Eugene Bindofer of Kingman passed away peacefully in his sleep on Aug. 9, 2008, in Las Vegas. He was born Sept. 29, 1922, in Cleveland, moved from Ohio to California in 1964, and then from California to Kingman in 1987.
He had a college degree in accounting and was comptroller-vice president of Microbyte Corporation, a computer manufacturing company in Long Beach, Calif., and was an account executive for American Greetings in Ohio for 16 years. He was a member of the International Accountants Society.
Eugene showed wit and wisdom about life - of trivial things he said, "It's not important." When asked by those at a luau in Hawaii to what he credited his long years of marriage to the same women, he replied, "I kept my mouth shut!" Eugene had a great sense of humor. He had a passion for horseracing; he owned three racehorses and raced at Ohio racetracks in the 1950s. He owned two restaurants in Ohio before moving to California. He loved the computer industry; he wrote systems and procedures while working at Microbyte Corporation.
Eugene is survived by his wife of 60 years, Edna Bindofer; and two sons, Kenneth Bindofer and Eugene Bindofer Jr., all of Kingman. He is also survived by six nieces, Janice Estrada of Hesperia, Calif., Sandra Anderson of Kingman, Judy Arntz of Michigan, Mary Jane Everett of Colton, Calif., Melenie Estrada of California, and Ann Marie Shinko of Ohio; and seven nephews, Robert Shinko of Avon, Ohio, Larry Bindofer of Hinckley, Ohio, Billy Taylor of Orlando, Fla., Terry and Lane Lewis of Saginaw, Mich., Mike Lewis of Ocala, Fla., and Gerald Everett of Colton.
Desert Memorial Cremation Society in Las Vegas handled the arrangements. Interment will be at Mountain View Cemetery. There will be no services.
