Good Bye Evans…..

Evans Whilby was a very special person: Harvard PhD, CIGNA Vice President, Teacher, Consultant and Farmington Village Green and Library Association (FVGLA) Finance committee member.

I came to know Dr. Whilby at my first FVGLA Board meeting in November of 2007, where he came up and introduced himself with his captivating mater of fact smile coupled with that distinctive twinkle in his eyes.

Evans was just a great person: intelligent, accomplished, friendly and especially grounded in the importance of life and his love of the library. He stopped by often to pick up a book, visit, use the Internet and another activity. He was therefore, a very good barometer and advocate for outstanding library service here in Farmington.

I am stunned to learn of Evans passing last week and will miss him, a good man who left us too soon.

Good Bye Evans, I shall always remember you…
