Evan Granville of Hamburg, NY entered into rest on March 31, 2022 after a courageous battle to live. Evan was known for his easy-going personality, forever smile, great sense of humor and most of all, his love of family. He lived life to the fullest and was a very accomplished athlete in many sports.
Evan, throughout his life, had an insatiable appetite for history. His favorite period of time was the Civil War, especially the Battle of Gettysburg. Evan could share his education, life experiences, and research of Gettysburg, in detail. Turning the facts into a mystical journey.
He was in his glory when debating his professors and enlightening many around him. But most of all, just sitting around the campfire, chewing the fat with soldiers during his numerous attendances at the battle reenactments.
Evan travelled with his parents and siblings during his childhood and adolescent years to every Civil War battlefield. To illustrate his passion for those 3 days in July, 1863 he pleaded with his dad at the ripe age of 12 to get a tour guide. Finally, after his father relented, he asked, “Evan, why a tour guide?” Evan responded, “I want to see how many mistakes he would make!” In his 20’s and 30’s, Evan and his posse heard many of his debates and challenges and enjoyed many free libations at various establishments.
In 2012, Evan was to meet his “life partner,” Jenny White. In the following 10 years, they enjoyed many precious moments together. Traveling to places like Key West, Sandals, Naples and many more. Some of their excursions were even just trips to Ellicottville and the “Ridge.”
On September 3rd, 2019, their miracle happened. They would be blessed with a beautiful baby girl, Kennedy Fiona Granville. This commissioned a whole new journey as the three of them were inseparable. Evan enjoyed one of the simplest things in life such as their daily strolls to Haak’s Cakes.
After many memorable moments and hundreds of pictures. Evan got his birthday wish on July 2, 2021, to travel once again to Gettysburg. Here he shared his many points of interest of Gettysburg with the 2 ladies in his life.
