Eugene E. Iozzino

Eugene E. Iozzino, 90, of Ormond Beach, passed away peacefully with his family at his side on April 27, 2017. His beloved wife Elsie (Ramsey) preceded him in death after 52 years of marriage.

Gene was born January 22, 1927 in Brooklyn, NY, the son of Eugene J. and Regina Parlo Iozzino. He attended the prestigious Stuyvesant High School in New York City. A World War II veteran, after graduation, he joined the U.S. Army where he completed parachute training and was assigned to the 307th Airborne Engineering Battalion. Following his honorable discharge from the Army in 1946, he attended the New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering on the GI Bill, where he earned his degree in Electrical Engineering. After graduating from college, Gene began a long career with General Electric in Schenectady, NY, where he and Elsie began their life together. They were moved to Syracuse, NY, and finally to Ormond Beach, FL in 1963.

He was an early member of Oceanside Country Club, where he enjoyed golf, bridge, gin rummy and poker with friends. He played a key role in the recent upgrades to the club. Following his retirement from GE, he purchased Nova Family Campground in Port Orange, FL, and completed its development and modernization. During his tenure as a campground owner, Gene served a term as President of the Florida Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds. He was appointed as a member of the Florida Tourism Advisory Committee by Florida Governor Bob Graham. Additional entrepreneurial efforts included investing in the Aliki Towers on Daytona Beach, Pickwick Village mobile home park in Port Orange, FL and Bolton Auto Brokers. Gene was a partner in Dick Segale's Italian Restaurant, Riccardos, a local favorite, from 1992 until it closed in 2003. Gene enjoyed hunting and camping, especially the annual family hunt/fish hosted by son Eugene at his South Carolina cabin.

Survivors include children Steven (Nelda) Iozzino, Cathy (Bill) Walsh, Susan (Gerry) Romer and Eugene (Marianne) Iozzino, grandchildren Ashley, Philip and Adam Iozzino, Brian, David and Thomas Walsh, Byron, Michael, Matthew, and Regina Romer, and Geno, Alysha and Danielle Iozzino, 10 great grandchildren and his brother Louis Iozzino and many loving nieces and nephews.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Friday May 5, 2017 at 1:00pm at St. Brendan's Catholic Church, Ormond Beach, FL with Rev. Tim Daly as Celebrant.
