Evan Louis Cohen, 43, of Middletown, New Jersey, passed away peacefully on Friday, August 4, 2017 at Raritan Bay Medical Center in Perth Amboy, New Jersey. Evan was born on March 8, 1974 in Boonton, New Jersey. He grew up in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, and was graduate of Middletown High School South, Class of 1992. During his adulthood, Evan moved to Arizona for a period of time, before returning to New Jersey, where he settled in Middletown in approximately 2008. Evan loved all things "sports", but was especially an avid football, hockey, and wrestling fan. While living in Arizona, Evan's love for sports intertwined with his career, where he was the host of a sports talk radio show. He was also a great writer with a very quick wit; he had a funny, lighthearted personality and was known for his dry sense of humor.
He was predeceased by his mother, Kathleen (Campbell) Cohen.
