Eight Bells: John Evetts:
John Evetts fought the fight but Alzheimer’s disease took him at 77 years on January 15, 2018. He leaves his wife and best friend Marion, his two sons Lloyd (Tara) and Alan (Deirdre), and friends and relatives in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
John came to Canada in the late sixties, finally arriving in Vancouver in 1970 where he set up his business, Alvis Marine, combining his training in mechanical engineering, his love of sailing and a slightly competitive instinct. Over the years he and his team built, repaired and modified countless boats.
