For those of us who came to know John over the years, he was the consummate colleague and often “go to guy” to keep the wheels of faculty governance moving.  He could astutely chair major search committees and keep them moving forward, in spite of disparate opinions about candidates!  He was a distinguished scholar in his own right as well.  For those reading the obituary and wanting to donate per family wishes, may I take the liberty to explain that in addition to the UWM Scholarship Program mentioned, the “Evans Scholars Program” option is a fund I support as well.  As a golfer, John and I shared golf as an avocational passion.  More information on these need-based scholarships for caddies may be obtained at:

Thanks for your attention.
