Eugene Monroe, one of the old-time gamblers of the west, who for some years has been working at different “soft drink” parlors of our city was taken to the Minors Hospital Tuesday and his condition is reported as quite serious. The history of his career would make interesting reading.

Eugene Earhart Monroe was born in Atchison, Kansas, October 12, 1868, and died at Miners Hospital, Park City, Saturday, April 9, 1927. "Gene" Monroe, as he was best known, came west about 1887. Much of his time has been spent in Park city, where he was well known for many years. Of late years he has been in very poor health and unable to do more than odd jobs to eke out a living.

The past month he failed very rapidly until it became necessary to remove him to the Miners Hospital April 6th. He lapsed into unconsciousness the following day from which he did not recover, dying at 6:30 a.m. Saturday, April 9th.

Funeral services were held Monday, April 11, 1927 at 2:00 p.m. U. S.
