Former Idaho Gov. John V. Evans has died at age 89. Evans, a Democrat, served as Idaho’s governor from 1977 to 1987, first moving up from lieutenant governor to succeed Cecil Andrus when he was named U.S. Secretary of the Interior, and then winning election twice in his own right in 1978 and 1982. He was the first, and thus far only, LDS church member to be elected governor of Idaho. Evans was the grandson of the founder of Idaho-based D.L. Evans Bank and served as the bank’s president, still attending board meetings until his death, the Twin Falls Times-News reported/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.
