RIP Tony Evjenth
« on: October 01, 2011, 03:38:55 AM »
Ex Matix Teammanager gone Mountain man and overall super nice dude Tony E passed away.

I don't know the exact circumstances, but I think we should all be sad about a brother taken before his time.

so bummed, came out of nowhere.  tony lived in town and always was the nicest guy anytime I saw him skating or out at night.  He started WLLM not too long ago and would give shirts and stickers to anyone who was skating.  RIP.

Being a kind person was perfunctory for Tony. He was one of the most genuinely NICE people I've ever met.  This news was really disturbing and sudden.  RIP

he was the team manager of es when, in my opinion, they had the best team that skateboarding has ever had. i still remember that team photo of them against a kinda grayish brick wall when pj was fresh on the team.

so sad hearing that he passed away so early, but hearing that he was about to be a dad just takes it to a whole other level of sadness.

rest in peace.

I couldn't even bring myself to post in this for a couple days, just too sad. Tony E was a great guy. Totally remember the first time he came around when he had just gotten the job at ?S and was like a little puppy, just so hyped! Always cool to deal with, big smile. Took care of everybody. Saw him at Joe's FTC show a few months back, first time in a couple years. Glad I got to connect with him one last time. Rest in peace, Tony E. You will be remembered well.
