Evan Granville of Hamburg, NY entered into rest on March 31, 2022 after a
courageous battle to live. Evan was known for his easy-going personality, forever
smile, great sense of humor and most of all, his love of family. He lived life to the
fullest and was a very accomplished athlete in many sports.
Evan, throughout his life had an insatiable appetite for history. His favorite period
of time was the Civil War, especially the Battle of Gettysburg. Evan could share his
education, life experience, and research of Gettysburg, in detail turning the facts
into a mystical journey.
He was in his glory when debating his professors and enlightening many around
him. But most of all, just sitting around the campfire, chewing the fat with soldiers
during his numerous attendances at the battle reenactments.
Evan travelled with his parents and siblings during his childhood and adolescent
years to every Civil War battlefield. To illustrate his passion for those 3 days in
July, 1863 he pleaded with his Dad at the ripe age of 12, to get a tour guide.
Finally, after his father relented, he asked. Evan, why a tour guide? Evan
responded that he wants to see how many mistakes he would make! In his 20’s
and 30’s Evan and his posse heard many of his debates and challenges and
enjoyed many free libations @ various establishments.
In 2012, Evan was to meet his “Life’s partner”, Jenny White. In the following 10
years, they enjoyed many precious moments together. Traveling to places like Key
West, Sandals, Naples and many more. Some of their excursions were even just
trips to Ellicottville @ the “Ridge”.
On September 3 rd , 2019 their miracle happened. They would be blessed with a
beautiful baby girl, Kennedy Fiona Granville. This commissioned a whole new
journey as the three of them were inseparable. Evan enjoyed one of the simplest
things in life such as their daily strolls to Haak’s Cakes.
After many memorable moments and hundreds of pictures, Evan got his birthday
wish on July 2, 2021, to travel once again to Gettysburg. Here he shared his many
points of interest of Gettysburg with the 2 ladies in his life.
Evan is survived by his soul mate Jenny White, Dear father of his precious Kennedy
Granville. Son of Patrick and Priscilla (Weathers) Granville. Brother of Ryan
(Melisa) Granville and Amy (Derek) Grove. Loving uncle to Kelly, Zach, Brennan
and Grace. Grandson of the late Lawrence and Marjorie (Miller) Weathers and the

cousins and friends.
