Dear Dave and Gary: Your father will be missed but not forgotten. His influence upon my life, as well as that of many others, was profound. Those of us that were fortunate enough to be with Ev through our scouting careers learned well the value of teamwork while at the same time developing our own sense of independence and self reliance. With Ev's assistance skills were developed that served us well as we grew into young adults. We learned how to define a task and then how to get it done. We also learned how to have a good time and enjoy the company of others. Your father will always remain an inspiration.
