Henry George Evans, 73, passed quietly from this life to his heavenly reward on March 17, 2013, in his home at Center Ridge, Ark. His companion and caregiver of 32 years, Bob Salas, was at his side when he took his last breath.

He was superseded in death by his parents, Everett Vernon Evans and Dorothy Eleanor Zerbel. Surviving brothers and sister include Roy Allen Evans (Lora Lee), Michael Dan Evans (Debbie), Everett Vernon Evans Jr., Barbara Milner and numerous nieces and nephews.

A memorial Mass was held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Morrilton.

Henry had a tremendous love and respect for all animals. Prior to his illness, he was an avid hunter, photographer, livestock buyer, a member of the American Quarter Horse Association, a member of the Appaloosa Horse Club, and a member of the American Kennel Club.

He was a devout Catholic and had a special devotion to the Blessed Mother.

His ashes were spread on his farm, the land that he loved.
