Remembering Red

123RF

A sad update to an earlier post here at Patrick’s Place:

Local radio and television personality and published author Red Evans lost his battle with cancer this morning.

Red was diagnosed with terminal cancer earlier this year, the same year that he published his first novel, On Ice, at age 75, proving that it is never too late to see a dream through.

I spoke to Red’s son earlier this evening, who says that what’s important now is that Red is out of pain and in a better place.  In an email to members of the writing group Red spoke to just last month, his son said that his father “entered the Pearly Gates conjuring up thoughts for his first heavenly novel.”

Local author Dave Moulton recently wrote a piece about Red’s visit with the group.  You can view that post here.

Red will be greatly missed.
