Thomas Alfred EVANS Obituary
EVANS, Thomas Alfred Age 89 November 7, 2012. It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved father. Our loss is immense, but we are comforted to know Dad is now reunited with our Mom. He will be forever in our hearts. He is survived by his seven children, thirteen grandchildren, three great- grandchildren; a brother and a sister. Tom was one of eight children, born in Wilkes-Barre, PA, July, 1923 to Stanley and Sophia Evans. Introduced by a mutual friend to our mother, they married in October 1944. Tom served in the Army Air Force as a celestial navigation training instructor. Tom was a proud graduate of Bucknell University and enjoyed a long career with the General Electric Co. as a Financial Analyst in Schenectady, NY. In 1976, his career with G.E. brought the family to Hendersonville, TN. After retirement, Tom was active in real estate and served as a Board Member and Vice-Chairman of The American Cancer Society, Community Child Care Services, Senior Citizens Center and Friends of Rock Castle. He was also a Facilitator at Careers Network, and a Rotary Member. As a parishioner at Our Lady of the Lake, he was active with Room at the Inn, Adoration and Emmaus. Tom was a natural entertainer and gifted story teller. His love of song and dance gave him great joy and he shared these passions with his family. He had a phenomenal catalog of music and lyrics committed to memory, and frequently applied music to any given situation. Without a doubt, he always had a song in his heart. In lieu of flowers, the family requests you honor Tom through a donation to the Arthritis National Research Foundation or your local Animal Rescue League. A Memorial Mass will be held 2 p.m. Monday, at Our Lady of the Lake Church. Visitation 3-6 p.m. Sunday, at HENDERSONVILLE FUNERAL HOME, 353 Johnny Cash Pkwy., Hendersonville TN 37075; (615) 824-3855. hendersonvillefh.com
