Obituary for Eugene “Gene” J. Hameroff Eugene (Gene) J. Hameroff passed away on June 24, 2018, in Tucson, Arizona. Born on December 20, 1921 to immigrant parents in Cleveland, Ohio, Gene is predeceased by his parents, Abraham and Sarah Hameroff; three brothers, Jack, Harry, and Allan; and his beloved sister, Sylvia. He also is predeceased by his wife, Yetta Terri Hameroff, and the love of his later life, Jane Akin. Gene is survived by his two sons, Stephen and David (Anne), and his cherished grandchildren, Matthew and Erin. Upon graduating from Ohio State University, he married Terri, and Gene became the consummate “Ad Man.” He opened his own advertising agency in 1955, and grew it into the largest agency in Central Ohio. Gene loved to share his talents and passion for the ad business. He was a mentor to young professionals and taught advertising courses at Franklin University for over ten years. He was a great supporter of the Columbus Jewish Community and his agency did pro bono work for various community organizations over the years. Gene and Terri moved to Florida in the 1980s, where Gene continued to work in the business. He consulted with small agencies around the country for another 15 years, bringing his experience and positive attitude to help newer, smaller and struggling agencies succeed. In 1999, Gene and Terri moved to Tucson to be with their sons and grandchildren. Gene moved to Saddlebrooke after Terri passed, and lived the golden years he had dreamed of – golf, friends, painting, writing articles for the Saddlebooke News, and joining the Saddlebrooke Literary/Art Guild and the Saddlebrooke Singles. It was at Saddlebrooke that he met Jane, his sweetheart of 13 years. Gene was an accomplished artist whose paintings reflect his love for his family and the Arizona desert. He authored two books in the last decade of his life: When It Is Time to Make the Move, chronicling his decision-making process of moving from his home into an independent living facility; and Revenge of the Communist’s Son, an autobiography of his experiences in the advertising business. Gene will be remembered for his affable and engaging personality and warm smile. He lived his life with an incredibly positive attitude and a deep belief in the teachings of Dale Carnegie. His family, his friends at Saddlebrook and his friends at Atria, where he spent the last few years of his life, will miss him dearly. He and his family are eternally grateful for his caregiver Mel and her family who watched over him the last months of his life. A private graveside service will be held at Evergreen Mortuary. A memorial service honoring his life will be held at Atria at a later date to be announced.
