* Dr. Eugene Rinkey, age 84, of St. Paul died after a lengthy illness with Alzheimer's on March 21, 2000. Gene was decorated during World War II, receiving six Bronze Stars while serving for 33 months as a Captain in the Army's 56th Medical Battalion in the African and European campaigns. He graduated from the University of Minnesota Medical School in 1940 and practiced internal medicine at Miller and United Hospitals in Saint Paul for 40 years, until his retirement at age 70.
