Evan Wallace Mitchell, age 35, was born on August 22, 1987 to the late Thomas and surviving Julia (Turner) Mitchell. He is also survived by his older brother, Matthew, maternal grandmother Joan Turner and wife of 6 years, Lynn (Slupski) Mitchell.
He was baptized into the Catholic Church and grew up in Catonsville, Maryland. Evan attended St. Agnes Catholic School and graduated from Mount Saint Joseph High School in 2005. He studied Civil Engineering at the University of Maryland, graduating in 2014. He was so fond of the two engineering firms that helped him develop and grow as a professional. Co-workers from GLW and KCI Technologies mourn a talented perfectionist today.
In 2017, Evan wed the love of his life, Lynn, at Cattail Creek Country Club. They shared their lives with fur babies Rory and Birdie, black cats who stole their hearts and completed their family. Golf, Pac-Man, cooking shows, Reese's, and the color blue are among the favorite things they shared. Though he never quite stopped swinging a golf club in the house, Lynn cherishes every moment of laughing at Tom Segura and eating at Shake Shack for special occasions.
Please join us and gather with family and friends while wearing golf attire and/or blue in honor of Evan's favorite things on Saturday, August 26th, at 9:30 am. Father Mike Murphy will officiate a very hopeful, lively Celebration of Life at Rolling Road Golf Club, where Evan belonged, on the back patio he personally designed. It was one of his favorite places on Earth. Breakfast will follow.
The family wishes to extend special thanks to Ambrose Funeral Home who showed such respect and kindness in their hour of need.

His passing follows a long, brave battle with Substance Use Disorder. Before the world shut down due to Covid, Evan had thrived for more than a decade of sobriety. Though many were unaware of his struggle, he was a warrior who finally rests in peace.
