Richard “Rich” McEvoy ’53 was born in San Francisco and raised in Petaluma. He was the youngest of Richard Edmund McEvoy and Blanche Witherell’s three children. Rich was a Petaluma High School and SCU alumnus and served in the U.S. Army. He had a career in sales at various companies, the last being Allstate. Rich loved spending time with his family, coaching basketball, savoring his morning coffee at Denny’s and McDonald’s, weekend drives in his Datsun Roadster, and fly fishing at his family’s Sweetbriar retreat in Castella, California, which was his heaven on earth. A more committed Giants and Warriors fan would be hard to find. Rich passed away at home on Nov. 1, 2017 (All Saints Day), surrounded by his family. He was 87 years old. He is survived, missed, and loved by his wife, Marianna McEvoy. He was the beloved father of six children: Kevin McEvoy (Cindy), Margaret McEvoy (John deceased), Kathleen Wineger (Gary), Timothy McEvoy (deceased), Helen Clesen (Sean), and Anne Engler (Stephen); and loved spending time with his nine grandchildren: Erin, Kelsey and Ryan McEvoy, Tyler Wineger, Kayley, Matthew and Thomas Clesen, and Savannah and Zachary Engler. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.
