas of Bridgeport, CT. A graduate of Old Forge High School, Class of 1997, he worked for D.H.M. Construction.
An outdoorsman who enjoyed quading and hunting, Geno had an amazing sense of humor, an infectious smile and the knack for making a friend at the instance he met someone. He was also a die-hard fan of both Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverine football. He adored his family and every minute spent with them.
Above all was his love for children. If he leaves behind anything at all, it would be the message to his son and daughter that their Daddy truly loved them. Geno will forever be missed.
He is also survived by his siblings, Dana Canfield Rinaldi and fiance Edward May, Jr., of Old Forge and Jon Canfield and wife Stacey of Taylor; his former wife, Nancy Wood of Avoca; and countless adoring aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Geno’s life will be celebrated by family and friends on Saturday, January 5th, between 11:00AM and 1:00PM at Cafe Rinaldi, 426 S. Main St., Old Forge. A blessing service will be at 1:00PM.
Arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home Inc., 517 N. Main St., Old Forge.
