Evan Koger, 34, husband of Brooke Koger, passed away at home on September 1, 2020, surrounded by loved ones after fighting the most courageous battle against cancer for nearly nine years.

Evan Koger was born on July 6th, 1986, in Eau Claire, WI to Mark and Cathy Koger. After graduating in 2005 from Memorial High School in Eau Claire, WI, he went on to study Kinesiology at UW-Eau Claire, graduating in 2009, and he completed his Master’s in Exercise Physiology from Minnesota State University, Mankato in 2011. In 2012, he started an internship at Aspirus Wausau Hospital, and shortly after completing his internship, he began his career with the Cardiac Device Clinic.

In 2016, he started with Abbott Laboratories, where he thoroughly enjoyed helping patients. Evan met Brooke at UW-Eau Claire in 2007, while playing intramural soccer, a favorite pastime for the two of them. They married in 2013 in Wausau, WI, and welcomed their daughter, Addison, the following year. Their son, Emerson, joined the family in 2016. Evan's pride and joy were his children, he loved them so much. Evan was the kindest, gentlest soul, with a willingness to help anyone. He also demonstrated strength, bravery and determination, unlike any other, throughout his fight against cancer. He was quick to make friends, and build lifelong relationships with those who were lucky enough to have known him.
