Evan lived every day and approached every challenge he met with 125% effort. His strong will and determination to succeed were the driving force that led to many admirable accomplishments in his young life. He will always be remembered for his smiling face, his laugh and his kindness shown to everyone. At an early age Evan realized the importance of a good education by his parents teaching him to always do your best. His dedication to his schoolwork and studies resulted in him being named honor roll student. He excelled in his athletic endeavors as well with basketball, football and especially baseball where his "no fear" attitude at second base was admired by his coaches and teammates.
