When Eugene was 5 years old his mother moved him and his two sisters Latrice Swarn and Doris Swarn to Covert, MI. While in Covert, Eugene discovered his love for music and sports. Eugene devoted countless hours creating instrumentals, writing music and performing at shows in cities like Chicago and Atlanta. It was also in Covert that he met his high school sweetheart and had his first child Eugene Aldridge who passed during the third trimester and a year later his oldest daughter Anahi Aldridge.
Eugene graduated from Covert High School with the Class of 2007 and remained in Michigan for most of his life where he became a loving father to his five girls.

To know Yummy was to know just how much he loved his mother and his girls and idolized his father. He was a devoted son, a caring father and a loyal friend. Always genuine, he was the same person in private as he was in public. Memories of his sense of humor, smile and silly laugh will comfort his loved ones when they think of him.
He is preceded in death by a son – Eugene Aldridge, grandmother –Doris (Dorothy) Mae Aldridge and grandfather- James Edward.
