We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Fantin's Funeral Chapel
It is with incredible sadness that we announce the passing of John “Jack” Evans of Bellevue, AB on June 8, 2022. He was 85 years of age.
Jack was born in Calgary, AB on August 29, 1936 to parents, George and Grace Evans. At an early age, the Crowsnest Pass, AB became his home. Here, he developed a great love for the outdoors and he explored and enjoyed it whenever he could while riding horses, hunting, fishing and camping. Jack also loved hockey and was a talented woodworker. Not only was he dedicated to his family, but also to his community as shown through his memberships with the Blairmore Elks and Coleman Legion.
Jack was a kind and forgiving man who loved with his whole heart. He adored his grandchildren and was very proud of each of them. Jack has entered into eternal rest, but he will live on in the hearts of those he leaves behind.
Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life is his son, Robert (Alaina) Evans of Blairmore, AB; his daughter, Connie Elliott of Cochrane, AB; his grandchildren, Tucker Evans, Tavin Evans and Shaw Elliott; his great-grandson, Royce Konynenbelt; his brother, Ron (Ollie) Evans of Cranbrook, BC; as well as his extended family and many friends.
He was predeceased by his mother, Grace Holt; his father, George Evans; his grandson, Ryan Konynenbelt; his brother, David Evans; and his companion, Beatrice Gregor.
A private family service will be held. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the Canadian Cancer Society (www.cancer.ca). Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
