Emerson Lambert Evans, "Emerson the Red", 25, of Barboursville, passed away Friday, May 24, 2013. Emerson was born Jan 9, 1988 in Bedford. He graduated from Murray High School in Albemarle County and was a student at Piedmont Virginia Community College. Emerson had a wry and sometimes irreverent sense of humor that would have everyone in the room laughing belly laughs. He enjoyed his time alone but he also enjoyed it when he could be with his friends and share his gifted sense of humor. Emerson's natural talent for making people laugh prompted him to begin working on material for a stand up comedy routine. He was an artist and painted bright narrative paintings full of characters inspired by dreams, books, and stories. He also loved printmaking and was excited about exploring the various techniques that printmaking offered. Emerson is survived by his father Bill Evans of Norfolk; his mother Donna B. Evans and his brother Simon A. Evans of Barboursville; grandmother Anne Etheridge; aunts Kim Evans, Laurie Cooper, Linda Hayes, Kathy Barnes; uncles Richard Barnes and Cliff Cooper; many cousins and friends. He is also survived by 2 very special people who were his second parents, Pat and Maria Marano. Emerson is also survived by his beloved dog Tuxedo. We are comforted by the belief that he is now home with his Papa and his dear friend Dan.
