It is with great sorrow that the family of Eugene A. Sheridan Jr. announce his passing on October 24,2020 after a prolonged struggle with cancer. He was 79 years old.

Gene was born in White Plains, New York on Easter Sunday April 13th 1941. The son of immigrant parents from Ireland, Gene inherited his love of art and beauty from his mother Jean, an artist, and an incredible sense of humor and industry from his father, Eugene Sr.

He grew up in Chappaqua, NY and since an early age, Gene loved to travel and loved foreign languages, especially Spanish. He had an excellent singing voice and during his high school years at Archbishop Stepinac High School White Plains, NY performed in a production of “Oklahoma”. It was one of his fondest memories, and as he would like to say of his acting career: “I coulda’ been a contenda’!”

He attended Providence College graduating in 1963 and pursing his passion for history, graduated with a Masters degree from Villanova University in 1965. Always intellectually curious, Gene
continued his post graduate studies at New York University, within reach of a doctoral degree.

Gene served his country as a U.S. Army Captain during the Vietnam War and after a brief stint as a teacher in Brooklyn, NY joined his father’s Real Estate business in Chappaqua, NY.

His first marriage, to Patricia Connell ended in divorce in 1978 after which Gene became active in the local chapter of SDRC, Separated, Divorced and Remarried Catholics.

A man of great spiritual faith, it was at these meetings that Gene would meet the love of his life, Carmela Turco. After an eight-year courtship, they married in 1986 settling in Briarcliff Manor, NY. Gene worked as a social worker with adolescents and seniors for 20 years. In 1999 together with his partner Carmela they created and owned the Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast in Salisbury Mills, NY. They also enjoyed travelling together extensively throughout the US, Mexico and Europe.

After retiring to beautiful Cape Cod in 2011, Gene enjoyed the Cape Symphony, fine dining,
reading and continuing his historical research. His most recent subject, the life and work of the artist Alonso Wells. Gene was a member of Saint Mary Magdala Ecumenical Church and was a loyal supporter of numerous charities. The memory of his gentle smile will forever warm our hearts.

Gene is survived by his wife of 34 years, Carmela, his son David Sheridan of Michigan, his sister, Sr. Patricia Sheridan, RDC of White Plains, NY, his step children John
Corbo of NY, NY (predeceased), Susan Corbo of Dennis, MA, Andrew Corbo of NY, NY, and his granddaughter Isabella Corbo NY, NY. viewing will take place at Hallett Funeral Home from 3-5 Friday October 30th. The family will receive friends on Sunday November 1st at the Beecher Flooks Funeral Home from 2PM – 5 PM. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday November 2nd at 11:00 AM at the Chapel of the Divine Compassion 52 N. Broadway in White Plains.
