I just received the following from IM Dr. Anthony Saidy:

“Washoe Hospital in Reno, Nevada just confirmed to me the death today, Nov. 15, 2010, of 5-time US Chess Champion Larry M. Evans, from complications of gallbladder surgery over two weeks ago. He is survived by his wife, painter Ingrid Evans, and two stepsons.”

Larry M. Evans was on born March 23, 1932. He won or tied for 1st at the U.S. Championship 5 times and the U.S. Open Chess Championship 4 times. He was also a prolific chess author and columnist.
