Obituary Condolences

CANDARAS Evanggelos Speros, 58 years old, famously known as "L.A." by his friends and Evan by his family was called safely home to Paradise on Thursday, June 5, 2008, in Teaneck, New Jersey, after a heroic battle with cancer. Evan was born in Brooklyn, New York, on December 17, 1949, to Ethel and Speros Candaras and came to live in Teaneck, New Jersey as a one-year old. He attended Longfellow Elementary School, Thomas Jefferson Junior High School and Teaneck High School. Evan will be remembered for his mechanical genius and his wonderful sense of humor. Evan loved nothing better than to be in his Oakland home working on his motorcycle and model airplanes or spending time with his son, neighbors, and friends. He is survived by his beloved son, Jason Candaras, of Fair Lawn, his loving sister, Senator Gale Candaras of Wilbraham, Massachusetts, and her husband, Professor Arthur Wolf, Esq., his nephew, Evan A. Coppola, Esq. of South Burlington, Vermont, his former spouse and friend, Alice Candaras, and her family, all of Fair Lawn.
