Son of Thomas and Joan Evans, brother to Suzy and Antoinette. College student. Loved tropical fish, science, photography and writing. He was an excellent public speaker. Intelligent, handsome and witty, he was considered the golden boy of the family. He was shot on the evening of 6/12/74 while working part time as a taxi driver to put himself through college. Passed away on 6/15/74 at the age of 25.
Here are some good things I remember about my brother:
He was a great amateur photographer, a great public speaker with a wonderful speaking voice. He played drums. One of his main hobbies was tropical fish. He tied in his photography with the fish hobby by taking still photos as well as film of fish. He helped me with math, just like me he had a sick sense of humor, we both liked to go barefoot, he loved our pets, we went to a Johnny Winters concert on my 21st birthday, he gave me my nickname "Suzy".
A Story About Sam: An older man with an obviously big ego was trying to impress my brother and told Sam that he could kill him with just one finger. Sam quickly replied "I'll have to remember that next time I'm in a knife fight."
Sam used to name his cars. He had a blue Karmann Ghia named Leroy. I remember it had a sticker on the dash that said "panic button". He had a white Dodge Station Wagon, which was the family car at one time - year I think 1964 - that was named Moby Dick.
Sam and I were raised by our mother and step-father so Sam was also known under the name of Samuel Charles Costanzo.

A lot of my family were cab drivers in a small town. My heart goes out to the family. Sam's picture reminds me of innocent times gone by like "Leave it to Beaver." May you forever rest in peace.|
