Eugene Jude Kornmeier

Eugene Jude Kornmeier III, 86, of Grosse Pointe Farms, died at Ascension St. John Hospital on July 15, 2021, with his wife of 62 years, Nancy, at his side.

Gene was born in Detroit, Michigan on July 10, 1935 to Elinor and Eugene Kornmeier, Jr. He lived, attended school and worked in Michigan his entire life. He graduated from St. Paul Catholic High School and the University of Detroit. His Catholic faith and education informed and defined his life. He served 5 years in the Michigan Air National Guard Reserves. His business career was in the travel sales incentive industry for 35 years having worked for Maritz and then retiring from S&H Motivation and Travel. After retirement, he found great satisfaction being involved with his two sons in the real estate and property management company ANK Enterprises, Inc.

His integrity, genuine regard and respect for those he met and worked with were his hallmark.

Gene and Nancy's favorite sport was tennis and that became a pastime of the entire family. His passion for cars is a legacy that was passed on to his children and grandchildren. They enjoyed their summers in Harbor Springs, MI and winters on Key Biscayne, FL. Gene served as member and President of the Board of Windward Owner's Association in Harbor Springs for 21 years. He was a member of the Country Club of Detroit and The Tennis House.

Gene was a devoted husband, father and grandfather who will be missed by his entire family and all who had the privilege of knowing him. He was predeceased by his sister Jude Huetteman. He is survived by his wife Nancy and four children: Anne (Michael) Stafford, Matt (Julie), Steve (Kris), and Jane (Paul) Knight, twelve grandchildren, his sisters Gail Kozlowski and Pam Stanton and his brother Tom.

A gathering will be held on Wednesday, July 21 at 9:30 am until the time of the Memorial Mass at 10 am. Inurnment will follow at the St. Paul columbarium. Memorial contributions may be made to Pope Francis Center, 438 St. Antoine, Detroit, MI 48226.

I was a long-term loyal client of Gene's in the auto industry but much more than a business relationship, extending into our respective retirements. My wife Billie, together with Nancy and Gene, enjoyed a number of special foreign vacation places plus many good times around town, including dining and tennis. Gene, a very special person, with notably high standards regarding everything he encountered, will always rank among the best of friends, with his numerous attributes so perfectly outlined in his obituary. I feel very privileged to always be on the same "wave-length" with Gene.
God Bless, as the Lord is sure to have much time for him; meanwhile, Nancy and Family will have a impeccable legacy that will grown in meaning and stature over time.

I had the pleasure of working with Gene in the Sales and Incentive business. He was a true leader in the business and a pleasure to work for. A man of impeccable integrity, with a great sense of humor. Our condolences to Nancy & the entire family. E. J. and Susan Eckert

I was so hoping to see Gene at Cardiac Rehab. He was great to talk to always happy and fun to exercise with. Wow, I can't tell you how bad I feel. Larry DeLorme

I don’t think I’ve met a kinder man! He was probably the nicest person I have ever met.
