On the evening of January 20, 2021, Evan passed away peacefully at his home off Montagu Heights. He was a Bahamian native, born in Nassau, New Providence on March 22, 1961. Evan thoroughly enjoyed all the nature the island offers, from taking daily swims in the beautiful sea to walking the trails, and often popping in to Ardastra Gardens to admire all the creatures. Evan was an avid bird watcher and an active member of the Bird Club of New Providence. The Club’s birdwatching outings were always a highlight of his weekends. He was also an active member of the Bahamas National Trust. Evan’s favorite pastimes at home were reading, completing crossword puzzles, and watching Jeopardy.
His true passion in life, however, was caring for his beloved turtles. Evan meticulously cared for every turtle, always making sure each one had a full belly and fresh water daily. Evan’s love for his turtles was truly admirable and many family members and friends have fond memories of helping with the daily turtle care.
Also dear in Evan’s heart was his sweet cat, Sir Kit Kat, who showed up at his house one day as a stray kitten and quickly earned a special spot in Evan’s life. Evan also had many beloved dogs throughout the years, all of whom were always spoiled and a top priority of his daily routine.
Evan was an alum of St. Andrews International School and was a proud member of the graduating class of 1978.
Sadly, Evan was predeceased by his Father: George (2005), Mother: Olive (2015), Brothers: Howard (1955) and John (2005), and Sisters: Rosamund (1984) and Suzanne (2005).
Evan’s passing leaves many hearts heavy and he will be greatly missed by his Nephew: Matthew Herbert and his Wife: Candi; Niece: Jennifer Eiland; Niece: Jessica Surovek and her Husband: Clay; Niece: Julia Roach and her Husband: Josh; Niece: Tamara Armitage and her Husband: Phil; Niece: Tasha Klimczak and her Husband: Cyril; and eleven grand nephews and nieces.
Special thanks to Evan’s long list of friends and neighbors who brought such joy to his life, and to Bethel Brothers Morticians for their kind assistance in our time of need.
May His Soul Rest in Peace!
