Jack S. Evans, 42, director of business development

Jack Stanton Evans, director of business development for Hanover-based Computer Sciences Corp. and an ardent supporter of indoor lacrosse and hockey teams, died Friday at his Ellicott City home after an eight-month battle with cancer. He was 42.

Born and raised in Palmyra, Pa., Mr. Evans graduated from the University of Massachusetts in 1980. He took a job in New York working for Control Data Corp. before moving to Baltimore in 1991. He worked as the government relations coordinator for GTECH Corp. in Baltimore before joining Computer Sciences in 1997.

He was an avid street hockey player, teaching neighborhood children the game and in-line skating, and seldom missed a game of the Baltimore Thunder professional indoor lacrosse team.

Cancer was first diagnosed in Mr. Evans in 1995, and he had a tumor removed from his chest. The cancer went into remission, but in 1998, just two months after his marriage to Jennifer J. Moore, doctors at Johns Hopkins Cancer Center found a cancerous tumor in his brain.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his parents, George A. and Betty J. Evans of Annville, Pa.; two sisters, Jill V. Krystone of Shavertown, Pa., and Jan L. Koehler of Homberg, Germany; a brother, Richard C. Lear of Harrisburg, Pa.; and eight nieces and nephews. The date for a memorial has not been set.

Norman R. Sachs, a Baltimore-born pharmacist, died Thursday of Parkinson's disease at the Virginia Beach Rehab Center in Virginia. He was 80.

He enlisted in the Navy in 1941, and served aboard the USS California.

In 1949, he and his wife moved to Norfolk, Va., where he was for many years secretary of the Tidewater Pharmaceutical Association and manager of the People's Prescription Center.

Services will be held at 2 p.m. today at the Great Neck Chapel at the Hollomon-Brown Funeral Home in Norfolk.

In addition to his wife, Mr. Sachs is survived by a son, Donn F. Sachs of Bealeton, Va.; a sister, Irene Benesch of Timonium; a brother, Bernard M. Sachs of Glyndon; three grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
