Evan J. Shugats

Evan John Shugats, entered into rest on July 19, 2021. Born March 3, 1990, he was the very loved son of Carol (Paul) Fournier and John (Mary-Jo) Shugats. His sister Heather (Brett) Rhinehart adored him, as did his nieces, Taylor, Sydney, and Bella; and nephews, Peyton and Reggie. Evan was the stepbrother of Joshua (Hiesha) Pinkston and Katherine Pinkston. The beloved grandson of Helen Zimmerman and the late Fred Zimmerman, and the late Joseph and Rosemary Shugats, he also leaves behind many dear aunts and uncles. Evan cherished all of his cousins who he had very close relationships with.

Evan was a graduate of Medialle College with a Bachelors Degree in Communications and was employed by Buffalo Fuel Corporation. He was an avid Bills fan who enjoyed hockey and Nascar and always rooted for Kevin Harvick. Evan was at a point in his life where he finally felt happy with all the great things he had going on, and part of that was his girlfriend Kendra Wind, who he loved so much. 

Evan will be remembered as an extremely kind and loving person who adored his family and friends. He was loved by so many people who will miss him forever. In honor of Evan, wear your Bills gear when you come to call.
