Help Evan's Family After Their Tragic Loss

Donation protected
We are devastated to share the heartbreaking news of the loss of our beloved Evan Backers, a loving husband, father, and provider. Evan tragically lost his life in a plane crash on Tuesday, November 14, in a remote area of Utah County. Evan was just 26 years old and had a bright future and career in aviation ahead of him.

Evan was known for his passion and commitment to his family. He was a devoted husband and father, leaving behind his loving wife, Alexis, their 16-month-old son, Emmett, and another baby expected in April 2024. His family was the center of his world, and he loved them more than anything else. As the main financial provider for his family, Evan's passing has left them facing unimaginable grief and financial challenges.

In honor of Evan's memory and to support his wife, Alexis, and their children during this incredibly difficult time, we have initiated this fundraising campaign. All donations will go directly to Alexis to help provide for Emmett and the upcoming addition to their family.

The loss of Evan has left a void that can never be filled, but together, we can ease the financial burden that Alexis and her children now face. Every contribution, no matter the amount, will make a significant difference in their lives. 

Please consider donating and sharing this campaign with your friends and network. Your generosity and support will help Alexis and her children as they navigate the future without Evan, a loving husband, father, and friend.

With heartfelt gratitude,

The Backers Family
