Congressman Lane Evans
It is with great sorrow that we morn the loss of our friend Lane Evans.

"Lane was a dear friend. He left larger than life foot prints as a Midwest Populist having fought tirelessly for his district, for veterans and for the those without a voice until Parkinson's Disease would let him fight no more.

Lane will be sorely missed by us all. Lane shunned the trappings of Congressman and was by choice known as "Lane" to everyone."

Funeral arrangements for former U.S. Rep. Lane Evans are as follows:

 * Visitation will be from 12 noon-6:00 p.m. at Esterdahl Mortuary (6601-38th Avenue in Moline) on Saturday & Sunday, November 8 & 9. 

* Funeral will be at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, November 10, at Sacred Heart Church (1608-13th Street in Moline).

With Deepest Sympathy,

Doug House

Rock Island County Democratic Party Chairman
