JUDGE EVANS’ MEMORIAL SERVICE

Chancellor Frank McKenzie attended the memorial service yesterday in Raleigh for Circuit Judge Robert G. Evans. He sent his observations in the form of a comment to another post, and I though they should be on the front page, so they would not be missed.

Bob donated his body to the University of Mississippi Medical Center for medical research. His wife, who pre-deceased him, did the same.
Everyone I know who practiced in Judge Evans’ court spoke of it as a privilege and an enjoyable experience. If I could sum up all the comments, it would be “Trying a case before Judge Evans was what trying a case should be like.” His wit, integrity, demeanor, experience and fairness will be missed.
