BILLINGS - Dave Evans made wishes come true.
Evans was a former law enforcement officer in Yellowstone County and a leading proponent of the Montana Hope Project, a non-profit dedicated to granting the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses.
Evans died recently after a brief battle with cancer. He is remembered as a kind and generous man who had a special place in his heart for all children.
"Dave lived and breathed the Montana Hope Project," the organization said in a statement following his death. "He was continually sharing our mission and going above and beyond for the families served in Eastern Montana. He was incredibly kind and there was no one more passionate. He has been an integral part of this organization since his start in 2012 and we will all miss his warm smile and kind heart. Sending love to all those missing Dave, as it is a very long list."
