Evan was my first friend at Forest Heights in grade 3, we did lunches together and birthdays. Played sports at recess… all those mayberry childhood memories, we had chatted and got caught up after Kenn passed away. So we were sure to leave nothing left unsaid. Fond memories of a brilliant artist.

Lianna and Dan Ryan

We were very sorry to hear of Evan’s passing.

Corinne Zimmerman

My heartfelt condolences to the Jones family and all of Evans friends. I knew Evan after SNFU in the late 80s. His soul just shined and brightened up her room, even with his personal demons. He cared so much for his family and his friends and they wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do for them.
I remember many times sitting and listening to his deep thoughts of society some of the conspiracy theories he had. But I also listened to the poetry he would share, I still have a book of his poetry and we talked a couple weeks ago and he just brightened up my week. Just by him being himself. The world lost a great soul, Evan will always be apart of my soul. RIP peace my friend.

Jody Shenkarek
