Evan Kelton Klukan
Ford City

February 8, 1989, was a great day.  That is the day Evan let out his first cry, announcing to the world that he had arrived.  Until his final breath, he never quit crying out.  It wasn't of pain and suffering, but a continual cry of joy and happiness.  Sure, there were some moments of sadness and sorrow; but for the most part, "World...here I am, and I want to live life to the fullest."  And he did.  Evan played sports, fished and hunted, and had good friends, both male and female.  He bore a mischievious and infectious smile that had a little bit of devilment in it, accompanied by a glint in his eye.  He was a personality to know. 

He has helped people in his profession as a nurse, which show his compassionate attitude toward others.  He helped those recovering from addiction, as he knew their pain and suffering firsthand, having recovered from the shackles of addiction himself.  He loved, laughed, and cried.  He was a father, husband, brother, nephew, cousin, son, and grandson.  Evan could get totally involved in the deepest conversation, and he could also be as silly as a goose.  Yes, he would upset mom and dad along the way; but most boys will do that.  It is in their makeup. 

"All boy" transpired into "all man."   A son who loved his parents.  A father who loved his son.  Yes, Evan was someone to know, admire, and love.  He went home on May 25, 2017.  We will never forget him.  He is an imprint on our hearts.

Evan is survived by his mother, Amy Jo Cairns; his father, Jonathan Klukan; step-father, Donnie Finkelstein; grandparents, Mike (Linda, deceased) Klukan and Keith and Nancy Mangus; son, Nathaniel, and his mother, Alissa Sabatula-Klukan, and Jordan; brother, Sgt. Justin Klukan and wife, Asia; and nephew, Caleb.  Also surviving is a step-sister, Jennifer (Thomas) Muse.  He is also survived by numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

A memorial celebration of his life will be held at a later date.  Arrangements are entrusted to the Welch Funeral Home, 1032 Fourth Ave., Ford City.

Evan was a good son-in-law, and good father. He always had a smile and hug for us. He will be missed by all who loved him. Like Nat says, he is an angle sitting in the clouds watching over us always.

Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal.
Love leaves a memory that no one can steal.

I am stunned and so sorry for your loss. I knew Evan from CRMC in Punta Gorda, FL and his smile was infectious, his care and compassion second to none. My thoughts are with you.

Dear Family:
Please accept our deepest condolences to your family for the loss of your loved one. May you be comforted by knowing that the Almighty God is close to the brokenhearted; he saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18) Our King Jesus Christ told us to pray for the Kingdom to come on earth in the Lord's Prayer. (Mathew 6: 10) That Kingdom will put an end to all of the pain and suffering we experience today. May the beautiful memories shared with your loved one along with knowing that we will be able to see our precious dead loved ones again in the near future when God's Kingdom rule over the earth grant you peace and comfort at this difficult time. (John 5:28,29)
Sincerest Sympathies,
The Webb Family
