Bob Evans has died. A much picked place to eat out for my family. Thoughts and prayers for the Evans family. Just got this from the Governor’s office:

Columbus, Ohio ? Governor Ted Strickland today released the following statement on the loss of Southern Ohio native Bob Evans:

?Bob Evans was a true original,? Strickland said. ?His life?s work was bringing the warmth, hospitality and good food of Ohio to rest of the nation. I?ve appreciated the opportunity to know Bob personally and greatly admired his wit, his intellectual curiosity and his deep love for his native state. We here in Ohio are all proud of him, and we are all deeply saddened by his passing.?

We’d all do good to try to live up to what Bob said he wanted to do:

?When I leave this world, I want to leave it better than when I was here,? Evans said in an interview several years ago.
