Eugene Sunday was born in Galveston, Texas on December 1, 1949.

From his early childhood he suffered with severe dyslexia and eventually overcame his disability to teach himself a wide variety of things, amongst them was the intricate knowledge of military and commercial radar systems and of their importance to the commercial airline industry. He was also self taught in the operation and repair of radio communication systems.

Eugene served in the United States Army and he was a veteran of the Vietnam war.

He returned to South Vietnam after he was honorably discharged from the service and worked as a communications specialist in the presidential palace, in what was then Saigon, the capital of South Vietnam. Shortly before the North Vietnamese victory on April 30, 1975, Eugene left South Vietnam.

After leaving South Vietnam he worked in several southeast Asian and African countries as a radar technician.

Eugene went to work for the Federal Aviation Administration (F.A.A.) in 1989. He retired from the F.A.A. in late 2011.

He lived in Lusk, Wyoming for over ten years while working at radar sites throughout the state of Wyoming and Colorado.

He is survived by a brother (Ira), sister (Macie), son (Tony) and daughter (Linda).

Cremation was performed by the Neptune Society of Tucson, Arizona.
