Mark A. EvensonMark A. Evenson, 69, passed away on September 19, 2014, after a long battle with cancer. His final days were spent in his home being cared for by his devoted wife and family.

He was an extreme sports enthusiast and loved golf, bowling, fishing, and if he wasn’t actively playing one of those, then he was watching them on TV. He loved watching his favorite teams, the Brewers, Packers or Badgers.

He will be remembered by all his family and many friends for his great sense of humor and infectious laugh. He was very proud of his 300 game bowled at Hartland Bowl, and his hole-in-one, which he shot at Paganica Golf Course, his home away from home.

Mark worked at Walgreens as a store manager in the Oconomowoc store and celebrated a total of 37 years with Walgreens.

He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 31 years, Barbara L., in 2004. They were long time residents of Wisconsin. He was also preceded in death by his brother Ole J. (“OJ”) Evenson in 2002.

Mark is survived by four children, Tami (daughter) and Michael Giovinazzo of Texas; Debbie Cendejas (daughter) of California; Don Mabry (son) and Lisa Marie of California; and Brad Evenson (son) and Jenny of Hales Corners. He is also survived by five grandchildren; his sister Mary Hahn of Germantown; brother Ted Evenson of Muskego; sister-in-law Sharon Evenson of West Allis; and many nieces and nephews.

He remarried in September of 2008 to Peggy Germinaro Zvers, and added four more stepchildren: Mitzi (Germinaro) and Paul Doolen of Milwaukee; Keli (Germinaro) and Kevin McKenna of Germantown; Rob Germinaro and Kelsey of Minnesota; and Jim Germinaro of Minnesota. The marriage also added 10 more grandchildren.
