Eugene was born to the late John Joseph and Lola May (Keffey) Berberich on January 23, 1938, at home in Wabash County, Illinois. He was a 1956 graduate of Mt. Carmel High School. In 1964, Eugene married Judith M. Dwyer at St. Joseph Church in Evansville, Indiana. To this union three children were born: Eric Berberich and his wife Luz, Greg Berberich, and Linda Berberich. Also surviving are grandchildren, Ronnie, Kenny, Bennett, Tristian, and Karlie Berberich; and a brother, Karl Berberich and his wife Dianna. Preceding Eugene in death were his parents and siblings Thelma Raber, Norman, John, and Richard Berberich
Eugene proudly served his country in the U.S. Marines. After his discharge from the Marines, he moved to Muncie, Indiana, where he worked at a rubber factory making tires. When his father died, he returned to Mt. Carmel to take over the family farm and continued farming until failing health prevented it. In his younger years Eugene enjoyed hunting and raising hogs and rabbits. Eugene’s greatest pleasure was his family. The grandchildren called him “Pampa” and he called them “his little buddies, Scooter and Karlie May.”
Memorials can be made to St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Envelopes will be available.
