Eugene Louis Lauby

May 6, 1941 — January 18, 2019

Eugene Louis Lauby, of Lexington passed away Friday, January 18, 2019 at his home in rural Lexington. Eugene Louis Lauby was born May 6th, 1941 in Lexington, Nebraska to Louis and Marie (Jolliffe) Lauby.  He was 77 years old. Eugene was baptized into the Catholic faith and was a life-long member of St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Lexington. After completing 8th grade from rural Country School District #37, he was blessed with the opportunity to attend St. Pat’s boarding school in Sidney, Nebraska.  After graduation he enrolled for 2 years of education at Creighton University in Omaha before he returned home to farm and raise cattle with his father, this is where Eugene stayed and lived until his death. Eugene was united in marriage on October 14th, 1967 to Bernadette Lockhorn in Ravenna, Nebraska.  A marriage of 51 years bound in faith, commitment, and love created their proudest achievements, their four sons Thomas, Philip, Stan and Aaron. Eugene was a participant in many different activities. Faith was important and he demonstrated this by dedicated service to his church as an usher and lector, member of the Parish Council, Legion of Mary, Cursillo, he taught CCD and was a Knights of Columbus member.  He was a school board president of the rural school his children attended District #15, and served on the rural fireboard. Eugene loved being active and participating in Darr Bridge softball and finding long lasting joy in the sport of tennis and watching his kids and grandkids play. Rarely was there a Labor Day tennis weekend that he missed.  He loved watching his sons participate and compete in their many local and school activities and therefore, he coached Little League Baseball, was involved with 4-H, and helped with the Boxing Organization. His parents, Louis and Marie and his sister, Margaret Cashman preceded him in death. He is survived by his wife of 51 years Bernadette, and his children: Thomas (Micki) Lauby of Lexington and their children, Caleb, Elizabeth and Faith; Philip (Lorinda) Lauby of Lexington, and their children, Baylee, Brody and Brylee; Stan (Shannon) Lauby of Prosper, Texas and their children, Gavyn and Tate; and Aaron (Shelia) Lauby of Fairmont and their children Isaiah and Amy; and two great-grandchildren, Sage and Cora, (Baylee's children).
