Robert Kenneth Evans

Robert Kenneth Evans of Ivyland and formerly a long time and proud resident of the Crispin Gardens Section of Northeast Philadelphia, died peacefully on Thursday, May 21, 2020 at St. Mary Medical Center.  He was 86.

Bob was the loving and devoted husband of Mildred “Millie” Trunk Evans with whom he shared 67 years of love, family, and life’s adventures.

Born in Philadelphia, Bob was the youngest of six children to the late Edward and Alice Davies Evans and was also preceded in death by his granddaughter, Kimberley Schafer.

Bob led a long career as a carpenter with Carpenter’s Union #1856 until his retirement.  He was a talented woodworker who also worked along with his son-in-law on various projects and he took great pride in making sure his Northeast Philly row home always looked its best.  Along with his wife Millie, they enjoyed many years of fun with family and close friends, especially Friday night bowling.

Most of all, Bob will be remembered simply as an all-around good guy who treasured time spent with family and friends, most especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

In addition to his wife, Bob leaves behind his children, Kathy Schafer (Ken) of Ivyland and Bob Evans (Peg) of Bristol; his grandchildren, Kenny (Gisela), Peggy (Ryan), Megan (James), Bobby (Melissa), Michael (Melissa), Joann (Anthony), and 13 great-grandchildren.

Services and interment for Bob will be held privately.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Bob’s memory to the Stephen Siller Tunnels to Tower Foundation at 2361 Hylan Boulevard, Staten Island, NY 10306.
