Eben died Apr. 2, 1999, at his home in Vero Beach, Fla. In retirement he and Jane, his wife of 53 years, had spent half of each year there-the other half was spent in Little Compton, R.I.
During his active years they lived in Riverside, Conn., while he worked at the Grace Line in NYC from 1940-56, then at ACF Industries Inc. until he retired in 1982. He served on the vestry of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Riverside and was an elected representative to the Greenwich [Conn.] Town Meeting. Sailing, both racing and cruising, had been his first love, but in the last few years he gave up his boats and enjoyed tennis and golf-both, he said, with only passing ability. In 1959 he wrote to us that he was now majoring in retirement and his marks were better than a gentleman's three.
To Jane, their daughters Susan Mygatt and Sarah Hansel, and seven grandchildren, we offer our sincere sympathy.
