Eastlake City Councilman Kimberly C. Evers is being remembered this week following his June 15 death.
Evers was 64 and had been a resident of Lake County for more than 40 years.
“I was proud to call Kim my friend,” said Eastlake Mayor Dennis Morley. “He was always there for our city as a councilman, EPAL director and member of the Boulevard of 500 Flags (Committee).
“Whatever this city needed, Kim was there.”
Evers was born March 6, 1956, in St., Paul, Minn. He went on to serve in the U.S. Army and then had a career as an engineer before retiring.
He was currently serving as councilman and ran the Eastlake Police Activities League. He was a former coach of Eastlake sports leagues and former Boy Scout leader.
Evers was also an avid outdoorsman, loved hunting and fishing and also enjoyed bowling.
Morley recalled how every time Evers was in City Hall, he would poke his head into the mayor’s office and ask, “Hey, Denny. You need anything?”
“That is the Kim I will always remember,” Morley said. “Please keep Kim’s family in your thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace, my friend.”
A funeral mass for Evers will take place June 22 at 11 a.m. at St. Justin Martyr Church, 35711 Stevens Blvd. in Eastlake.
Morley noted City Council will have 30 days to select someone to fill Evers’ unexpired term. If a majority of council can’t agree on a replacement, Morley will fill it by appointment.
