Gene Braswell

3/18/1941 -9/12/2018


Gene Braswell of Eureka Springs, Arkansas was born March 18, 1941 in Denver, Arkansas to Charlie and Elzie (Butler) Braswell. He passed away surrounded by his family at his home September 12, 2018 at the age of 77.
Gene was a minister of six Assembly of God churches in Arkansas and Colorado. He also was a cattle farmer; church furniture and carpet salesman and he built the resort Lakeshore Cabins on Beaver Lake. He was a lifelong hunter, trapper and an avid fisherman. A perfect day would be “sittin’ at the Round Hole” on Kings River catching his limit of white bass. Gene was one of God’s quiet givers who looked daily to be a help to those in need. He found joy in giving away bags of fish and bounty from his garden or giving to churches and organizations to help the less fortunate. He enjoyed the simple things in life the most, fish cookouts with family and friends, fishing in an early morning fog, a sunset on the lake viewed from the deck with Juanita or a walk on the beach. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and a friend to many from all walks of life. Gene lived an honest, honorable life and left a legacy of unconditional love and generosity to others and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
He is survived by one daughter, Lita Braswell of Eureka Springs, Arkansas; and two sons, Chuck Braswell and wife, Christie of Eureka Springs, Arkansas; David Braswell and wife, Donna of Eureka Springs, Arkansas and his “like a son” nephew, David Jenkins of Green Forest, Arkansas. Three grandchildren, Justin Braswell and wife Brenda of Eugene, Oregon; Elaina Teigen and husband, Colby of Eureka Springs, Arkansas; and Tammy Krosky of Fayetteville, Arkansas. Two great-grandchildren, Addison and Carleigh Teigen of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Three sisters, Lola Taylor Erwin of Portland, Oregon; Charlene Jenkins of Green Forest, Arkansas; and Ray Ann Worley of Berryville, Arkansas.
He was preceded in death by his parents and Juanita, his wife of 55 years.
A graveside celebration of Gene’s life will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, September 22, 2018, at the Eureka Springs Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to Flint Street Fellowship Food Bank, P.O. Box 323, Eureka Springs, AR 72632 or Arrangements are under the direction of Nelson Funeral Service, Inc.
