Burial will be in St. Patrick's Church. Mr. Evans was a war veteran and military services will be conducted by members of World War I Veterans, Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion.

Mr. Evans' death occurred at the Veterans Hospital in Des Moines. He had spent a year's military service in France where he was wounded in battle and had been in poor health since that time.

Born April 2, 1894 at Emmetsburg, he was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Archie Evans. He moved with his family to Emmet County when four years of age and received his education in the county schools here. Prior to entering the service he had worked as call boy for the Rock Island and also had been employed as a lather.

He is survived by three brothers, Joseph of Fairmont, William of Estherville, John of Cedar Rapids; and five sisters, Mrs. Wallace (Mary) Lynch and Mrs. Lucille Reinhardt, both of Estherville; Mrs. Roy (Margaret) Bartleman of St. James, Minn.; Mrs. Jonathan (Catherine) Tucker, Salt Lake City, Utah; and Mrs. Joe (Elizabeth) O'Brien, Emmetsburg; and a number of nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two brothers. (Estherville Daily News, Estherville, IA, November 28, 1962)
