I remember when "Jimmy" was born. His parents lived at 1385 Lakeview on Detroit's east side and he spent the first 6 or 7 yrs there. To me he was this tiny little bald headed bundle that I was only allowed to hold if I was sitting down. I was 81/2 yrs old. By Thanksgiving I had learned how to change his diapers. He was a contented little boy and smart. He loved cars and by 6 could identify a 1950 Ford or a "51 Chevy or a "49 Merc., etc. I could go on and on but I'll save some for next time. You are missed, Jimmy, by so many, and loved. Our love to Judy, the kids and grandkids. Uncle Jerry Lee and Ann

Dear Judy and family,
It was a shock and we were saddened to learn that Jimmy had died. We were unaware of his battle with cancer these last several months until Denise called. Jimmy was a kind man, a hard worker, a man who loved and adored you, his children and grandchildren. Being my first nephew gave him a special place in my heart. I remember babysitting him when I myself was still a child of 10 or 12. I watched him grow from infancy to become the wonderful person he became. We are sorry we couldn't be with you at this time to offer our condolences and support personally. You are in our thoughts and prayers. We also want to extend our sympathies to the entire Evans clan for this sad and significant loss.

Jim Evans was a man of enormous integrity, character, courage, and faith. He loved his wife, children, grandchildren, brothers and sisters very much. He understood the obligation of being the oldest of twelve and protected, guided, and nurtured them with the utmost care and responsibility. As a decorated veteran of the Vietnam war, Jim served with the Special Forces unit and received numerous awards, citations, and commendations for his bravery, courage, and gallantry. He served his country with pride, honor, and distinction. He was a very kind, compassionate, caring, and loving human being whom I admired and respected very much. He was a true friend.

May God continue to watch over, guide, and protect his family at this most difficult time.

"If we live, we live to the Lord: and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord." Romans 14:8

May He Rest In Peace.
