Evan Charles Myrtle, age 27, entered this world on August 6, 1987 and departed this world for the next on September 11, 2014.
Evan was able to make people laugh easily, love freely and learn that life is what you make of it. Come sunshine or stormy weather he was there for those he loved. He lived loud and wasn’t afraid to speak his mind, which may have landed him into trouble a time or two. He loved fiercely and held those dear to him close to his heart. Without hesitation, Evan would help a friend in trouble or a stranger in need, and all of those in between.
Evan brought people together from all walks of life. He was born in Washington, grew up in Maine and ended up in North Carolina after getting married. Evan’s spirit is carried on through his daughter, Addison Rose, age 2, and in the hearts of those he loved: wife Kari Myrtle, brother Bryce Locke, mother Tammy Craw, father Craig Myrtle, his other mother Mary Jo Myrtle and many in-laws, nieces, nephews, friends and family too numerous to list but not forgotten. He is reunited with his sister Kyraa Locke, uncle Duane Myrtle, grandma Kathleen Myrtle and grandpa Louis Craw.
There will be a celebration of life in Maine and Washington for his friends and family to gather and recount some of their fondest memories, with details to come. Evan will always be deeply loved and sorely missed.
“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.” He meant so much to so many; please come share your stories.
