May 5, 1945 — March 30, 2020


Henry “Hank” McEvoy, 74 of Wausau, passed away on Monday, March 30, 2020 at the Stoughton Hospital.

He was born on May 5, 1945 in Evanston, IL to the late Richard and Ruth (Hansen) McEvoy.  On July 21, 1967 he married Janet Buchanan in Elgin, IL.  Hank earned a Master’s degree in teaching, and taught at the Elgin High School and the Kimball Junior High School for 23 years prior to moving to the Wausau Area. He worked at Berlin School and retired from John Muir Middle School after 17 years in the Wausau School District. He also coached football and basketball during his time there, a job he truly enjoyed.  Following his retirement, he enjoyed fishing and boating with his family at their summer home in Phelps.  Hank loved being a dad to his five children.  He also enjoyed woodworking and construction - even building four of their family homes.  He had a wonderful singing voice, and enjoyed time spent singing at church.
