Martin Evelev passed away on May 12, 2017 in Longwood, FL. Martin was born in Reading, PA on September 22, 1930, the son of Yale and Deenie Evelev. He was educated at Drexel University and University of Pennsylvania Law School. He was employed for most of his career in the Office of General Counsel at Ford Motor Company, where his work focused primarily on international trade agreements and took him all over the world. Martin and his wife, Leila (who survives him), also traveled extensively for pleasure. Martin was a loving husband, and a kind and supportive father to his sons David (and his wife Laura) and John (and his wife Emma). Martin is also survived by grandchildren Natalie and Ben and Margaret, Louise and Sarah. He will be sorely missed, but we find consolation in knowing that he lived a rich and fulfilling life.
