Fred M. Evans
December 3, 1950 – July 25, 2013
Fred’s voicemail message ended with the words "and have a great day!"
During the "–" above, Fred had many great days, including: finishing University of Texas pharmacy school and returning to the profession, marrying Karla, experiencing the births of Daniel, Martha, Grace, and Katie, finishing a few marathons, buying University of Texas/Oklahoma football tickets on the day of the game, starting his own and successful landscaping/irrigation business, having family and friends out to the lake house, scuba diving, experiencing the joy of grandsons Jayden and Ellis, and probably the best of all days, gathering his family around his bedside last Thursday.
Fred taught us all so much during the last year or two. Thank you Fred, for your lessons of honoring God, walking in Christ’s footsteps, loving friends and family, and living one day at a time in steadfast faith.
To God be the glory!
There will be a service at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church on Friday, August 2, 2013 at 11 AM. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, 2222 Welborn St., Dallas, TX 75219

I saw a video of Mr. Evans walking two of his daughters down the isle and it was so beautiful. What a great way for a father to express his love for his family! I hope his story touches many others. He seemed like a wonderful person.

Mrs. Evans and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. This morning I watched the story of Mr. Evans walking Gracie and Katie down the aisle, and I was so touched by the last gift your daughters received from their father. I loved babysitting your children and remember you all as such a loving and faithful family. I pray that God surrounds your family with His comfort and peace.

Karla and family,
We didn't know about Fred's passing until today, when we saw the heartwarming TV story about his walking Gracie and Katie down the aisle. Fred was a wonderful man and father, and your family is a model for all of us in dealing with the ups and downs of life. I am grateful to have known him and all of you, and I know your memories of those many happy days will sustain you. You are all in my prayers today and hereafter.

Dear Karla and My Cousins,
I am sorry knowing that you all went through this tragic experience. There is never any rhyme or reason why life plays out like this with the most beautiful people in the world. I pray you all become stronger each day and learn to live again....

Karla and family--I cannot begin to understand what you and your family are going through during this time--I do know that the love, memories, and faith in God will substain you all in the coming days. My memories of Freddie start with elementary school and all the way through high school to him being in our wedding in 1972. Freddie and Paul started their friendship in Jr. high and continued on through the years. Freddie was the type of friend that you have for life. You may not have contact for years, but when you do, you pick up like it was yesterday. I am thankful that you and your family had his presence and wonderful love for the time that you did. He most definitly was a special man. With heartfelt prayers,

Karla and family - I cannot express how much Fred meant to me and so it is incomprehensible as to how much his loss was to you. Fred influenced and impressed me each and every time I was in his presence. Fairness, goodness, friendliness and godliness oozed from Fred's being - Earth is a better place for having had him and, if possible, Heaven is a better place for having him.

Karla and family my thoughts and prayers are with you all. I am so sorry for your loss of Fred. But thankful for the wonderful blessings of his love for all of you thru his life. He was an amazing man and I always enjoyed talking with him when I saw you all. I was so touched by his gift of walking your two daughters down the aisle. Love, Kerry

Carolyn and I are sorry for your loss. Fred was a great guy.
Fred, Last Friday at about 3:30 at Zuffy's at Midway and Trinity Mills, there 3 of us guys toasted you. "You made it". That's my thought of a man that meets his maker after all the trails and tribulations of this life. Congrats Fred
