Randy Evans was the RMIMA President 2010-2011

Family of Randal Evans: Runner was 'beloved member' of Boulder community

The family of Boulder runner Randy Evans — who was found dead Wednesday after going missing last week — released a statement Friday calling Evans a "cherished" member of their family and the running community.

"The family of Randal Evans is shocked and deeply saddened to lose a cherished husband, son, uncle, friend and beloved member of the Boulder triathlon and running community," the family said in the statement. "Randal, a prominent Ironman triathlete, marathon runner and local coach, was known for his boundless energy and his ability to instill fellow athletes with a sense of achievement and purpose. He had an unparalleled appreciation for Boulder's natural beauty and the serenity of our community's running trails.

"Randal touched many with his enthusiasm and sense of humor. Friends say, 'He was an incredible soul — he motivated us to believe we could become better, stronger human beings, and because of him we are.' We are grateful for his time with us, no matter how brief."

Evans, 52, was found at 7:15 a.m. Wednesday by another runner near Cobalt Trail, just east of Broadway, north of the Boulder city limits. 
Evans' body was partially covered in snow, and investigators said it is likely he was there for several days before being found. There were no signs of foul play.  The Boulder County Coroner's Office will conduct an investigation to determine the official cause and manner of death.

Evans was a marathon athlete who was known to train at Dakota Ridge, near his north Boulder home on Zamia Avenue. He had been missing since the morning of Feb. 13, when, police said, he left home in jogging clothes and without a cell phone or wallet.

Boulder police Sgt. Tom Dowd said Evans was officially declared missing Monday and that various agencies had coordinated a trail search with a canine unit. Police first alerted the public of Evans' disappearance Tuesday evening.  Evans' family also released a statement thanking police for their search efforts.  "Randal's family wishes to thank the Boulder Police Department and the Boulder County Sheriff's Office, as well as the countless number of individuals who lent support during the past week," the family said in the statement. "The family respectfully asks for privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time and is not available for further comment. Funeral and memorial arrangements are pending."

  • Monthly Briefings and Lunch - From September to May, we offer monthly lunchtime events that give you access to experts who give you the tools you need to get promoted and succeed in your role as an IT manager.

  • IT Community - As an IT manager, it pays to be active in your community. Networking with RMIMA members at our outside events gives you the relationships you need to benefit from the experience of your colleagues in other industries.
  • Education - RMIMA is forward-thinking. We are aware that schools are not graduating students in IT as fast as IT professionals are retiring. Were are one of the few organizations that’s doing something about it. Through our Student Ambassador Program, we are reaching out to top students and we are partnering with the best colleges and universities in the area.

If you want to drive change in your organization, motivate your people, and get projects done on-time and on-budget, RMIMA is a great resource for you.

RMIMA meets for lunch on the second Thursday on the month from September through May.  Each meeting gives you time to network and to participate in a topical presentation.  Registration and networking is at 11:15, the speaker starts at 11:30 sharp, and lunch begins at noon.  This means you can be back to the office right after lunch.
