Evan Anthony Franklin Obituary
Born December 8, 1982, Evan Anthony Franklin passed away on Wednesday, May 17, 2017. He is survived by his wife, Madison Franklin, his daughter, Christina Franklin, his mother, Kerry Franklin, his father, Eustace Franklin, his sister, Kara Franklin, and his extended and multi-national family.
Raised in this beachside community, Evan attended Lincoln Elementary, Parras Middle School, and Redondo Union High.
Although his life here was very short, Evan made an impact on his family and friends. He also served in the Peace Corps in Morocco. Evan was often the one to teach children how to do something for the first time – ride a bike, find a constellation, swim, etc. It was not uncommon for Evan to have a child hanging from his strong shoulders. In times of conflict, Evan took everyone's side and brought humor to the resolution of the conflict. He was fiercely loyal and devoted to his friends.
Evan was an avid reader of books on science and philosophy. He earned a B.A. degree in Philosophy at San Diego State University, where he was a proud Tau Kappa Epsilon brother. A man of many talents, Evan was at home dancing on stage, making tackles on the football field, and singing in a church choir.
Evan was a humanitarian. While in the Peace Corps in Morocco, Evan organized and delivered reading glasses to children.
In the U.S. Army, Evan served as a Specialist and Combat Medic.
The funeral service will be held at Halverson Stone & Myers on May 29, 2017.
