  1. George attended a men’s Bible study at Hometown Barbeque and all of us who met George thought he was very friendly and fun. We will miss him.

  2. I will never forget George Evans. He could take a joke and he could dish it out. I always had fun picking on George in Sunday School and he never let me get away with anything. George was more than “a nice guy” he asked deep questions about the Bible and when you gave him an answer he had already pondered the answer and you had better be ready when the original question led to the second deeper question. George went through some problems in his life and when I was having similar problems he helped guide me through many dark weeks. He always said that there were no easy solutions and tough times require tough action.
    George loved Martha as much as I have seen anybody love their wife. Everything revolved around her (and the dog). Babe always was his number one priority. Martha had health problems and George laid everything aside until she was better.
    To say I will miss George Evans is an understatement. Anybody who knew him will miss him. Right now he stands in the Glory of Almighty God and someday we will stand by his side.

  3. I love you Daddy. I’m glad you found your path to the “peace, happiness, harmony and love” you so desired. God Bless You!

  4. We will miss the big smile that was always present and the story telling. Martha, our prayers are with you. Thankfully, we all know we will see George again in heaven. We send our love.

  5. I will miss George coming by the office to visit. He loved to pick on me and get me into one of our many debates. He always knew what buttons to push to get me going and we would banter back and forth, and then just sit and laugh with me. He always had a smile on his face. He loved talking about the love of his life Martha “Babe”. George was a dear friend, I love him and I will miss him so much, he was always there to listen when I had a problem and offer a kind word of wisdom or a suggestion. George was a wonderful man with a big personality and a heart to match. I have tremendous respect for him. I have peace in knowing he is with our Heavenly Father and I am sure he is looking down and watching over all of us. Martha, you are in my prayers, I love you.

  6. I love you Papa. I know you are happy where you are now. I also know you will help Jesus watch over us and prepare the way for Little George. I will never forget you standing in the middle of the parking lot at the nursing home and holding me and crying with me when my mama died. You dropped everything and came back to Texas when I told you Little George was sick and never even let on that you had a heart attack while you were here. You only said you were going to bed. I still can’t believe you drove all the way back to Georgia after having a heart attack. I am so glad we all had time together these past years. I will miss the phone calls we had.

  7. Reading the comments above are not the man I grew up knowing as my Daddy. We never went to church. He never worshiped God. I don’t know the man you describe because I look at that man as a hipocrit. Married Martha his high school sweet heart after having an affair with her while still married to my mom for 46 years. Obviously Martha wasn’t a saint. Guess that’s why he beat us because he wanted to be with Martha all those years. It was a blessing when he abandoned his children and grandchildren with no goodbyes. Didn’t get drunk and ruin anymore family get togethers or best his children. We Never knew what we did to deserve being abandoned. When he took his last breath I was happy because you had him no longer.
