Daer Anne & Family!
I am very sorry for your loss. I think of Coach often and speak of him every time I am with a fellow soccer player from Benedictine. So many great memories and quite a few painful ones too, but ones that make me proud for myself and all the guys on the team who worked so hard to accomplish and meet the goals coach set. Having graduated in 1980, I feel proud to say I was part of his success as Coach of the Year in 79 & 80. There's not enough space to write about all the funny, crazy and moving events that took place the three years I played for Coach, but all the guys who played know what I'm talking about. He was one of a kind and we will all miss hime. David Davenport -BHS "80"

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!!!!!!

Anne, Meghan and Aimee, You are and have been in my thoughts and prayers. I didn't realize what a truly great man Mike was until I read his obituary. I did know that he was a man with a great deal of compassion for his fellow man. Every time I saw him, he greeted me with a warm, welcoming smile. I am so very sorry for your loss! Lynn Jordan

In all my years of playing football, the hardest hit I ever received was from good ole # 32, Mike McEvoy. He played & led us with every ounce of energy in his body. He gave it all - ALWAYS! He lived his life admirably! All blessings to his beloved family & loved ones!

Anne, Meghan and Aimee,
We don't have the words to express how sorry we are for this great loss. Hold on to your faith and know that he is just a prayer away and above all else, he is in very good company. We love you.

"Coach" McEvoy coached both my girls in soccer two years ago, then last year worked with Madison at SBS. He left an lasting impression on my girls...thoughts and prayers are with the family of someone who touched so many!

Humorous memories of double dates in Mike's dad's Cadillac. Mike was a friend, teammate, classmate and fellow Company Commander. Rest in peace.

A few years ago Mike invited me to do some running with him, and I feel I am a better person for it. If you can hear me Coach,thank you!
