The Evan Dwyer ~ $300 Book Scholarship Requirements

He adored butterflies and was able to catch them in his hands. He enjoyed his last summer at Ellis Haven Campground in Plymouth. His favorite adventure story was “Peter Pan.” He was born in Quincy, where he lived all his life. He is survived by his parents, Michael J. Dwyer of the Quincy Fire Department and Gina (Zero) Dwyer; a brother, Joseph and a sister Kelsie.
My Friend Evan Dwyer
Evan Dwyer was one of the first friends I made at Montclair School. We were in first grade and in the same class and I will always remember how nice he was to me. He was a quiet boy but all the kids seemed to want to be his friend. I think that I am very lucky to have known Evan and to be able to say he was my friend. I will always remember Evan and so will many other people who knew him and knew how strong and special he was. ~Jillian O’Leary
