Evan was a member of the Wellsville Moose Teen Club and participated in the NYS Moose Convention.
Evan enjoyed the family trips to Disney World, and it was such a joy to witness his excitement as he met his favorite characters, especially Olaf. He would sing all the Disney songs ecstatically each night as he did his chores or rode in the car. He knew all the lyrics.
Evan was a proud member of the Buffalo Bills Mafia. There was only one team for him. Evan loved the holidays. Christmas was his favorite holiday and he often would beg to play Christmas music even in the heat of the summer at Aunt Judy’s Pond. Evan would have eaten pizza daily if given the choice with a giant smile on his face. He played many video games and loved to battle his bother Clifton at Fortnight. He enjoyed board games with his family and had a contagious laughter. He liked to say he was Grandma Angie’s present as they shared a birthday. Evan especially loved to cuddle with his dog Scooby.
