On Wednesday, September 12, 2018, Gordon Ward Evans, loving husband, and father of two children, passed away at age 89.
Gordon was born on November 23, 1928 in Boneta, Utah, to Ward and Elzada Evans. On December 17, 1947, he married his sweetheart Beth Mitchel Evans. They raised two children, Kent and Connie. After Beth's passing in 2002, Gordon married Barbara Brassaw Evans on November 7, 2003.

He also served a full-time mission in Johannesburg, South Africa, with his wife Beth.
Gordon was passionate about his garden and being involved in the community. He worked at Winder Dairy for 39 years, after which he worked with the Granite School District Board of Education, Salt Lake County Recreation Board, West Valley City Council, and the Granger-Hunter Improvement District.
Gordon was preceded in death by his wife Beth, his wife Barbara, and his brothers Gale, Kent, and Wendell. He is survived by his children Kent (Nancy) and Connie (Cal); his siblings Chad, Forest, Conrad, Val, Burke, Eloise, and Kathy; and many grandchildren and great- grandchildren.
