Obituary of Eugene A. Dubonnet X
Eugene “Moose” A. Dubonnet X, age 61, of Rome, passed away peacefully on January 27, 2021, at Bassett Medical Center in Cooperstown, NY.
Moose was born in Gloversville, NY on November 12, 1959 to Eugene A. IX and Ednamae Christman Dubonnet. He attended school in Rome and graduated from Cobleskill High School. On February 21, 1981, he was united in marriage to the former Andrea Schaller. He worked at Revere Copper Products as a Master Electrician.
Moose was a jack of all trades kind of man. He was a gymnast in school and was even a backup for the Olympic team. He was a hard worker but had a soft spot for cats. He loved fishing, sci-fi movies, traveling, especially to Jamaica, and going to concerts, which in his lifetime he had seen over 100 of them. He especially loved seeing Bush and Five Finger Death Punch with his wife, Andrea. He played bass guitar in several bands and had a deep love for music. His prized fish was a 46” Northern Pike that he had mounted and named Fred. He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather and his family was his world.
Eugene is survived by his loving wife, Andrea; his parents; three daughters, Michelle (Bill) Verro, Reneé (Frank Enos) Dubonnet, and Corrine (Dominick) Favata; a son, Eugene “Geno” (Annette Casadei) Dubonet XI all of Rome; grandchildren, Billy, Kaylie, Frankie, Hollie, Jordan, Livi, Julieann, Alessia, and Adrienne; three sisters, Thaya (Todd) Pekola, Maureen (Kent) Costa, and Andrea (John) Battle; a sister in law, Joanne (Gordy) Reese; a brother in law, Gerry (Kathy) Schaller; his feline companions, Spooky, Totes, Nicky Six, and Tiger; several nieces, nephews, and cousins; and many good friends.
