Warren L. Evans, 88, passed on May 11, 2023 at Oregon Veterans’ Home, Lebanon, Oregon.
He was born October 10, 1934 in Exeter, California, the son of Leo and Helen (Redman) Evans (deceased) and brother to Donna Evans (Adair) (deceased).
Warren married Willa Mae (Brand) Evans in Oroville, California, on December 3, 1956. Shortly after, he received his draft notice and served in the U.S. Army from January 1957 to December 1958, 14 months in Korea.
Surviving in addition to his wife are three sons, Michael Evans and wife Kyra of California; Andrew Evans and wife Saff of Oregon; and Timothy Evans; three grandchildren, Olivia Evans, Amelia Evans, Tyler Evans and one great grandchild.
Warren has worn many hats over the years including schoolteacher, surveyor and police officer. He was an amazing woodworker, craftsman and outdoorsman. Warren also worked for the Western Ecology Division of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for 20 years where he developed many friendships and thoroughly enjoyed his duties and workmates.
Warren volunteered many hours cleaning the grounds, restoring monuments and helped create sitting areas at Mt. Union Cemetery. I hope that he inspires others to volunteer in maintaining the cemetery.
A time of remembrance will be held from 9-11 a.m. Saturday, July 1, at Historic Mt. Union Cemetery, 2987 Mount Union Avenue.
