EUGENE A. “CAPTAIN GENO” MAJNI age 60, beloved husband for 12 years of Mary Ann (nee Cotiangco); loving father of his canine son Joey Gene; cherished son of Mary Lee (nee McGraw) and the late Robert “Yukon Bob”; dearest brother of Heidi Milczewski (husband Tom) and Cliff Majni (wife Sheila); devoted uncle of Brandon Frusteri (wife Nicole), Dominic Frusteri (Ciara), Vincent Milczewski and Tayler, Branden and Logen Walsh; dear nephew, cousin, and friend of many.
Geno was born on January 22, 1961. He was born in Cleveland and raised in Macedonia. Geno graduated from Nordonia High School in 1979. He went to trade school for commercial art and worked for his fathers’ business (Expo Signs & Displays). Geno also served as a Youth Director at the Northfield Presbyterian church. Following his love for fishing, he moved to Port Clinton and ran his fishing charter boat (Rod Bender) on Lake Erie. Geno spent many summers with his nephews (Vincent, Brandon and Dominic) on the Rod Bender where he gave them the opportunity to be “first mate” which ultimately led them to share the same love for fishing. Geno and Mary Ann married and moved to Texas where he studied for his Captains’ license. This achievement named him “Master” of a Scientific Sea Vessel. He and his wife worked and traveled by sea to many countries, for months at a time. This is how he became known as “Captain Geno.” For the past 6 years, Geno and Mary Ann resided in Florida and lived right next door to his parents Robert and Mary Lee. Geno, alongside his devoted mother, took the selfless responsibilities in the caretaking of his sickly father Robert (Yukon Bob). Geno’s love for the open water and casting his rod, gave him “peace” during his downtime. He also enjoyed watching the Browns and hanging out with his best friend of 48 years, Randy Cotrill. He was an avid reader and spent countless hours studying God’s Word. Geno will be remembered most for his kind heart. He was selfless, funny, and never too busy to help a family member or friend in need. His glorious smile proved his happiness, and his eyes were the portal to his heart. Truly devoted to his faith and family, he will be missed Forevermore. #seeyousoon #didntseethisonecoming
