Gary was and always will be a family member! His did Mr. Gary, His mother Mrs. Joanne, and Kristin his sister. They always treated me as family and I mourn the loss of Gary! He was a true and very good friend to me! I had so many great times with him I cannot count! My fondest memory is when we went to the ocean with several friends. He came by my work at the rotunda liquors. Needless to say the trunk of his cutless convertible was filled to the top when we left. We did A 100 miles an hour down and back. We both fell asleep on the beach and I got sun poisoning - lol. But I had so many great memories with him! He truly was a brother to me. I will miss his singing, his laughter, and most of all, his kindness! He was a gentle soul with a kind heart! It,s hard to say goodbye! So until we meet again my brother! I will keep your spirit alive in my memories with you! To you dad and your sister! My deepest sympathy and condolences! I love you. You will be missed my dear friend!

I remember every Christmas from the time I can remember until my late teens our family would come to your guys' house which was the best topper to our Christmas!!! I couldn't wait to get to the house to be with family & hear the Great stories that happened throughout the year but Whip always told the best & funniest stories! Little did anyone know but I'm going to say that every now & then Whip would go upstairs to his room give me that look, then I would follow where there we would sneak a drink or two or three but who was counting!!! Not me of course but I always thought he was the coolest cousin because of his genuineness & eventhough I was only 3 yrs younger he always had time to tell his stories. I know you'll be missed but definitely in a better place. Give my dad, mom, Grandmom, Aunt Joanne & all our family a hug & kiss for us until we meet again Cuz!!!

I have known Gary (Whip) from the time I was 2 or 3 years old, as he was my brother Chris Evans' best friend. I was devastated to hear of his passing. What I remember most about Gary is his singing. Gary never had to knock at my house, so he would walk in and I would hear him singing as he made his way from the back door to our family room. He would frequently sing a song by The Steve Miller Band which starts, "This is a story about Billy Jo and Bobby Sue" then he would say, "Where's Fat Boy at?" Whenever he would leave my house we would hear his Blue Chevelle revving it's engine in the drive way, then the chirp of his wheels as he did a burn out and drove off into the distance. To this day, whenever I hear a Chevelle turn over and rev it's engine I think of him. Over the years Chris, Gary and myself had many good times together. We used to go crayfish hunting down at the Jones Falls when we were little kids, we attended many party's together in the neighborhood (as teenagers) and had many fun times just hanging out at my house. Gary was known and loved by everyone in Medfield/Hampden, but he was especially loved by my brother Chris who greatly valued his friendship. They worked on cars together, in the driveway every weekend and spent time hanging out at the local Farm Store and at BJ's Pub. Gary was so much a part of my childhood and teenage years that it's difficult for me to accept the fact that he is gone. It seems like just yesterday we were taking long rides out Falls Rd, listening to the stereo, hanging out at lake Roland and doing the "Hampden 500." I loved Gary like a second brother. He will be greatly missed. Rest in peace my good friend. -Candice Evans

*Broken Chain*
We little knew that morning
that God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
you did not go alone,
for part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide,
and though we can not see you,
you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same
but as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

I remember growing up and Gary living right behind my house. He always made me laugh so hard because anytime I would be in my pool or laying in the sun he would peek out the window of his kitchen. We became good friends when I tuned 17 and had a lot of good times that lasted for years! I always loved his Cutlass and he let me drive it one time. That was a mistake, he had such a small steering wheel I almost lost control. He just laughed it off, he was a great friend and will be missed dearly. Rest my friend and we will meet again one day.
Your friend,
Christa
