Funeral Services for Evan will commence at 3:00 PM on Thursday, January 21st, at our Funeral Home.
Hershman, Evan passed away on January 18, 2016. Beloved son of Robin and Jerald, brother of Elizabeth & Grandson of Elaine. Godson of Ron & Linda, friend of countless others, especially Jess. Evan had an infectious smile, capable of disarming anyone, loved sports and was a wonderful hockey player.
In his short life he packed away a huge amount of travel and made friends throughout this country and the world. Growing up, he loved to read and kept that habit during his summer vacations in Hawaii. He loved surfing with his sister and playing tag with the Ahi.
Overall, he loved hockey. He was a student of the game and was at his best on the ice. A fierce defenseman, his hits and slap shots were resounding.
To honor him, he was accepted to the Boston University Chronic Concussion Legacy Foundation. This program is designed to control/cure athletes with chronic concussive encephalitis, from contact sports. That would have made him smile.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Boston University Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy Center (Memo: CTE Neuropathology Fund). Please send donations to:
