Evan Burke, 1984-2005

Evan was blossoming into a very loving, caring, fun person.  One of his friends called him the “mayor” of Ashland because he seemed to know everyone, or at least the person they were with.  He enjoyed people.  He loved to be out of doors, hiking, bike riding, skiing, skateboarding, playing Frisbee, whatever would get him outside.

He lived at full throttle.  He was a fabulous, very creative, artist.  His vision of the world was tuned to a different frequency than most people’s perception.  We have gotten to know 4 of his 5 identifiable recipients.  We feel, and I am sure Evan would agree, what draws them together is love.  We love knowing his recipients.  Our family has increased exponentially.
