Mr. Eugene Lee Alton, Jr., 79, of Murray, passed away on Tuesday, November 15, 2022 at his home.

Mr. Alton was born on March 10, 1943 in New Concord, KY to the late Eugene and Hilda Williams Alton.  Gene proudly served his country in the United States Air Force.  He loved everything about nature and he spent his childhood exploring the woods with his lifelong friend, Jerry Love.  Gene and his loving wife, Kathy, spent many hours walking and enjoying the beauty of the outdoors as well as collecting antiques.  You'd often find Gene woodworking and whittling wood with his cherished pocket knife given to him by one of his grandsons.  Gene was a member of Hardin Baptist Church and in 2017 he was baptized by Ricky Cunningham at Jonathan Creek. This was a very special moment in his life as well as his family's life.  Mr. Alton loved life and never met a stranger but what he loved the most was spending time with his beloved family.  He will be missed by many. 

He is preceded in death by his parents.

Those left to cherish many wonderful memories include his loving wife of 57 years, Mrs. Kathy Alton of Murray; sons, Vincent Alton and wife, Jody of Midland, TX, Dustin Alton and wife, Erin of Murray; daughter, Laura Dugger of Fancy Farm; grandchildren, Timothy, Nathan and Tristan Tracy, Noah and Jonah Alton as well as Josh and Alexis Alton.  Also surviving are three great grandchildren, Micha, William and Riley Tracy.
