Obituary

Charles James Evans Sr. of Kingslake, DeBary, Florida,  passed away at the Orange City Fish Memorial Advent Hospital on September 26, 2021.  Charles was born on August 20, 1945, in Scranton, Pennsylvania. He left there in 1979 and arrived in Florida by way of Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. He was preceded in death by his parents Pearl Davis Evans and William J. Evans, and his brother William B. Evans of Scranton, PA.
He enlisted in the United States Navy in 1965 and then continued in the Navy Reserves until he was discharged in August of 1971. He remained in veteran status as a member of the American Legion in Pennsylvania and Florida.  He was a charter member of the AMVETS Post 911 in Port Orange, FL, where he had served as Commander for many years. He was a true patriot. He spent a lifetime career in the food industry. He started as a vendor of Archway Cookies, Entenmanns Bakery, General Foods, and then joined the Food Lion Grocery Chain in 1988, where he was store manager and then advanced to Regional Supervisor for the Deli Bakeries until his retirement in 2010.
He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Judith DePew Evans.  He is also survived by his three sons,  Charles J. Evans, Jr and wife Mandy, of Deltona, Randall Evans and wife Jenn of Port Orange, and Michael Evans and wife Erika also of Port Orange.  He was blessed to be Grandpa or PaPa  to 6 grandchildren,  C.J. Meinke, Ashley Evans, Sebastian Evans, and McKayla Evans of Port Orange and Malek Evans and Adam Evans of Deltona.  He is also survived by many nieces and nephews in Florida and Pennsylvania.
There will be a graveside service at Cape Canaveral National Cemetery on Monday, October 18, 2021 at 2:30 pm and a Celebration of Life at the Barnett Memorial United Methodist Church in Enterprise, FL at a time yet to be announced.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Barnett Memorial United Methodist Church. Charles lived by the philosophy and motto…….”Let us outdo each other in being Helpful and Kind to one another while doing good in this world.”   He fulfilled this philosophy throughout his life.

    Charlie was one of the kindest people I've ever known. He and I shared many discussions about my St. Louis Cardinals ( esp when they won the World Series in 2006 and 2011)...I recall how we drove me to an eye surgeon appointment at moment's notice when I suffered a detached retina. He went out of his way to help me and I will never forget that. I consider him and Judy and Jay as family and cherish the time at The Best Center. Love and prayers❤⚾️

    Charlie was one of the kindest people I've ever known. He and I often discussed Major League Bsseball ( esp my favorite team St. Louis Cardinals). He drove me to a medical appointment once on moment's notice and waited for me so that he could drive me home, since I couldn't see( detached retina)...I will always remember his thoughtfulness. I consider him and Judy and Jay as family...God Bless you all.❤⚾️

    In 52 years, we shared so many wonderful things ......from our children, grandchildren, friends, relocations, etc. From the independent young adults , through experiences that were good and bad, we leaned on each other and tackled the problems that had been presented to us and shared the joy of the great adventures. Our spirits joined forces and managed to provide personal growth for each of us . I think we complimented each other that led to a successful marriage. At the beginning of our marriage.....odds were that we would not survive......but we did.......through the faith in God, dedication to each other, and love . We supported each other's careers and community involvements. We made a great team.........always in love.....forever!
