The Home of Rock N' Roll has partnered with American Senior Magazine to give a nod of recognition to local seniors who've done their part in making Greater Danbury such an incredible place to live.

This week, we give a giant shout-out to Eugene Tomanio from Danbury, who according to his granddaughter-in-law, Meghan Rose is one amazing man who absolutely loves his family and his community. Here's what Meghan had to say about her grandfather-in-law:

Gene, my grandfather-in-law was born and raised in Danbury and was a member of the Danbury Fire Department. I've only known Pop for around eight years and he immediately became one of my favorite people ever, because he loves to dote on his family.  He's an amazing man and one of the greatest storytellers ever. Pop is part of the history of Danbury, working in the hat factory before he was a member of the fire department. He worked multiple jobs to ensure his wife, Evelyn could stay home to raise their children. Poppy's beloved passed away in October of 2013. He loves golf, a good glass of red wine, and most importantly, his family.

We say thank you, Eugene Tomanio, for making such a positive impact on the great city of Danbury.

Each week, we'll continue to highlight a Greater Danbury senior who simply makes this wonderful area a better place to live. The featured senior will receive a $50 gift card to use at an area mall and a one year subscription to American Senior Magazine. Is there a senior in your life who deserves some well-earned recognition? It could be a grandfather, aunt, friend, or even your mom. It's easy, just fill out the form below. We'll be accepting submissions between 8/21/17 and 11/21/17.
