Eugene 'Gene' LeDoux (2021) – Co-Founder, Past President 1959-1960, 1963
Gene LeDoux, one of our club's founders passed away this past Monday, November 15, 2021. Even though he was no longer active in the club, Gene still participated in our Past President's Advisory Group and, up until our forced Covid break, attended our annual Christmas Gala with his wife Susan. He could always be counted on to provide direction and guidance. He will be sorely missed. A Service was held on November 18 and, well Sue and the Family would have loved to have his many Corvette friends attend, unfortunately both Gene and Sue were impacted by Covid 19 and the family did not feel it would be right to risk any unnecessary exposure. They appreciate everyone's understanding.
Sue's message to RCC:
A Few Words
“And here’s Gene to say a few words,” the Club president would announce at each Christmas party. Gene’s words stopped on November 15 as Covid took his life.
I know how much Gene loved all of you and how proud he was of the Rochester Corvette Club. It was not just that the club grew from a handful of dedicated ‘Vette owners to over 700 folks who truly are the salt of the earth. He loved your generous spirit as you enjoyed everything Corvette, but still shared most generously with others. I know he would say, “Keep it up!” As I got to know many of you through Gene, I shared his love and respect for all of you and what you represent—the best of America.
Right now America is at war with a virus that does not care who you are or what you want. Over the last year, Gene’s battle with pain and other medical issues led him to spend most of his time in bed. The life he loved had become a cross. I was able to leave the house only when his caregiver was present (a saint if there ever was one!).
Despite being a homebody, I somehow managed to contract a light case of Covid. That’s how highly transmissible this virus is, even now when people, like Gene and I, are fully vaccinated. Fortunately, he was hospitalized and kept comfortable at RGH during his last seven days.
Because the Covid transmission rate in Monroe County is high and climbing, I made the difficult decision to hold a private funeral service. Nothing would have pleased me more than to share his Memorial Service with all of you, who have become my friends as you were his. But frankly I love you all too much.
I know he would agree with my decision because you were so close to his heart. Stay well to enjoy your Corvettes and most of all, the special fellowship you share.
Steve Finn (2021) – Past President 2006 and 2014
Steve Finn passed away Nov 12, 2021. He had one of those personalities that made you feel like a close friend even if you were meeting him for the first time. He and Margie always made you feel welcome and never alone at any event or activity.
Steve served as our President on two occasions and coordinated and participated in many club activities over the many years he was an active club member.
Steve's memorial was June 10, 2022, at King's Bend Park, Pittsford, NY.
