We are so sad to just barely find out about Evan's death. We would have been there at the funeral if we would have known. Evan was one of our dear friends and neighbor for years in Midway. Roy and Evan spent so much time together fixing, solving, laughing, talking, eating, and sharing stories and experiences. We loved Evan and Dezzie so very much. They were so good to us. We were recipients of Evan's sausage and Dezzie's nativity sets. What a great man!! Kenny, Vickie, and family may you know of our sincere sympathy in the loss of your father, grandfather, and great grandfather. We loved watching his tribute video. May our Father in Heaven bless you all with peace and comfort each and every day as you work through the grieving process. Lovingly, Roy and Martha Remund

I had the opportunity to work with Evan when he was farming the sewer district ground over by the airport in Heber City Utah. We had a good time and he always made sure that we all took a short nap and had a bowl of ice cream before we all headed back out to go to work. He was truly a great man with a kind heart. He will be missed.
