Stephen Evans

By John Valentine
President of the Utah Senate

Our Senate Family experienced a loss last Friday morning. Stephen Evans, husband of Senator Beverly Evans passed away. His unexpected departure was deeply felt by all senators and staff.

Stephen was a kind, constant presence in the Utah Senate Offices. You may have seen him, quietly reading or talking to staff while he waited for his wife to complete the unending meetings required of an involved legislator and member of Senate Leadership.

He was a good man, and a source of quiet good-humor, patience and strength in the Senate.

We all miss him.

My condolences to Senator Evans and her family. I have met both of them on various occasions and found them to be wonderful people. I spoke with Stephen Evans many times during the session and he was always cheerful and friendly.

Words can not describe Beverly's loss. So ironic that she is retiring from the Senate this year to spend more quality family time and something like this happens. God truly works in strange ways at times. Beverly has done so much to help us here in the Basin. We pledge to be there for her in this time of need.

My condolences to Senator Evans. Stephen Evans was one of the nicest people anyone could have the pleasure to know. As an intern, I appreciated the opportunity to get to know him and to listen to his wisdom concerning life. He was a wise man who treated everyone with kindness and respect. He will be missed.
