Gerry Lee Evens, 74

Gerry Lee Evens, the legend - known for shenanigans, such as jumping off the bridge on SR 42 for a case of Strohs and trying to outrun the police down a Greencastle railroad track in his younger years. And be known in his more mature years for spoiling his grandchildren, and flirting shamelessly with his bride of 53 years until the end, has passed at the age of 74 years old.

Gerry has passed down a legacy of unconditional love for family and the ability to find humor in any situation. He is survived by his beautiful wife, Ruby. His sister Patricia Evens; His children Kathy (Warren) Evans, Betty (Tony) Tungett, & Amy (Bob) Goodpaster. His grandchildren, PJ (Beth) Evens, Alesha( Daniel) Parker, Wes (Shelby) Evans, Kelsey & Nathan Tungett, Kaysea (Juan) & Sylvia Lewis, & Maddox & Xarra (Nancy) Goodpaster. His great grandchildren, Karma & Annabeth Evens. His dog (aka best friend), Sally.

He is preceded in death by his parents, and sister, Barbara Jean Arnold. He will be missed terribly by many, until we meet again. His mantra in his twenties was to look in the mirror and say, “You good looking SOB, don’t you ever die”, and he gave it one hell of a good run. The memorial service was held Monday, November 7, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. @ Whitaker Funeral Home in Cloverdale.
