Eugenio (Gene) Lueras

February 14, 1923 — March 2, 2024

Eugenio (Gene) Lueras, 101, beloved Grandfather, Spouse, Son, and Father was called to his eternal resting place on Saturday, March 2, 2024. He entered this world on February 14, 1923, in Corona, NM, born to Emiliano and Estefanita Lueras. He was preceded in death by his wife, Adelida Lueras; and son, Robert Bibiano. He is survived by his children, Ruben Bibiano, Rita Bibiano, Fred Lueras, and Geneva Aguilar; and his grandchildren, Dominic Gurule, David Bibiano, Alisha Martinez, Jonathan Bibiano, Roberta Bibiano, James Aguilar, Cruzita Aguilar, Janette Cardona, and Isabel Lueras.

Throughout his long life he achieved many things, but he was most proud of his service in the United States Army. During this time, he was assigned to the First Cavalry Division. He served in combat during WWII and the Korean war. Amongst other campaigns, his unit was a critical component in the famed Philippine campaign which was the turning point for Allied victory in the Pacific. For acts of heroism while in combat, he was awarded the Bronze Star. He was honorably discharged and retired after 20 years of selfless service.

Not one to sit still, following retirement from the military, Gene pursued a second career with Albuquerque Public Schools. After dedicating 20 years with APS, he retired to his home where Gene found comfort in the simple pleasures of life while living with his late wife Adelida (Ida) of 43+ years in Adobe Acres. His final years were filled with lighthearted days and time spent with family.

His whole family carries a part of his character inside their hearts and he will always be remembered for his love of laughter and never shying away from making those around him smile.
