Special thanks to Woodland Hills Assisted Living for their great care and compassion over the last two years.
Our deepest sympathy to Uncle Andy. We will never forget his dancing, story telling and practical jokes. I’ll always remember his love of seafood, especially coming to visit us in Baltimore for steamed crabs. He enjoyed life and loved to have a good time. His love for his family and his interaction with his siblings, especially his sisters will never be forgotten. We’ll truly miss him. Love, nephews Mark Zivkovich, Tony Zivkovich and niece Mary Carolyn Zivkovich.
Becky and Christopher, so sorry for your loss. God Bless Shelley Sadler Greenlief
Our heartfelt condolences and sympathy.

To the family of Andy Evano, from the family of his Assistant Lead Man Stanley Tuchalski, we are saddened to read of the passing of our father’s good friend and co-worker, even as we are delighted to read that he spent “many and happy years” after retirement enjoying his family and watching his grandchildren grow. Our father had tremendous respect for Andy and valued his leadership on the job and his friendship at all times. They shared a large part of their working lives together in the Mill, and shared many quality times out and about in the community and at family gatherings. I’m sure “Stas” was among those ready to great him when Andy answered God’s call home. May God continue to bless our friend Andy Evano and everyone who loves him!
