Don Evans

As owner and founder of Evans Insurance, Don is celebrating more than 30 years in business! Through the years he has built a strong and developed relationship with the logging and trucking industry, while also working with hundreds of community members on their personal insurance needs. Don's focus throughout the years has been on diligent customer service and an honest approach to business.  Whenever he finds time to be outside the office Don most enjoys spending his time up at the cabin on Long Lake. Whether it be fishing or even doing yard work, hearing the loons and other wildlife is what he enjoys most.
