Laurence Charles (Larry) Evans

Died August 28, 2016 at his home in Castro Valley, CA. Born in Minneapolis in 1932, he moved, with his parents Ralph (Chic) and Virginia Evans, to San Pedro in 1937 where, with the exception of his Army service in Panama, he resided for 56 years.

Larry attended Leland Street and Mary Star Elementary Schools, a Los Angeles seminary, graduated from St. Anthony High School in 1950, and attended El Camino College. He was a partner in Chic Evans Modern Brake until 1980 and continued in the automotive field as a Sales Rep. He also spent a few years writing an auto-history column for an online magazine.

In 2007, at the age of 75, he opened a new Batteries Plus store in Dublin, CA and volunteered with the California Highway Patrol for the past several years.

He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Elizabeth; sons, Larry and Greg; daughter, Lauren (Steve) Dixon; grandchildren, Jakob Evans, Elyse and Jennifer Dixon; sister, Daryl Schwarz and many nieces and nephews.

Donations to any children's charity would honor his memory. A private family memorial gathering has been planned. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits
