Date of Birth: October 27, 1925


Owen Glendower Evans, 92, of Hallowell, ME died peacefully in his sleep on August 30, 2018 at his home.

Glen (as he was known) was born October 27, 1925 in Villanova, PA to Rowland Evans and Elizabeth Wharton Evans (nee Downs). Glen attended the Haverford School and Yale University before serving in France during WWII. After the war he continued his education at Penn State earning a degree in Meteorological Science. A lifelong lover of weather, he kept records since the age of 12 and worked for the National Weather Service for over 30 years in offices in Alaska, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Maine.

Glen enjoyed the outdoors, hiking all the ME 4000 footers and the NH Presidential traverse with wife Ruth and son Warren. He loved snowstorms and was a world champion sled run builder. He cherished his time spent at Camp Bellevue on Upper Richardson Lake. He was smart, funny and kind and will be deeply missed.
