On February 6, 2019, Eugene H. Schreiber, 89, prominent Baltimore lawyer, beloved husband of Alice Schreiber (nee Abrams); cherished father of Jeri (Gene) Wilkins, Karen (Howard) Fireman and Leslie (Andy) Kern; loving grandfather of Jeffrey Gouline, Jordan (Jackie) Gouline, Lt. Seth Fireman, David Fireman, S Alexander Kern, S Trevor Kern, and S Elliott Kern; and dear great-grandfather of Alexa and Madison Gouline. He is predeceased by brother Alvin Schreiber; and parents Samuel and Frances Schreiber.

He was born and raised in Baltimore. He attended Valley Forge Military Academy, then Johns Hopkins University for his undergraduate degree. He served as 1st Lieutenant in the United States Armed Forces, then joined the family business, Schreiber Bros. Supermarkets, working as comptroller. At the same time, he attended law school at the University of Maryland, where he discovered his passion for the law. He would later establish himself as one of Baltimore’s leading authorities on business and estate law. He served as managing partner at Blades and Rosenfeld, and over the years worked with many of Baltimore’s notable families. He loved the law and was devoted to, and trusted by his clients, resulting in many long-lasting relationships.

In the late 1940s, he met Alice (nee Abrams) on a blind date arranged by a fraternity brother. He knew immediately that Alice was the one, and the two were wed in 1953. They settled in Baltimore. He was a caring, generous and loving husband and father. Nothing was more important to him than time spent with family and friends. In his spare time, he loved to travel with Alice. In addition, he was a serious athlete and competitive golfer, nicknamed “Gene the Machine” for his pinpoint accuracy and straight shots down the fairway. He was very active in numerous associations and charities including The Associated, the ACLU and the Baltimore Symphony. Dedicated to his career, he was still practicing the law he loved the week prior to his passing. He will be missed greatly by his family, coworkers, clients and friends.
