Obituary for Anthony Eugene Hurm

August 21, 1936 - February 3, 2020
Owensboro, Kentucky | Age 83


Anthony Eugene Hurm, 83, of Owensboro, passed away Monday, February 3, 2020 at his home following years of illnesses that included Alzheimer's Disease. He was born in Daviess County to the late Hubert D. and Corine A. Ralph Hurm.

Mr. Hurm served in the Army National Guard and was honorably discharged in 1961. He was a member of Blessed Mother Catholic Church.

Eugene was a hard worker who spent most of his career as a maintenance supervisor. He retired from O.M.U. after fifteen years of service, but he had also worked at Barmet and spent twenty-five years at Kelly-Wilmore. His work wasn't limited to his regular day job. He was also a builder, farmer and mechanic who continued to mow grass until about a year ago. He particularly enjoyed working on tractors. Eugene still managed to spend time fishing, hunting, camping at Diamond Lake, and watching NASCAR and U.K. Basketball. One of his greatest joys was spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, which often included time cruisin' in the golf cart.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by sisters, Martha Rysdyk, Esther Craig and infant Elizabeth Ann.

Eugene is survived by his wife of sixty-three years, Mary Hurm; children, Sheila McCollam, Randy Hurm (Lesa), Wayne Hurm, all of Owensboro, and Becky Dunn (Curtis) of Evansville; eighteen grandchildren, nineteen great-grandchildren; siblings, Barbara Schell, Ella Meyer and Hubert D. Hurm, all of Owensboro; and many nieces and nephews.
