Evan C. Melau

Evan C. Melau, age 15, was tragically killed in a hit-and-run accident on Friday evening June 19th. He is survived by his heartbroken family, his parents Chuck and Jamie Melau, Jr; his brother Jacob Melau and his sister Zoe Melau. He is also survived by his grandparents Michael and the late Debra Paul, Chuck and Kathleen Melau, Sr; and his uncles Jon Paul and Jeremy (Jackie) Paul.

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.

I never really knew Evan, but I always saw him in the halls. We had the same global period just different teachers, so I would always recommend him jumping around with his friends during the passing period. I can still picture him walking around in his football jersey with his friends after a win. I wish I had the pleasure of getting to know him, but from what I saw every day, he was a light that shined down one everyone. May he Rest In Peace and my condolences to his family that lost an amazing young man.

Evan was such a joy to have in confirmation class at Redeemer. His smile, easy going disposition and true kindness toward his fellow confirmands will be a memory I cherish as one of the small group guides. Evan was such a good sport about volunteering for activities and games we played as part of our studies - he just made things fun! Your family is in my prayers.
