Obituary for Mark M. Evenski

SEYMOUR, CONNECTICUT: Mark M. Evenski, age 64 of Seymour passed away peacefully on September 17, 2018 - his guitar gently wept. He leaves his sister and friend Maureen Baldino (Bruce) and was predeceased by his dear parents Ziggy and Gladys Evenski and brother John Evenski. He was a cherished uncle of Tori and Mike Adamczyk and uncle/friend of Jeremy Baldino.
As a true artist, Mark was a character who marched to his own beat. His life was his music… if he wasn’t writing songs, singing or playing guitar or piano he was reading about artists he loved. He had an extensive collection of rock memorabilia, concert ticket stubs and t shirts.
He leaves thousands of cassette tapes; all of his gigs and bootleg tapes made by taping a microphone to the brim of one of the many baseball hats he always wore. He loved Hit Parade and Rolling Stone and saved years of issues.
Mark's lifelong friends created music together for decades until the last jam session at CT Hospice, where they came together to celebrate his life and songs. Whatever life sent his way, he wrote about it…songs of love, loss and sometimes just pure nonsense. They changed band names too frequently to list.
Mark worked at Branford Hills where he met many kindhearted and cherished friends.
Daily he read the New York papers and played the lottery in the hope of winning big. He was an avid pen collector and enjoyed sharing them with friends. He constructed genius creations with cardboard, duct tape and newspapers. His beloved pets had crazy nicknames but their formal names were Wilma, Allison, Shadow, Sunny and RDJ.
A Memorial Mass of Christian will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 22, 2018 at the Church of the Good Shepherd, 135 Mountain Road, Seymour. There are no calling hours. Interment will be private in St. James Cemetery, Naugatuck. Contributions in his memory can be made to #smilowrocks to carry on the creative expression at Smilow Cancer Hospital that he and John inspired. The Ralph E. Hull Funeral Home, 161 West Church Street, Seymour is entrusted with the arrangements. To share a memory online, please only go to www.hullfh.com
