Evan's girlfriend and mother of his 2 children, Kylie, is devastated for their two sons, ages 1 and 4. They loved and idolized their daddy, as young boys do.

Evan's mother is also having a hard time dealing with the tragic loss. She lost a friend to a similar accident years ago and had always been fearful of her son's work. She is having a memorial bench put in at the Boone County Fairgrounds because Evan loved the fair so much.
