Bill Evans of Torrance passed away on November 13th after a short but courageous battle with cancer. Born in Sioux Falls, SD, Bill moved his family to California in 1949, settling in Redondo Beach. He attended Redondo Union HS and graduated from Mt. Carmel HS in 1952. After a stint at El Camino College, he enlisted in the US Army and served in Germany until 1958. In May 1959, Bill married Darlene McKenna, his wife of more than 51 years. Shortly after earning a degree in business from Cal State LA, Bill began a career with the Internal Revenue Service that spanned more than 30 years, during which time he dedicated countless hours to helping his co-workers by his involvement with the National Treasury Employees Union, including serving as Chapter 15 President. Upon his retirement in 2002, Bill began pursuing his passion for golf. Always one to lend a hand, he was involved in the South Bay Seniors Golf and Victoria Senior Men's Golf Clubs, as well as volunteering at Rolling Hills Country Club. He also enjoyed woodworking, chess, crosswords, a good political debate and watching Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune and his beloved LA Lakers. He is survived by his wife, Darlene; his son, Timothy, daughter-in-law, Trisha, grandson, Nicolas, granddaughters, Antoinette and Colleen of Lakewood, CA; daughter, Kimberly of Torrance; son, Daniel, daughter-in-law, Carol, and granddaughters, Lauren and Danielle of Bend, OR; his brothers, Jack (Margaret) and Dick (Sharon), sisters, Mary Costello (Joseph) and Barbara Sawoya (Sam), as well as numerous loving in-laws, nieces and nephews.
