Beverly "Bev" "Gramps" Evans
Beverly "Bev" "Gramps" Evans, 75, of Colpitts Settlement, born in Sussex on December 8, 1944 to Otto James and Essie Marie Evans passed away Friday, September 25, 2020 at the Moncton Hospital, surrounded by his family.
Bev worked as a supervisor at Fawcett’s Mill before his retirement. He rarely missed Wednesday night poker at Bobby’s. He enjoyed the outdoors, and often helped his friends to call in moose. He was a great singer, always making his own little ditties, and was proficient in reciting the alphabet backwards when necessary. Most especially he loved his family. His nickname "Gramps" was well earned and extended far beyond his grandchildren.
He will be forever missed by his wife, Theresa Evans; children, Kelly Bruens (Paul), Randy Perry (Tracey), Bonnie Perry (Ivan), Darren Perry (Brenda), Keri (Jason) and Stacy; grandchildren, Bradley, Erika, Brooke, Olyvia, Beckett, Hillary, Catlin, Railey, Callie, Kayla and Mandy; many great-grandchildren; sisters, Norma, Pat (Raymond), Marjorie (Jesse), Charlene (Roy), and Gloria (Cecil); brother, Fraser (Irene); brother-in-law, Delbert; sister-in-law, Linda; many nieces and nephews.
Predeceased by his parents; his first wife, Mable; grandson, Lucas; sisters Joyce, and Bonnie Christine; brother, Fletcher, and brothers-in-law, Clair and Ernest.
Family and friends are invited to a gathering at Bev and Theresa’s home, 662 Salisbury Back Road, Colpitts Settlement, on Friday, October 2, 2020 at 1 pm. It is requested that guests follow covid-19 protocols. Arrangements in care of The Salisbury Funeral Home (372-4800). If desired, memorials to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.
