In Memory of Eugene LeDuc

Gene LeDuc joined the Extended Families of Nebraska team two years ago as our Lead Administrative Assistant. He quickly moved up to the position of Office Manager, then switched gears and worked as our Assistant Day Service Coordinator. Gene was recently promoted to Day Services Coordinator in March. Gene excelled in each position and was truly dedicated to his job.

Gene had a passion for working with people with disabilities. He always went above and beyond to advocate for others and provide the best supports possible. Gene was kind, generous, hard working, and always had your back.

Gene was irreplaceable, and our team won’t be the same without him.You can find Gene's obituary, as well as information about services and memorials at the following link:
