Eugene Rosebaugh

Eugene E. “Gene” Rosebaugh, 95, Barnes, died Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017, at his home. Gene was born Nov. 1, 1922, on the family farm north of Barnes, to Richard E. and Alma A. (Cammel) Rosebaugh. He attended Barnes High School until he was 17 when he left school to join the US Navy during World War II. During his service he survived having two different ships sunk beneath him. After the war he returned to Barnes where he married Betty L. Beem. They married on April 6, 1946 at Marysville. Many times you would find Gene on a river bank or surrounded by family sharing those fish stories. He shared stories of his early years swimming with sharks and times the big one that got away. But more often about the fish that were brought home for the fish fry of which his own special ingredients were used. Many would come from miles around to share in this annual event. Stories were shared late into the evening. Generations of artful storytellers have been created through this one man.
