Obituary for Robert "Bob" Evans

March 5, 1953 - January 6, 2018
West Olive, Michigan | Age 64


Robert Evans, age 64, passed away on January 6, 2018.

Robert "Bob" was born in Chicago, IL on March 5, 1953 to his parents Rene and Zenora (Prowell) Evans.
"Bob" as everyone called him, was the fifth of sixteen children. Raised and educated in Chicago, he attended John M. Smith Elementary School and graduated from Westinghouse High School. After high school, he began his career working for Coupling Company, Zenith, and then McDade while residing in Chicago.

In 1990, Bob settled in Holland, MI. He was employed for 25 years at Perrigo as the second shift group lead for coating. This is where he met his best friend Israel "Izzy" Garcia.

In 2005, after 20 years together, he and Nadine married in a ceremony at Centennial Park. No stranger to work, it was normal to hear that he was at work. However, when Bob wasn't working you could find him fishing, cooking, listening to old school music, and loving life with his family. Bob was also into cars. He loved his Corvette and made sure it was always clean and shining.

Bob is preceded in death by his parents and his sisters Paula Evans, Darlene (Evans) Walker and Almarie Evans.

Left to cherish his memory and carry his legacy are his wife, Nadine; children, C.J., Dontrell, Kesha (Alex), Shavonica, and Larry (Michelle); siblings, Shirley (Robert), Rene (Joanne), Samuel, Regina (Harold), Maurice (Sarah), Scott (Jacqueline), Ronald (Lizz), Venita (Cornelius), Kenneth, Francine, James, and Lenore; 17 grandchildren; goddaughters Mercedes and Jovita Ramirez, godson Keith Haywood; and a host of nieces, nephews, friends, and co-workers.

Funeral services are at noon on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at Shekinah Revival Ministries, 1941 Washington Ave., Holland, MI 49423.

Visitation with the family will start at 10:00 am the same day and will take place at the church.
