Christian Evans Obituary
July 24, 1971 - February 11, 2017 Christopher David Evans, known as Christian, died after a long battle with bipolar disease on February 11, 2017. He was 45. Christian was born and raised in Farmington, New Mexico. As a boy, he was an athlete, excelling at basketball and baseball; an artist, whose white truck was splattered with a rainbow of paint; and an explorer, who enjoyed weekend adventures on the nearby Navajo reservation. Christian always felt a close connection to the Navajo culture, which informed many facets of his life, from his jewelry design to his deep sense of spirituality. From California to Ibiza, New Mexico to London, Christian gathered people from all walks of life to form a global family. Back when he was 19, he told his mother his dream was to marry a woman who already had two children, so there would be more people to love. He got his wish when he met Ricki Lake and her boys Milo and Owen, who, along with Christian's son Taylor, combined to form the little family he had always wanted. Christian is survived by his eternal soulmate, Ricki Lake, his son, Taylor Alexander, Ricki's sons, Milo and Owen Sussman, his mother, Pam Evans, father, Byron Evans, sister, Colette Simonetta, brother-in-law, Leo Simonetta, niece, Reese Simonetta, nephew, Riley Simonetta, and bulldog, Pacha. Donations in Christian's honor may be made to a memorial fund benefiting his son, Taylor: https://www.gofundme.com/christian-evans.
