Donald Evanovich

September 7, 1953 ~ February 14, 2019 (age 65)


Donald Evanovich, 65, quietly passed away in his sleep Thursday, February 14, 2019 in his home. 

Donald was born on September 7, 1953 in South Bend to Alexander and Stella (Morris) Evanovich.

Surviving are his partner Vicki Cadieux, 3 daughters Amy (Brian) Schrock, Amber (Chris) Hazewski and Gena Cadieux.  2 grandchildren Weston and Harlow, a sister Donna (Robert) Legus,  2 nieces Michelle Napier and Christina Williams, 2 great-nieces McKenzie Miller and Cierra Wolf and a great-nephew Aaron Polly.

Don enjoyed a lifelong obsession for drums and Rock & Roll.  He has been in bands since his early teens, up until his final bands Irvington Rush and Geezer.  

Along the way, everyone who met Don, has either enjoyed or been shocked by his unique and sometimes off the wall sense of humor.  If he could make you laugh, it made his day!  One of his favorite tricks to play was to "bonk" his head on an opening door garnering gasps and "Oh no!" from his friends and passers-by.  

We hope you finally have that 1969 Silver Grey Corvette, Don!

Per Donald's wishes, Zahoran's Funeral Home has been entrusted with Don's final care.  He has chosen cremation with no viewing or funeral.  He wants his friends and family to celebrate his life with music and laughter.
