Eugene Aloysius Cahill Jr., 59, passed away August 12, 2014 after fighting a long battle with metastatic melanoma. Born on February 17, 1955 in Portsmouth, VA to Eugene A. Cahill Sr. and his wife, Mary Ann, Gene lived across the country as a Navy brat. While he lived in Key West, FL and San Diego, CA, Gene called Virginia Beach his hometown where he attended Kellam High School and worked as a maintenance supervisor for Dominion Terminal Association.
Throughout his life, Gene enjoyed fishing, loved to cook, cared for animals, especially his beloved cat, Pepper and had a passion for cars. When he was not tinkering on a car or putting his exceptional handyman skills to task, he could be found relaxing in front of the television watching his Washington Redskins, Baltimore Orioles, or one of his favorite crime-dramas.
His father, Eugene A. Cahill Sr., precedes Gene in death. He is survived by his mother, Mary Ann Cahill; brother, Timothy Cahill and his wife, Sandy; sister, Bernadette Cahill, sister, Alexis Doughtie and her husband, Mike, and nieces, Sarah Doughtie, Kelly Cahill and Kristin De Guzman.
The family will received friends at Smith and Williams Funeral Home Kempsville, 4889 Princess Anne Road, Virginia Beach, VA 23462 from 11am to 12pm, August 16, 2014. The funeral will be conducted afterward at 12pm in the funeral home chapel by Father Timothy Kuhneman. A reception will follow the service at the home of Mike and Alexis Doughtie. A graveside service will take place on 1pm on Monday, August 18th, 2014 at Olive Branch Cemetery, Portsmouth, VA.
