ObituaryShare A Memory

John D. Evans, 88, passed away peacefully on January 1, 2018 at the Cottage in the Meadow. John was born on May 1, 1929 in Sherman Mills, Maine, the son of George and Doris (Morgan) Evans. He joined the military in 1948 and was stationed in New York where he met Air Force buddy, Gail Pearson. He followed Gail back to Seattle, where he resided until moving closer to his children in the Yakima area. John worked many years for the telephone company traveling all over the country for work. 

John was a family oriented person, he would travel to see his children and grandchildren any chance he got. He loved to travel with his family as well, he was someone that couldn’t hold still for too long, getting to a place and being on the move shortly after. John had a big sweet tooth, fueling up with apple pie and strawberry waffles with whipped cream any chance he got. 
John is survived by his six children, Scott (Donna) Evans, Terry (Mark) Mills, Christie (Randy) Treddenbarger, Becky (Ron) Neuman, Lisa (John) Maher, and Joni (Wayne) Hampson; 13 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren; brother in law, John Murphy, niece, Dara (Alan) Redden, and nephew, John Murphy Jr. He is preceded in death by his parents, and his sister, Dottie Murphy.
Private family services will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions can be made to Rexford Manor or the Cottage in the Meadow in care of Brookside Funeral Home (PO Box 1267, Moxee, WA 98936).
