Tarpy, Eugene E., Age 76, April 25, 2020. Beloved husband of Margaret (nee Maule). Beloved father of Christopher (Leslie), Stacy Druding (Dan); grandfather of McKayla, Miles and Mason.

Gene worked at the Philadelphia Navy Yard and the United State Mint. He was a proud Vietnam Veteran. He was a dapper dresser, loved to wear hats, loved flowers and his vegetable garden and dancing, but especially the Philadelphia Eagles. In his younger years he loved skiing and traveled throughout Europe pursuing that sport. His favorite pastime was walking his dogs in the park, and he always had treats in his pocket for the dogs he met. He will be sadly missed by many friends and family members.

There will be a Memorial Service and inurnment at Washington Crossing National Cemetery when circumstances surrounding the health crisis allow.
