The family request that everyone planning to attend the visitation and/or funeral service, to please comply with the County Mandate Order of wearing a mask or facial covering and to also comply with the CDC guidelines of social distancing.

Eugene was born February 27, 1940 in Williamson County. He attended West High School where he helped lead the boys’ basketball team to their best regular season record in the school history, earning a place in the 1959/1960 regional tournament. Sometime thereafter, he left school and began working to support his family after the death of his mother. At some point, through mutual friends, Herbert Eugene Pack met Linda Joyce Clement. They must have been smitten as they soon were engaged and were married September 14, 1963 and would celebrate their 57th wedding anniversary this year. He worked for local food service and trucking companies including Kraft and Sysco. By working many hours, he supported his wife and family, that he loved so much and that he always wanted to have the best possible. Eugene and Linda raised three children together, Angela, born in 1969, Eric, born in 1971, and Stephanie, born in 1974. All three children married later in life and they were then blessed with 3 grandchildren, Ashlea, Amber, and Autumn, and then by 2 great grandchildren: Gabriel and Lily. Family brought great joy and spending time with family was one of the most important things to Eugene and Linda. They often opened their home for cookouts, celebrations, and weekly dinners. Eugene led his family spiritually and made sure that they were part of a church and provided an example of seeking God, reading the Bible, and looking towards God in all situations. He was a man of great integrity, great character, and great love for his family and friends. Eugene will be forever missed but his family is grateful for God’s promises and they find comfort that his resting place is in heaven where he has been reunited with his family, loved ones, and where they will each see him again.

He is survived by his wife: Linda Clement Pack of Greenbrier, son and daughter-in-law: Eric and Bethany Pack of Bethpage, daughters and sons-in-law: Angela and Ron Smiley of Greenbrier, Stephanie and Jim Kilgore of Nashville, by his grandchildren: Ashlea (Colton) Crain, Amber (Darin) Kendall, and Autumn Smiley, by his great grandchildren: Gabriel and Lily Prosser, and by his nephew: David Beard.
