Jan. 30, 1948 – March 16, 2017
Eugene E. “Geno” Fix, a founder and owner with Buffalo Airport Taxi, died unexpectedly Thursday in his Lancaster home. He was 69.
Born in Buffalo, the fourth of five children, he attended Our Lady Help of Christians School, was a 1966 graduate of Bishop Neumann High School and earned an associate’s degree from Erie County Technical Institute, now Erie Community College. He served in the Marine Corps from 1968 to 1970, attaining the rank of corporal. Because he could type 100 words a minute, he was not deployed overseas but stationed instead in California.
Mr. Fix returned to Buffalo after traveling for several years and was one of the founding drivers of Buffalo Airport Taxi, the exclusive operator at Buffalo Niagara International Airport.
Semi-retired, he drove for the company two days a week until his death.
He was an avid horseshoe player.
Survivors include two sisters, Patricia A. Salemi and Mary Beth Jerebko, and nieces and nephews.
A memorial gathering will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday in Wendel & Loecher Funeral Home, 27 Aurora St., Lancaster.
