Eugene Tompkins

1958 - 2024


Eugene M. Tompkins, age 65 of Hughsonville, NY passed away at home on January 13, 2024, after a very sudden decline in his health. He was born in Poughkeepsie, NY on June 9, 1958, the son of the late Daniel Tompkins and Helen Darrigan. Eugene graduated from Roy C. Ketcham High School. He then pursued a career in construction and contracting before working for Wappingers Central School District. Eugene met the love of his life, Judy (Zehnbauer) in 1975 at Roy C. Ketcham. The two married on August 1, 1987 in Wappingers Falls NY. They were together for 48 years and married for 36 years. Eugene and Judy went on to have one daughter, Elizabeth. Elizabeth married Jeffrey Sinclair Jr. and they have two daughters: Penelope and Ryleigh. Eugene’s grandchildren meant the world to him. You could often find Eugene bringing special treats to his granddaughters (and granddog). Eugene had a soft spot for animals, treating them like family and spoiling them. He had several cats and dogs throughout his life. Eugene loved music, gardening, cooking for others, watching football, visiting the ocean, and working with his hands. Eugene will always be remembered for his heart of gold and his sense of humor. He was generous and always wanted to help others. He was a wonderful friend, husband, father, and grandfather. We will miss Eugene every day. His memory will live on in the hearts of all those who knew him. Eugene was preceded in death by his sister, Vicki Tompkins and his twin brother, Jeffrey Tompkins. He is survived by his wife Judy, his daughter Elizabeth (Jeffrey Sinclair), his granddaughters Penelope and Ryleigh, his brother Gary Tompkins (and wife Christine), as well as several nieces and nephews. Calling hours for Eugene will be held on Friday January 19, 2024 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at Delehanty Funeral Home, 64 East Main Street, Wappingers Falls, NY. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Compassionate Animal Rescue Efforts of Dutchess County (CARE of DC – P.O. Box 4 – Wappingers Falls, NY 12590).
