A service celebrating his life will be held 10am Monday January 6th at Pecan Grove Funeral Home, 3124 Robinson Dr. Waco, with Ernest Christie officiating.

Eugene was a pitcher on the 1954 Baseball Team that won the Bi-District Championship. He worked at General Tire and Rubber Company for 30 years until health problems forced him to retire.

He was proceeded in death by his loving wife of 44 years, Patsy Oliver Kroll; brother, Eldon Kroll who was killed in World War II; brother, C.P. Kroll; sister, Laura Kroll Schroeder; and infant grandson, James Paul McGinty who died at birth.
