William Gerald (Jerry) Evans, age 62, died quietly July 29, 2013 in his beloved state of Tennessee with his brother Steve and niece Michelle by his side. He was preceded in death by his parents, Eugene & Doris Evans. He is survived by his two brothers, Steven Evans (wife, Debbie Sue) of PA, and Eugene (Butch) Evans (wife, Regina) of Arizona. Nieces, Julie Evans Tarr (husband, Paul) of PA, Michelle Evans Predajna, of PA; nephew, Roy Evans (wife, Cindy) of PA; and great-nephew, Michael Morrison of PA. Jerry was a 1970 graduate of Hempfield High School in Greensburg, PA and a life member of the North American Hunting Club. His last weeks were spent living and enjoying his dream log cabin home in Sevierville, Tennessee. His family spent many enjoyable hours listening to his life stories of travel and adventure with his musician friends. His charismatic personality and southern charm made him friends wherever he lived. He will be missed by the family and friends he has left behind. The family would like to thank the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville, Tennessee for the kind and gentle care given to Jerry. Services will be private and in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Jerry's name. Also, many thanks to Berry Funeral Home in Knoxville, TN for their help and guidance in Jerry's gently departure.
