We would like to give our deepest condolences to the family of "McEvoy". He was more than just a AWESOME karate teacher. A man who taught us to live right, train hard and mentored us our whole lives. We are blessed to have known such a WONDERFUL, CARING, FUNNY and INFLUENTIAL man. Chucks first time meeting Mike, he was 14 and all the kids at school said he was a karate instructor. Classic McEvoy had on his polo shirt, blue jeans and running shoes and he said "that guy is cool". We started talking and I told him I did martial arts and he said he is starting a karate club at Moody and to meet him there next week. Chuck showed up 6 times and McEvoy never showed. On the 7th time he was there. 20 years later he told me he was watching me from his office to see if I really wanted to train. Fast forward almost 30 years later I'm still his karate student and now he teaches at my karate school. We will continue to carry on your values and teachings. Chuck will never forget the many times at school that McEvoy gave him lunch money to eat.
I'm gonna miss him talking about his adventures with Ben, food, training, Anne and the kids. And the after karate Arby's trips. We love you guys!!!!!!
Pam & Chuck Thornton
