Gene Condrey Obituary - Hill Funeral Home


A private service with immediate family only will be held at Hill Funeral Home on March 22, 2023.

Phyllis, Kim, and Family,

I'm so sorry to hear of Gene's passing. He was a fun part of our neighborhood for many years. I'll always remember our driveway conversations fondly. He was a neighbor in the best sense, and helped install my front door and dishwasher. We talked camping and gardening and kids at length. His love for Kim and his grandchildren was immense and shone in every conversation. We will remember Gene very fondly.

Carissa and Daniel Krauss

Obituary for Gene Condrey

Gene Condrey 1947-2023

Gene Condrey

03/06/1947 - 03/17/2023

Gene Frederick Condrey born March 6, 1947, passed from this world on March 17, 2023 to join his brother (Joseph), sisters (Joan Marie and Glennice) mother (Ida), and father (Floyd).

A native of Powhatan, Virginia, Gene worked as a plumber by trade for over 50 years with various companies in the Richmond area, while also serving as a volunteer firefighter. He married the love of his life, Phyllis (Hall) of Richmond, Virginia in 1968. Together, they shared 54 years of marriage and raised Kimberly (married to Daryl Kinney of Richmond, Virginia), their only child, who moved to Columbus, Ohio in 1998. While living in Powhatan, Gene relished his time hunting in Keysville, fishing on Chesapeake Bay, and camping Bayside in Mathews County, where he spent many of his weekends with family and friends.

Upon hearing the news that they were to be grandparents, Gene and Phyllis moved to Delaware, Ohio in 2011 to welcome the birth of their first grandchild, Haydn (11). Their second grandchild, Riley (8), was born shortly thereafter in 2014. After working for a brief time at Riverside Methodist Hospital, Gene fully retired in 2013 and spent his remaining days focused on his family. He loved being babysitter and playing with Riley and Haydn, and passed along his passion for NASCAR to Haydn, who always loved watching races with “Papa.” Always a fighter, Gene endured colon cancer, liver cancer and end-stage renal disease, living the last three and a half years of his life as a dialysis patient, making many friends during his scheduled treatments.

Phyllis, Kim, Daryl, Haydn, and Riley will miss “Papa” immeasurably. He will remain forever in our hearts as a husband, father, grandfather, Papa, outdoorsman, fisherman, deer hunter, jovial spirit, and friend. He is survived in Virginia by sisters (Carol, Helen, Kay) and a brother (John).

A private service with immediate family only will be held at Hill Funeral Home on March 22, 2023.
