Old Orchard Beach, Maine
Dennett, Craig & Pate Funeral Home in Saco, Maine conducted the funeral arrangements for the family. There was a private viewing only for the family to grieve, without the conventional public rituals, out of respect for the dignity of our noble son and brother, and thus a solemn observance of Evan’s life and death was preserved.
Our family will hold an event for a private celebration of Evan’s life, subsequently, for our family and friends to express their love and sympathy for our irreparable loss.
EVAN C. KAPETANIOS, age 39, of Worcester, MA, died on May 26, 2017, at home in the family house in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, after a prolonged severe depression, despite consistent medical therapy.
Evan was born in Worcester, in 1977, where he grew up, the ever beloved son of Christos and Jean (Holoway) Kapetanios. In 1999, he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of Massachusetts–Amherst. After ten years of corporate America, Evan then attended and graduated, in 2010, from the French Culinary Institute in New York City as an Executive Chef having “successfully completed 600 hours of intensive training in Classic Culinary Arts”], a craft which he practiced with pride and relish, respectively, in Portland, Maine, New York City, and in Milan, Italy, where he married his best friend Paola, in 2011. Evan and Paola had their daughter, Stella Jean, in 2013. His daughter was the most precious part of his life; his motivation to become whole again; his mission, he said, was to live up the type of father he, himself, has had.
Evan is also survived by his parents; his sister Juliet Wile, married to Ken, living in New York, and her daughter Gillian McCourt; and his sister Natalie Meir, married to Jon, living in California, and their children Alex and Clara. As well, he is survived by his wife’s loving family in Italy. He leaves us all most
broken-hearted for the rest of our lives.
Despite his illness over the last few years, Evan was a joyful, kind, and caring person with many close friends everywhere, leaving his impact on everyone without exception. He was also exceptionally intelligent, extremely knowledgeable on all things, and helpful as can be. Everlasting be his memory!
