June 26, 1938February 6, 2021

William Edward Evans, Jr., 82, of Stanley passed away at home on Saturday February 6, 2021. William was born in Belcross, NC, but he considered Stanley and Gaston County home. He is the son of the late Alice (Davis) and William Edward Evans, Sr. His family says that William was one of the best men you will ever come across. He was an avid deer hunter and when he wasn’t working he was outside. He could often be spotted working in his yard on his John Deere tractor. He also enjoyed woodworking. Professionally, William was in the transportation industry working as a terminal dispatcher and truck driver. He retired from Reliable Tank Line. William will be dearly missed by all that knew and loved him.

In addition to his parents William is preceded in death by his sister, Alice Ennis and brother Wilson Evans.

Left to cherish their memories of William and to carry on his legacy are his wife of 61 years Mary (Barr) Evans and daughters, Barbara Bloyer and her husband Tim, Billie Jo Evans and Lora Evans. William leaves behind eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

The family will hold a memorial service at a later date.
