Eugene L. “Gene” Herold, 74, of Piqua, passed away at 9:27 a.m. Wednesday, May 27, 2020 at the Hospice of Miami County inpatient unit. He was born August 16, 1945 in Mansfield to the late Peter A. and Marie M. (Kvocsik) Herold. He married Gwen G. (Gardner) Herold on March 3, 1973 in Piqua, and she survives. They were married for a wonderful 47 years.

Mr. Herold worked as a field service engineer for over 25 years. He was a faithful member of the Troy First United Methodist Church and loved his church family, particularly his Sunday school group. Gene loved to fish, especially from his bass boat out on the water, and spending time with family, who were most important to him.

A graveside service to honor his life will be held privately at Forest Hill Cemetery. Funeral arrangements are in care of Jamieson & Yannucci Funeral Home.
