EVANOFF, Martin William-November 4, 1954 –May 10, 2012
With the love of his life holding his hand, Martin crossed the finish line after his longest and most challenging race. He will be sadly missed by his beloved wife and best friend, Sue; their children, Alex, Laura and Daniel Metrailler; his parents, Gloria and Bill; and his sister, Linda Popovich, brother-in-law Alex and nephew Philip.
