The news was shared by his wife Karin in a social media post:

“Dear friends and family, we wanted to let you know that we have suffered a great loss. Evans was in an accident yesterday and did not survive.”
“He was our rock, our beloved, world’s best Dad and my life partner for over 30 years. His absence leaves a gaping hole in our hearts. We are honestly not sure how we will live without him.”
She adds, “We would appreciate your love and prayers at this time.”

    I did not know him personally, but enjoyed his work. A lifetime of devotion to our sport & his family. For some insight into the man and the influence he's had on motorcycling I refer you to the latest issue of Rider magazine. Greg Drevenstedt E-I-C writes in his column how Evan touched the lives of all who met him. Condolences to his family & friends.
