Alfred Harris "Bud" Evans went to be with the Lord on Sunday, February 24, 2013. Surrounded by family and friends, he passed in an atmosphere of prayer and praise. The beloved husband and father is survived by his wife of 62 years, Carolyn, three daughters and their husbands, Lynn and Marty Hokanson, Karen and Jim McCord, and Cheryl and Michael Lehane. "Grandbud" has seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren and many other family and friends.
Born in Okmulgee, Oklahoma, Bud grew up in Phillips, Texas, where he met the love of his life, Carolyn, at age 12. After graduating from the University of Oklahoma, Bud served in the U.S. Air Force before attending the University of Texas
Law School. He practiced law at Vinson & Elkins for nearly 40 years.
Bud's passions were his faith and family. He led the charge and cheered on his family at all recreational and academic events. His voice will be missed at fields and courts throughout Texas.
Services to celebrate Bud's life and legacy will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, March 1, 2013 at Houston's First Baptist Church. Any contributions may be given to Cal Farley's Boy's Ranch.
