Robert Lynn Evans a devoted husband, beloved father and wonderful friend to many, was called home to the Lord. After a long battle with cancer, Robert passed away on Wednesday January 10th 2018 at his home with his loving wife by his side, at the age of 58.
Weary of reading obituaries noting someone’s courageous battle with death, Robert wanted it known that he died as a result of being stubborn, refusing to follow doctor’s orders and raising hell for almost six decades. He enjoyed booze, cars, guns, and most of all the music scene.
Most of the friends he shared in this life, either met him through a friend because they needed their car worked on or they had their faces melted off by him performing on stage at some local venue.  The man had some serious talent when it came to playing the bass and he belted his heart out on stage for all to hear when he stepped up to the mic.
We have watched him perform so many different genres over the years whether it be jazz, blues, country music, bluegrass, or that good ole rock and roll.  The man could literally turn on the radio, pick up a bass, and start playing right along with it.
There is so much more to say but to put it simply, those who knew him, knew him.
He was REAL…  a man of his word.  A little too blunt for some maybe, but there was no question, he let you know what was on his mind without beating around any bushes.
A dear friend of his stated he remembered Robert as being, “the big prickly SOB, with the big heart under the bluster, who was always the guy to have in your corner.”
Preceded in death by his mother Lometta Laverne Evans, his father Dale Eugene Evans, brother James Randall Brownell, and sister Terresa Diane Calderon.
Those left behind to cherish Robert’s memory are his loving wife of twelve years Lucy Evans, his son Jason Robert Evans, two daughters Candace Rae Burnes and Deanna Kay Elliot.  Robert was stepfather to Catherine Leveck and Nathaniel Leveck.  He was grandfather to several grandchildren which he loved dearly.  Robert also leaves behind his four brothers Charles Eugene Brownell, Donald Eugene Young, Kenneth Michael Evans, Darryl Glenn Evans, his two sisters Lori Angelene Genther and Carolyn Racine Meyer.
Anderson Bethany has been entrusted with arrangements for Robert.
