Steven Patrick Evans
Steve Evans was born on December 10, 1963. He passed away Monday, January 5, 2015 at the age of 51. He is preceded in death by parents, Vernon and Mary Ann Evans and sister, Anita.
Steve is survived by wife, Nancy Evans; daughter, Stephanie Evans of Omega Bay and brother, John Evans and wife, Deborah of Marble Falls, Texas. He also has two nephews, Patrick and Matthew.
Steve was a longtime resident of Omega Bay in La Marque, Texas. His hometown was Beeville, Texas where he graduated from A.C. Jones High School in 1982. Steve graduated from Texas A&M University in 1987 with a Bachelor of Science.
Steve was a dedicated husband and father who loved his family more than anything. This past summer Steve and Nancy celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary. He touched the lives of so many. Steve always had a larger than life smile. He taught his beloved daughter how to hunt, fish, drive a boat and his truck. Stephanie would tell you the boat brought them closer than anything. Also, anyone will tell you that she is the apple of her daddy’s eye. Steve left a legacy of coaching and teaching across the state of Texas beginning in North Garland, Beeville, Port Arthur, La Marque, Aldine, Texas City and ending in what he lovingly referred to as the “land of milk and honey” at Clear Falls High School. He taught unconditional love and friendship, he taught teams how to win through teamwork and skill. His boys and students loved him.
With Steve, a simple handshake was not acceptable, only a hug would do. Steve left us too soon and many tears will be shed because of his absence. Steve touched the lives of so many, in so many ways. He will be missed.
