It is with great sadness that the family of Robert Eli Evarts announces his passing on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at the age of 74. His father being a prominent Pan-Am pilot, Bob lived and traveled all over the world while growing up. Bob spent the majority of his career in Fort Lauderdale, FL owning his own businesses in marine electronics. He continued working in engineering and technology at Panasonic in Atlanta, Georgia until he retired in 2002. He loved sailing and gardening. His greatest joy was spending time with his family. Bob was also a United States Air Force Veteran. Bob is survived by his loving wife, Elizabeth; children, Scott Evarts and his wife Kim of Charlotte, NC, Merodie Brown and her husband Robert of Winder, GA, and Adyson Evarts of Columbus, OH; sisters Merodie Yuhr of Melbourne Beach, FL and Katie Woody and her husband Charles of Philadelphia, PA; sister-in-law, Patricia Vanacore of Lawrenceville, GA; grandchildren, Kayleigh Brown, Kaitlyn Evarts, Aaliyah, Isaiah, Eli, and Madeline Lunceford.

  1. Elizabeth,
    I just heard of Bob’s passing. I’m so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you and the children. You were always the loving and faithful wife.

  2. So sorry to hear about Bob’s passing. My condolences to his wife, family and friends. I only knew him a few months, but that was enough time to know he was a fine gentleman is the classic sense. We discussed numerous topics, including politics, and he had a pleasing, civil demeanor that made discussions enriching and a joy. He shared some of his extraordinary biography with me, and expressed his deep love of his wife, children and family. I extend my deepest sympathies to his family and friends. God bless you all, and Bob.
