  1. My best memories of Evan are when he, Josh and Jessica spent several months living with Heather ( my daughter) And Victor in McAllen, Texas. I had the pleasure of baby sitting several times throughout the time they were there. Later in life when Evan was working for a tree service in Sallisaw, working at our property, I got to talk with him. He professed his faith and told me about his beautiful wife Candance.

  2. Thinking of you all during this difficult time. Losing a loved one is never easy, especially one as young as Evan. I’m holding you all close in my heart and wrapping my arms around you virtually.

  3. My memories of Evan is when his mother, Joyce and grandmother, Margaret brought him along with his siblings, Joshua and Jessica to mount Zion church in teresita when they were young. We spent several thanksgivings together at his uncle Steve and aunt Cindy’s home over the years. I was always glad to stay in touch on Facebook with all of Wayne and Joyce’s children. Our love and deepest sympathy go out to all the family. 🙏♥️

  4. I remember Josh and even coming over for mom famous banana pudding. She always had to make and extra pan just for them. I remember we would all sit down and tell embarrassing stories and the stupid things they were they were young. While sitting there all I could think was , wow I can’t wait to make fun memories and do crazy things with my family and friends just like they did. I love you even rip

  5. Sending condolences and prayers. Evan graduated with my son Brandon. My heart hurts for all of you. I know Evan and Brandon are together celebrating.

  6. Evan it was truly an honor to know you. You are forever missed and truly loved. I enjoyed our long conversations whenever I would bring Shelby for the weekend, or her school breaks. Thank you for being the best uncle to not only her but her siblings. You’re one of a kind! We will all cherish the memories you have us.
