JANUARY 10, 1982-
AUGUST 5, 2002
On "Passions" first visit to the Emmys in May, 2000, I was lucky enough to be in their row as they came down to be seated. I got to meet almost 20 of the 25 actors on the show. I regretted that one of the few I did not get to see was Josh Ryan Evans. He brought a greatly unique character to life for three years. I enjoyed Timmy's many adventures with Juliet Mills and Ben Masters, however supernatural they were. He will be greatly missed by millions of fans. Goodbye Josh. Have some martimmys up there for us.
STATEMENT FROM NBC: Actor Josh Ryan Evans passed away on the evening of Monday, August 5 at a San Diego Hospital due to complications stemming from a long-time congenital heart condition. Evans was 20 years old. He is survived by his mother Cheryl, his father Chuck, his older brother James Evans and his grandparents Belle and Gene Riding. "We are deeply saddened by the sudden and tragic loss of Josh Ryan Evans. He was a truly unique talent with a remarkable spirit. He will be sorely missed by his 'Passions' family and by all of us at NBC." Josh Ryan Evans' final airdate on "Passions" was Monday, August 5. Upon receiving news of his passing, all future episodes of "Passions" were re-edited to remove any scenes including Evans' character "Timmy."
