Obituary of John Evans Jr.

John Evans, Jr. passed peacefully on February 7, 2022, at the VA Hospital, East Orange.  He shared 77 years of love and dedication with his family.  Private arrangements were held under the direction of the Norman Dean Home For Services, 16 Righter Ave. Denville.  Donations in his name may be made to the good work of the US Department of Veterans Affairs.

 

John was born in Kingston PA on Christmas Eve of 1944 to the late John and Mary (nee Fedora) Evans.  He was one of six children to bless the family.  After his schooling he enlisted with the US Army proudly serving our country.  Upon his honorable discharge he met Linda Nagel and the rest was history.  John and Linda fell in love on the dance floor.  They married on November 18, 1967 and settled in Boonton Twp to start a family of their own.  John worked hard to provide a good life.  He retired from Avdel Corporation after many years of dedicated service.   

 

In his younger years, John enjoyed bowling alongside his son and wife in various leagues at Boonton Lanes, teaching his daughter to play pool, playing horseshoes, and participating in the Rock Ridge’s softball league.  John was an avid sport fan cheering on the NY Yankees and the Philadelphia Eagles, 76ers, and Flyers.

 

Colleagues, friends, and family will always remember him for his sense of humor and his kind heart.  He will greatly be missed.  

John loved his family and grandchildren. He leaves his wife Linda of 54 years; his children John M. Evans (Melissa) and Sue Feliciano; his grandchildren Garrison and Dillon Evans and Bryan and Mikayla Feliciano; his siblings Olga Kachmarsky, Mildred Siles, Michael Evans, Nancy Navin and many more dear relatives.  His sister Delores Drago passed previously.
