To Deb and family...
I remember being in Dr's office waiting for the call when we knew you were in labor.... "It's a BOY"!
The first memory to come to mind was " little Evan" on our camping trip. Finding sticks and playing in the dirt..
Most of my memories of Evan are hearing them through our talks. You always had a smile on your face whether it was a happy story or a "frustrating " one. He truly was your "Sweet Evan". "..My last memory of Evan at Erin's wedding is my fondest. (Who would imagine it would be the last) He was so handsome and a real "chatty Charlie" that day. He greeted Mark and I at the ceremony with a big smile , a hearty handshake for Mark and a big hug for me. Later at the reception he had a nice talk with Mark and I. I know your lives are forever changed now, please find some peace in these memories from friends and family.
Love you all.
Kelly and Mark Heberlein

Evan there is way too much to put into words. You were like a brother to me. From all the countless bike rides to noco. To crashing at your house. Always giving me a ride to school. All the bills games you brought me too and wrestling shows me you and Bigb went to. You will always be missed man. Power 3 forever ❤️ I love you Davis Family

Fires were a regular back in the day, some good times with Evan with playing madden, NOCO trips, and building the fort in my backyard. You better be rooting those bills to the super bowl this year. rest easy buddie #fantasychamp2015

Often times people thought Evan and I were actually brothers and it wasn’t hard to make that mistake at all. He was as close to me as any of my siblings, in many ways closer then my biological brothers and sister. Endless hours spent laughing at the dumbest things imaginable that no one else would have probably found funny but he and I always managed to make a comedy out of anything. Our YouTube videos are legendary, memories playing hockey and wrestling are never going away even as far back when we first started hanging out having epic battles with all our action figures. I wouldn’t have made it through school without knowing I have the best friend I could possibly have in the neighborhood. I’m gonna miss you bro. Not gonna be a day I don’t think of you especially anytime watching our favorite movies. BFFF

Evan Davis there are no words. I can’t believe this is real. If I had known it would be the last time, we would have danced more. I would have hugged you tighter. I would have told you how much I love you.
You were always there for me when I needed help. Every time I moved. All the little things I needed help with at my moms. Teaching me to cut my own grass. Planting gardens at grandmas.....

I love you forever and always.
At least I know you are in good company.

Dear Debbie and family,
Unfortunately I did not know Evan well but the fact that he came and helped out the day before and the day of Rachael’s event speaks volumes. I know they were close and heartbreaking to know they are together again in heaven. Hearing the letters you all wrote for him shows he was truly a wonderful young man and part of an amazing family. Cherish those precious memories! ❤️
Love, Julie xoxoxo

Dear Evan,

The first thing we think of when we think of you is smiles... Your warm, welcoming, & kind smile, your sly smile (that was often accompanied by by a mischievous laugh), and, of course, all of the smiles that you brought to the faces of everyone around you.

There are no words to describe how much we will miss seeing your smile, but we are so grateful for the amazing memories of the special times that we've shared... Thoughts of our trips to Ocean City, Disney, Myrtle Beach, and Virginia Beach, family gatherings, fantasy drafts (football and Big Brother!) will always bring smiles to our faces.

You have taken pieces of our hearts with you that can never be replaced. We love you and will think of you every day until we meet again...

Uncle Bobby, Aunt Kristin, and Tyler

I remember Evan and Ricky playing pee wee football. He always had a smile on his face♥️ Thru the years every picture I see of him he still has that beautiful smile. I also noticed he is ALWAYS hugging whoever is near him. Feel the love ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

Evan was the best brother I could have asked for. From childhood sleepovers at Aunt Debbie’s, to years and years of shared birthday parties, and to texting back and forth about Game of Thrones when I was gone for school; Evan was always there. One of my youngest memories was watching Powerpuff Girls with Erin and Evan. Erin and I wanted to pretend that we were Blossom and Bubbles, so we made Evan be Buttercup and he never complained. After that we never stopped bonding over TV shows, so I picked out a quote from one of our childhood favorites:
“Sometimes life is scary and dark. That is why we must find the light.” – BMO from Adventure time

Dear Evan,
I wish I could be there with you right now in our apartment in California, calling mom and dad to assure them that we’re alright and probably to ask them for money. you’d be directing a film and I would be painting mom a big painting. I’ll never stop dreaming and I wish I could keep doing it with you. you are and always will be a part of me. I love you to infinity and beyond.
