In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Crestview Church of Christ community care fund.

The family also wishes to thank the nurses and caretakers of Providence Hospice.

Since there is not a map to the Antioch Cemetery the best direction to the graveside service for Eugene Minton would be to head north of San Agustine , Texas to Hwy 147. Cemetery is 5 miles from San Agustine
