Evan, a lifelong resident of Alachua County, passed away unexpectedly in 2017 at the age of 13. He attended Oak Hall School, Hidden Oak Elementary and was in the 7th grade at Kanapaha Middle School. Evan was a kind and gentle person with a wonderful sense of humor. His love for the ocean led him to spend many days with his father kite-surfing, boogie or skim boarding, and on his family’s sailboat. Evan found fish fascinating and maintained a fish tank with his mother. Evan also enjoyed playing soccer and spending time with his friends. He was an avid audiobook listener with science fiction and fantasy novels being his favorite genres.

Evan is survived by his father, mother, sister, step-mother, step-father, step-brother, step-sister, grandparents, and great grandmothe
