As a big brother he was the best. Ornery sometimes loving most of the time. He most definitely will be missed. We love you!
My condolences to the Evans family prayers to the family🙏🏻
Remembering all the fishing we did together, and hunting, but mostly it’s because of my uncle’s teachings, that to this day I can read a river and tie a knot without batting an eye about it.
I was eleven when dad came into my life. He was my safe place from my mother. He taught me hard work would always pay out. Loved going to Kamas and visiting Aunt Vickie. Riding Tippy with Corey Don and him. Dad would take me snowmobiling, fishing and hunting. He taught me to drive and to go four wheeling in his old international truck. . Dad could tell the best jokes. Enjoyed going to his favorite place to go riding the UTV at blue lake. He loved going to Golden Coral. After he retired he came and worked with me at Steel Coatings for 3 years. It was great to see his smiling face each day. He was a grandparent to my kids. He gave them all interest in guns, hunting and fishing with all his stories. He will be missed. I Love you dad. You will not be forgotten.
