Obituary: Eugene “Gene” Kuhler

Brentwood-Oak Hills NA Past President, Gene Kuhler, passes

It is with great sadness that I report the news that Gene Kuhler died about 3:30 p.m., Sunday, June 11. He had been at a rehab facility for a few weeks, (for strength and balance exercises) came home last week, took a rapid downturn, and hospice services were engaged Friday evening. He died at home, surrounded by his wife and family.
Gene was President of the Brentwood-Oak Hills Neighborhood (BOHN) Association for 4 years from July 2009 through June 2013, and he volunteered as a BOHN COP from 2003-2015, attended the Code Blue meetings and CAC meetings held at the HM Rec Center.
Gene also served faithfully on the Fort Worth League of Neighborhood Associations during some of those years when he was BOHN president, never missing a monthly board or quarterly general meeting of the League.
Gene was the BOHN team leader for the Cowtown Cleanup, and in his daily walks with his dog, picked up trash on his street.
Tobi Jackson sent in this picture of Gene from a recent Eastern Hills High School game. The five Kuhler children attended EHHS, & Gene loved Football.
Gene will be dearly missed by his neighbors and many friends.
