Eugene A "Gene" Jablinski

JABLINSKI, Eugene Adolph, “Gene”, age 92, passed away Monday, May 2, 2022 at Ohio Hospice of Dayton. He was born June 9, 1929 in Dayton, OH; the son of the late Adolph and Marie (Szymczak) Jablinski. He was a 1948 graduate of Chaminade High School, received his BS in History from the University of Dayton, and his JD from the University of Cincinnati School of Law. Gene played the accordion and started his own polka band. He was a member of the Polish National Alliance, Polish Club of Dayton, Dayton Agonis Club, and past president of the National Advocate Society, having hosted the 19th convention in 1983 in Sawmill Creek, OH. Gene was also a lifetime member of St. Adalbert’s Polish Church, until its closing in 2021. He then joined Incarnation Church in Centerville. Gene was a Marine in the Korean War and afterward he spent a few years as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney in Montgomery County, OH.
