Evan Zupich, 28, of Williamsport, formerly of Lickingville, died unexpectedly at work on the morning of July 25, 2012. Cause of death is yet to be determined. Evan is survived by his loving wife and soulmate, Tracy (Towner) Zupich; parents, Paul and Penny Zupich; and grandparents, Bernice Zupich and Betty Anderson. Evan was a 2003 graduate of North Clarion High School. He served his country in the 82ndAirborne; earned the rank of sergeant, and did tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He subsequently earned a construction management degree from Penn College, and was employed as an operations manager at Mountain Supply and Service. Evan loved life. His upbeat and spontaneous personality made him a delight to be around. He enjoyed working-out, riding his motorcycle, kayaking, hiking, running with his little dogs, frequenting the firing range, and road trips with his wife; Evan enjoyed politics, religion and philosophy, but most of all, he loved his friends. Evan's friends were of the highest caliber; they range from the venerable old man to the young enthusiast. He was considered a brother and son to many.
