Obituary of Scudder J. Evans
Scudder Jameson Evans, 28, of Marlborough, CT passed away suddenly on February 14, 2022. He was born May 10, 1993 in Hartford, CT to Kip B. and Sarah S. Evans. He attended RHAM for the majority of his education, but ultimately graduated from New Haven Adult Ed. Scudder was a registered organ donor, People to People Student Ambassador alumnus, and was taking cybersecurity classes. He enjoyed watching sports and was a fervent New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox fan. He spent many years playing baseball, football, lacrosse, and basketball. He loved to snowboard, which endlessly irritated his extended family of committed skiers. Scudder also loved sailing the New England coast with his family every summer while growing up. He loved to travel and had hoped to go on a Safari. He was an avid gamer and, like his father, tinkered with electronics. Scudder was also a passionate 1990s rap and hip-hop fan, and had a sense of style that reflected these influences. Like so many others, Scudder struggled with opioid use disorder and was constantly tested with unpredictable life events that played a role in compromising his sobriety. Scudder found success in completing high school while at Turnbridge, New Haven and meaning in a community service program by delivering furniture to families in need. Scudder often spoke of how he loved seeing the children’s reactions as they received these basic items typically taken for granted.
He leaves behind his mother Sarah Scudder Evans and sister Bree Auld Evans. He also leaves behind his great uncle Brent E. Scudder, aunt and uncle Linda and Jack Casey, aunts Caroline Scudder and Cheryl Otton, and numerous cousins. He was predeceased by his father Kip B. Evans, all four grandparents, uncle Timothy T. Scudder, and his beloved dog Dutch. The family thanks the Hartford HealthCare Medical Group at Windham Hospital Wound Care Center as well as long-term recovery centers Turnbridge, New Haven and Seabrook House, New Jersey for their care, efforts and continued support of Scudder and the continued on-going support to his family. The family also thanks the many compassionate, dedicated, and supportive first responders who have come to Scudder’s and the family’s aid in times of need. Their professionalism is unparalleled.
