On Monday, March 18, 2013, LaMont "Monte" James Evans, 45, passed away at his home in Idaho Falls.
He was born Aug. 25, 1967, to Terry and Charlotte Evans. He was the youngest of three. When he was younger, he enjoyed working on his uncle Dale's farm and continued to do so for a few years after graduating from Highland High School in 1985.
He later moved to Idaho Falls, where he worked for Melaleuca and met his soon-to-be wife, Jennifer Rockwood. They were later married in the Bahamas. They had a son, Tyson, who was the joy of their life. They all enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and staying at the Rockwood family cabin. They later divorced.
He loved spending time with Tyson and watching him play football. They also loved to watch football; their favorite team was the New Orleans Saints.
He was currently working for Northwest Cosmetics Lab in Idaho Falls as a compounder and supervisor; he loved all his co-workers.
He is survived by his son, Tyson; his parents; his sister, Lisa (Randy) Fernandez; and several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his sister, Terri Lyn Evans; and grandparents, Vernon and Mae Harris, and Jim and Dora Evans.
