John Evans, an English climber who has often worked with the National Park Service in the Alaska Range, died on April 28th while rock climbing in Wales. John was accessible, easygoing, and competent. As a ranger up on Denali, it was always a pleasure to interact with him. His people skills were unparalleled, he always made me feel comfortable, and he had a kind and solid attitude which conveyed that he was someone who could be trusted. Best, John, on your journey!
