Evan represents the third generation of the Calvert name in the funeral industry, following in the footsteps of his grandfather, Larry, and father, Alex.

Evan loves Bloomington-Normal, especially the wide array of good restaurants, amazing golf courses, and the friendly families that comprise these communities.
