Quick, Evan Gordon

Evan Gordon Quick

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Evan Gordon Quick. Evan passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, September 13, 2023, surrounded by family. He was predeceased by his parents Edward and Joan Quick. Evan is lovingly remembered and survived by his wife of 34 years, Luanne, son Graham, daughters Leah and Andrea (Jon), his sister Pamela Smith, as well as his nephews and niece.

Evan was born on December 2, 1950 in Regina, Saskatchewan. He attended Davin Elementary School before moving on to Luther College High School where he was part of the school’s 1968 provincial championship basketball team. Evan attended both the University of Regina and University of Saskatchewan. He graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a BFA, Honours cum laude in 1976.

Evan began work with Air Canada in 1977 where he remained for 35 years. His work with Air Canada provided a means for him to travel the world, ultimately visiting over 50 countries. His favourite destination was London, England where he would spend time visiting with family and friends, exploring its history (particularly that of the two world wars), and revisiting its treasured art and culture. Evan also enjoyed extensive travel with his wife and children, as time spent with family was his greatest joy.

Evan embraced new challenges with enthusiasm and always welcomed the opportunity to make new friends. In 2007 he became extensively involved in fundraising for the Arthritis Society through the Joints in Motion program. He completed numerous treks, including Mount Kilimanjaro, Everest Base Camp and the Inca Trail in Peru. He raised substantial funds for the charity and established enduring friendships with fellow trekkers.

Upon retirement Evan returned to his passion of ceramic sculpting. Most of his days were spent in his studio at Flatlands, an artists’ co-op in Regina. An upcoming two-man show titled “Mud Matters” will feature recent works of Evan and Charley Farrero at the Saskatchewan Craft Council Gallery in Saskatoon from July 13, 2024 to September 7, 2024.

A Celebration of Life will be held later this fall. In lieu of flowers, donations in Evan’s memory may be made to your preferred charity.

My condolences to you Luanne and family on Evan’s passing. Evan was such a beautiful person. Although we never had the chance to go on a trek together because of his illness, we spent many hours walking up and down Wascana Trails conditioning for our Treks with the Arthritis Society. I can still see him dragging that tire behind him. And the huge garage sales-he would accept people’s discards and turn them into funds for the Arthritis Society. I will miss our coffee times reminiscing about our treks and the people we met. RIP my friend.

Evan was my favourite cousin but actually was like a brother to me. We had such a great relationship over so many years.. His trips to England were always a chance to share stories over a beer. Our sense of homours were definitely on the same page. We both loved Monty Python and Gary Larson the far side. Oh and the Beatles. I never had to try with Evan. I could pick up with him anywhere anytime as if we had spoken yesterday. He called the day before he passed to say goodbye. Not goodbye he said just farewell. Miss you Evan.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to Luanne and her family. Evan was an interesting, unique and very talented individual, he was instrumental in getting me into the art world, and I thank him for that. Dean and I send prayers of comfort your way, he will be missed.

My sincere condolences to Luanne and Family on the passing of Evan. Evan and I shared many conversations and discussions from Leonard Cohen to global events and politics. He was truly a man of deep thought and knowledge, having had so many world-wide experiences. I will miss having him as a neighbour, and all our Wascana Ridge driveway chats.

Please accept my sincere condolences on Evan’s passing. I knew him for a very long time - first at Davin, then at Luther, here and there around town, and finally at the AirCanada check-in desk at the Regina airport when our schedules coincided. We always exchanged a few kind words and acknowledgment of our shared Regina history. He was a wonderful guy and I know he will be greatly missed by all.

My sincere condolences to the Quick family, this news was very saddening. I first met Evan in the summer of 2008 when he was assigned to be my roommate and tent mate for the Arthritis Society JIM Kilimanjaro trek. We arrived in Africa seriously jetlagged and everyone was stressed over the strict weight limits for our packs and porter bags. I ended up forgetting some key gear on my bed in our room, namely t-shirts and underwear. Evan shared with me what little he had. We became fast friends right then and there, and went on to have many other great adventures with JIM and on our own. Iceland, the TMB trek in France, trekking in Slovakia with stops in Prague and Budapest and a wonderful road trip to the US to see Fallingwater and Gettysburg. I will miss Evan dearly, we shared the same slightly dark sense of humour. Safe travels my friend, I'll see you down the road for a pint.

Evan and I were friends at Luther College, and at Univ of Sask after that. We saw each other when he passed through Chicago on some of his many amazing treks. I never really understood the value of the Art Institute or the Frank Lloyd Wright homes until I went with Evan. He had an enormous love and appreciation of art. Truly this is a very sad moment. My sincerest condolences to Evan's family. Rest in peace my friend.
