Eugene was bigger than life and truly enjoyed life to the fullest. He was an avid sportsman, enjoying many ski trips to Colorado with family and friends, helicopter skiing with his grandson Josh, motocross racing, and auto racing with his son Oren and others at the M1 race course. Eugene enjoyed scuba diving with his wife Ina.Eugene was always ready for the next adventure he loved to have fun and enjoyed doing so with his family and friends. He and his family traveled the world extensively.

He maintained a beautiful collection of European cars and motorcycles and enjoyed sharing his collection with friends and family. Eugene loved attending Pistons home games with his wife Ina or his daughter Claire. He never missed an opportunity to attend a rock concert with his daughter Claire, or an opera, play or musical with his wife Ina.

Eugene looked forward to Sunday motorcycle rides with the local chapter of the Chai riders. Those Sunday morning rides were special to him and he made many friends among the Chai riders. Every Sunday afternoon Eugene and Ina would visit their special-needs grandson Jordan who they love and adored. Eugene and Jordan had a very special relationship. Jordan loved his Saba with all his heart and would light up when Eugene walked into the room.

Eugene was very philanthropic. He and Ina supported the Friendship Circle, the FIDF, JARC, and Variety the Children’s Charity among many other charities. Eugene had a special connection with FIDF as a board member. He was a veteran of the Israel Defense forces armored core division as a tankcommander. He and wife Ina supported many students in the FIDF impact program allowing soldiers to obtain a college education. He often kept in touch with the soldiers that he and Ina supported.

Eugene was an astute business person. He founded Auto Electric International in the basement of his Oak Park home and built it into an international supplier of remanufactured starters and alternators to the automotive aftermarket. He was so proud when his son Oren joined the business and helped grow it even further.

Eugene was loved and adored by many. He was a bright star, with a big smile. He had a magnetic personality that was just irresistible. A true mensch, Eugene was loved by his family, friends, and employees and respected in his industry as a leader and visionary.
