Eugene Papow Obituary

Eugene Papow

Pinckney, Michigan

His Legacy… Eugene Papow, 71, passed away on January 15, 2024. He was born on November 16, 1952, in Detroit, Michigan, to Eugene and Leona (Kratofil) Papow. Eugene married the love of his life, Diana McKinnon, on January 03, 1977, in Dearborn, Michigan. Eugene will be remembered as a gregarious man who treated all those he met with compassion and respect. His talent and skill for all things handiwork first came into its own with the purchase and remodeling of his first home at 19. Eugene carried this passion for construction throughout his life, constructing and living in each of his five houses. He also enjoyed artistic work, using his creative talents to create many murals on the side of cars and motorcycles. Eugene was so good at what he did that he wouldn’t stop getting calls to do more side work. To address this, Eugene started his own company, Drywall Finishing Company. He had many employees through this company, each of whom he happily shared his extensive knowledge, teaching them all he knew. Aside from his work, Eugene loved all kinds of activities on Portage Lake; fishing, water skiing, swimming, and diving. Above all, Eugene valued his faith in Jesus. His family and friends adored Eugene, and he will be deeply missed.

His Family… Eugene will be missed by his loving wife, Diana Papow; his children, Michael Papow and Chad Papow; siblings, Sue Papow, Karen McKnight, Mark Papow, Ronny Papow, and Tommy Papow; and his grandchild. Emma Papow, and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his loving parents, Eugene and Leona Papow.
