Doug Evans, good friend, beloved father, hot rod enthusiast, bad-ass bass player and co-founder of Didjits died on 12/28/16 in the company of his partner and friend Merilee Kuchon (aka Bun E. Bread).
Doug did not have a Will so Merilee is shouldering a huge amount of responsibilty in dealing with the details of Doug's passing as well as helping to comfort his children. Specifically she, and Doug's kids, will be using these finances to pay for:
-venue rental for the Illinois memorial
-any and all supplies needed to publicize the memorials in Illinois, Texas & California
-any unexpected autopsy and medical bills
-airfare for her and Doug's children to attend the memorials
-grief counseling & management for her and Doug's children
We were unsure of what the monetary goal for Doug's Go Fund Me should be because so many details of possible medical expenses are still up in the air. So, if a $10,000 goal seems like too much, rest assured that all donations will go towards Doug's funeral arrangements with any surplus going to his kids. All expenses will be itemized on this page so donors will be aware of where the funds were finally allocated. These funds will be needed fairly soon as Bun E. and Doug's kids have already started planning the Memorial.
Bun E. will be in charge of all of the final expenses.
So, I just want to thank all donors in advance for your kindness in helping out Bun E. and the kids. The unexpected nature of his death has made this an extremely hard and emotional time for all of them. Doug was one of the most generous people I know and, I know he'd be heartbroken if he knew his passing had financially burdened his loved ones. He, like me, might have figured he was invincible--that 53 was young or that he'd still be kicking it at 80. Who needs to plan for dying? Pfffttt.........We'll all miss you Doug. We got your back.
