Eugene Peyser

Eugene "Gene" Peyser passed away Friday, January 29, 2016, at the age of 90 after a brave battle with cancer; comforted by his wife of 69 years, Helene Peyser. Mr. Peyser was born August 20, 1925, to the late Charles Herman Piser and Mary Edith Sherman on the family farm in Pittstown. He and his wife Helene ran that farm until 1985 when they retired to Buskirk. In addition to carrying on the 200 year old tradition of dairy farming on the 160 acre homestead, Gene was also a carpenter and electrician who worked with his father-in-law building and wiring new homes. An honest, dedicated man, he worked hard his whole life. On the farm Gene delighted in naming his Holstein cows after family and friends and was always happy there. He enjoyed attending services at the Eagle Bridge United Methodist Church where he would joke that he wanted to be sure and keep their weekly attendance numbers up. He served as corp director of the Speigleaires Jr. Drum & Bugle Corp and Boy Scout leader of the Speigletown troop. He was also a member of Harley Owners Group riding his Harley up to the age of 89. Mr. Peyser was preceded in death by his brothers, Gerald and Robert, and his son, Mark and his granddaughter, Colleen Peyser. He is survived by his wife, Helene D. Peyser; a sister, Evelyn Bonesteel; son, Glen Peyser (Mary); daughter, Lori Stevens (Ralph); and daughter-in-law, Beverly, as well as grandchildren, Jennifer Peyser, Kristin (Michael) Gregor, Dustin Peyser, Jason (Tracey) Peyser and Leslie (Michael) Donohue and seven great-grandchildren. The service will be held Wednesday from 4 to 6 p.m. followed by a prayer service from the McLoughlin & Mason Funeral Home, 8 - 109th St., Troy. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Eagle Bridge United Methodist Church, 53 County Rt. 59A, Buskirk, N.Y. 12028.
