Willard Evans, Sr., age 72, of Throop, died Friday evening at Celtic Hospice Community Care in Dunmore. Born on January 7, 1942, son of the late Theodore and Marion Hill Evans, Willard previously worked in demolition and his longtime hobby was woodworking. Whether it be going for ice cream or taking rides nowhere in particular, as long as it involved spending time with his family, it made him happy.
He is survived by his four children, Willard Evans, Jr., Sheila Macedonia, Helen Evans, all of Throop, and Roseann Miller of Scranton; his former wife of over 30 years, Jean Balendy Evans of Throop; seven grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
Sisters, Betty Fenton and Marion Beavers, also preceded him in death.
In gratitude for their excellent care, memorial contributions may be made in Willard’s name to Celtic Home Health & Hospice Community Care, 100 Williams Street at Clay Ave., Dunmore, 18510.
Private arrangements are under the care of the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue in Scranton.
