On May 11, 1996, he was united in marriage to Ona Ketcher at his father's home in Belle. They have been residents of the Belle area for over 17 years after moving from Barnsdall, Oklahoma. Ona survives of their home in Belle.
Eno was a cowboy and a cattleman, and being a cattleman, he loved his cows. He liked to ride horses as well as four wheelers and loved taking the grandkids on tractor rides. Although he had lived in different parts of the country, including Colorado, Oklahoma and Thayer, KS, Colorado was his favorite place. Eno liked to visit with people and he never met a stranger. He would open his home to anyone and was a mentor to many young people who were in need of help. He was a member of the Missouri Cattleman's Association and the N.R.A. His greatest joy was spending time with his grandchildren. He will be missed by all that knew and loved him.
