Evan Mitchell Rastatter


Evan Mitchell Rastatter of Eatontown, NJ passed suddenly in his sleep at his residence on March 21, 2017. Evan's accidental and untimely death took him too soon, at the tender age of 22.

Evan's charming and engaging personality is remembered fondly by so many. He was exuberant and charismatic, a fun-loving and cherished brother, son and friend whose loss is grieved by his sisters, Kristina and Lilyana, his parents, Allison E. Mitchell and Steven Rastatter of Eatontown, his entire family and his closest buddy, "Uncle" Terry Priadka who, along with "almost twin" sister Kristina, only 11.5 months apart, were Evan's best friends.

Evan attended Eatontown's Vetter, Woodmere and Meadowbrook Elementary schools, Memorial Middle School and Monmouth County Regional, graduating high school in 2014. Recently, he commuted daily from Elizabeth to Brooklyn where he worked a job he loved as Supervisor at a linen company.

A "Celebration of Life" ceremony will be held for Evan at the Unitarian Universalist Church at 1475 West Front Street in Lincroft, NJ at 1 pm on Saturday, April 8, 2017.

Evan had volunteered at dog groomers and the MCSPCA. A future career in dog training, including search and rescue, was one of the paths Evan had considered. One of Evan's younger cousins, Timmy, suffers from severe autism, for whom funds are now being raised to get a search & rescue/service dog. Contributions in Evan's memory are suggested to the MCSPCA or to

Growing up in Eatontown, Evan enjoyed basketball, soccer, skateboarding, biking, swimming and skiing with friends. He loved music, cars, video games and dancing. Evan took many holiday trips to Florida visiting loving grandparents, travelled to Dominican Republic as a service volunteer, vacationed in Mexico, and visited states around the country with his family, seeing sights from Niagara Falls to the Grand Canyon, a likeable kid meeting new people with smiles and hugs wherever he went. Evan was working to overcome adversities in his too short life and was on a hopeful path. He had a special, crazy way of making us all laugh. We miss him so, and pray for his beautiful soul to find peace, surrounded by the outpouring of love from all who met him, whether from years ago or even just the other day. Rest gently, Evan, dear soul, you are forever in our hearts, and we cherish the sweetest memories. Buckley Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
