ORLANDO, Fla. – Today, CFO Patronis issued a statement following the news of the passing of former State Senator Greg Evers.
 
CFO Patronis said, “My family and I are deeply saddened to learn the news of Senator Evers’ passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones tonight.
 
‘I’ve known Greg for many years, and there’s no one who fought harder for his principles or for the people of Northwest Florida than Greg Evers. He truly believed in the value of hard work, and nothing was more important to him than his family, public service, and his North Florida farm. We served in the Florida House together, and I’m proud to have worked alongside him and called him a friend. Tonight, I join Florida in mourning his sudden and tragic loss.”
