Evan Francis Harrington Evan was a very special child who touched everyone he met. He left us suddenly and unexpectedly Friday, November 13, 2015, and went straight to Heaven. His infectious smile and unbridled, joyous laugh made an indelible impression on our world. He will forever live in our hearts, affecting everything we do, and we are eternally grateful to have been given the opportunity to be his parents. We are so deeply appreciative of everyone who was ever a part of Evan's world. He thoroughly enjoyed interacting with people, sharing his warmth, laughter and joy. During his short time he opened doors to worlds we would not have known, brought into our lives wonderful, generous, caring people we would never have met, and shared with us truly unique and beautiful experiences. Anyone who has ever been, in any way, touched by Evan is invited to join us to celebrate his very special life.

  1. Dear Steve, Ellen, and family,
    Be strong, have faith and have courage; I know that this a rough time for you all.
    Draw from the strength that Evan had during his all too short life. Take solace in knowing you all did your best and made his life joyful. I believe with all my heart that Evan€™s spirit will always be you and your family. He is a part of who you are and will always remain with you through your memories. I only wish I could take some of your pain away, but this is something we all must go through and process for ourselves. It may not make sense right now but trust me it will someday.
    My deepest Sympathy & Prayers
