     Eugene Hess was an athlete throughout his life and for a long time held the high school state record for high jump.
    “He was very athletic and enjoyed every sport. He was a high school standout in all the sports,” his son Eric said.
    Mr. Hess, 89, died on Tuesday, Oct. 3, in Geneva, Ill.
    He was born in Racine on Jan. 12, 1928, to William and Daisy Moorman Hess.
    Mr. Hess was raised in Port Washington and graduated from Port Washington High School in 1946. While in high school, he participated in basketball, football and track.
    Mr. Hess returned to track and field after he retired from Wisconsin Energy by participating in the Senior Olympics in the early 1990s. He placed first in multiple events at the state and regional levels and was ranked nationally in the top five in the high jump in the 60-and-older age category.
    While in high school, Mr. Hess received an athletic scholarship to Marquette University, but he didn’t pursue the offer. Today, one of his granddaughters plays soccer for Marquette at Valley Field, which overlooks the power plant where Mr. Hess used to work.
    After graduating high school, Mr. Hess enlisted in the U.S. Army and served at Camp Lee in Virginia until 1948. He subsequently served in the U.S. Army Reserves until 1962, with the rank of first lieutenant.
    On Nov. 27, 1948, he was married to Helen Streff, and the couple lived in New Berlin for more than 40 years.
    Mr. Hess joined Wisconsin Electric Power Company in 1949 to work at the power plant in Port Washington where his father had also worked. He rose through the ranks and was put in charge of managing the start-up of the company’s Valley Power Plant in Milwaukee in 1967 and ultimately became responsible for managing all of the company’s power plants in Milwaukee, including the related engineering and safety areas. He retired from Wisconsin Energy in 1988.
    Mr. Hess was an active member of various Masonic organizations. He served as an officer of the West Allis Lodge #291 for a number of years, and became the lodge’s worshipful master in 1980. He continued to be involved as a past master, and also became worshipful master of the Day Lite Lodge #358. He participated in the Shriners and National Sojourners organizations and earned various awards for his service to Freemasonry.
    Mr. Hess is survived by his children Eugen (Jutta) of Germany and Eric (Megan) of Batavia, Ill.; grandchildren Morgan, Emily, Erik and Jonathan; and sisters Dorothy Tatum of Racine and Ruth Hoppe of Cedarburg.
    He was preceded in death by his wife Helen, daughter Jill Hess, brother William, and sister Joyce Verley.
    A memorial service will be held at Krause Funeral Home in New Berlin at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21. Visitation will be at the funeral home on Saturday from 10:30 a.m. until the service.
    A private burial will be at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Saukville.
    Memorials to Easter Seals Wisconsin are appreciated.
