Evan graduated from Pike Liberal Arts School (1993) and Troy University (1997). He was simply Evan with no other words needed for those who knew him. He enjoyed helping others anytime he could, and it was rare that he accepted anything from anyone. Evan lived a simple, carefree life travelling on the whim to any place he desired. He spent a lot of time outdoors and spoke often of how beautiful and peaceful it was to sleep underneath the stars. Evan will be missed by his family and friends, but we know there is comfort and peace for his sweet soul that now rests in eternity with his Lord and Savior.
The family would like to thank all of the many who showed unconditional love, encouragement, support to Evan him throughout his life. We know that he was special to so many and we will always be grateful for you. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to a charity of choice.
