Lynn Evans, president of the Florida Association of Governmental Fleet Administrators (FLAGFA) and fleet operations supervisor at Collier County, Fla., passed away unexpectedly on July 9. She was 58.

Evans was a 25-year employee of Collier County Government. In addition to being president of FLAGFA, Evans was a long-time active member of NAFA and several other professional organizations.

Evans will be missed by her industry peers. A statement issued by Dan Croft, fleet management director at Collier County, and Vicki Duval from the City of Coral Springs, said, “She was an organizer and manager with a strong work ethic that could always get the job done, one who understood the latest and greatest in technology (and would help you with it), an ‘instigator’ who could bring the gift of laughter to any situation, and a ‘friend’ in the truest sense of the word. She was one who, just by being seeing her in action, could make you realize that, ‘if you could dream it, you could do it.’ ”

Evans’ family will accept visitors at the Fuller Funeral Home in Naples, Fla., on July 15 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. A memorial service will be conducted at 5:30.

    Lynn,

    you were one of the very first I met that was not part of my organization shortly after I started...it seemed like every fleet event I went to you were always there...and if I didn't see you first, I would know you were there because I would either hear my name being yelled from across the room or see a lady charging me for hug. I only had the pleasure of knowing you for less than one year but you certainly left me with a lifetime of memories…and smiles. You will be missed!
