Michael Kenneth Evans
OROVILLE, Calif. - Michael Kenneth Evans, age 68, of Oroville, Calif., and Mesa, Ariz., passed away Sunday, July 27, 2014, from cancer at his home in Arizona with Bonnie, his wife of 38 years, with him. Per his request, there will be no services.
Mike was born July 4, 1946, in Fairmont, Minn., to Kenneth and Joyce Evans. His spirit and love of life touched many lives from coast to coast and beyond and he will be greatly missed.
Survivors include: his wife, Bonnie; father, Kenneth of Fairmont; children, Lisa (Mark), Jodi (Craig), and Kenny, all of Calif.; six grandchildren who have that special memory of bass fishing with Grandpa Mike on Lake Oroville; niece, Laura (Dan); step-brother, Doug (Sharon); sister-in-law, Linda (Paul); cousin, Phyllis (Doug); many great friends whom he considered part of his family; and his dog, Brandy.
Mike was my step-mom's brother in law, the husband of her sister.  I only met the gentleman a couple times at family gatherings and was struck by how young at heart he was.  Much like his wife.  He will be missed.
