Robert Evans Obituary

Robert A. “Bob” Evans, 80, of South Williamsport, passed away on Wednesday, February 28, 2024, at the Williamsport Home. He was the devoted husband of Deanna E. (Andy) Evans, loving father, and “Big Bob” to his grandchildren and friends.

Born on October 18, 1943, in Shamokin, he was a son of the late Robert Elwood and Anna Mae (O’Krentovich) Evans. Bob graduated from Coal Township High School in 1961 and entered the U.S. Army in 1962 through 1964. He remained in the Army Reserves until 1970, while being stationed in Fort Hood Texas with the First Armored Division.

After serving in the US. Army, Bob worked for various radio stations in Lewistown, York, and Williamsport. He was the organizer of the Penny-a-Vote High School All-Star teams, and the Ugly Bartender Contest that raised thousands of dollars for the MS society. On July 17, 1976, he married the love of his life, Deanna E. Andy of South Williamsport, and together, began raising their family. In 2011, Bob retired from the United States Postal Service as a mail carrier of over 30 years. He was a big fan of Notre Dame and Steelers football, the New York Yankees, and visiting his two favorite beaches, Ocean City, MD and Myrtle Beach, SC. Bob also enjoyed having a few cold Budweisers with his friends at the Mountaineer Lounge. He was an avid listener of the Beatles and Bruce Springsteen. And even though his favorite Springsteen songs were “Jersey Girl” and “Hungry Heart”, like “The Boss” sang- “Down the shore everything’s alright.”

Robert is also survived by two daughters, Tami Feese (Kenneth) of Williamsport, and Staci Saunders (AJ) of South Williamsport; three sons, Derek Evans of South Williamsport, Kyle Evans (Carinne) of Highland Lakes, NJ, and Kirk Evans of Mechanicsburg; two sisters, Doris Ginck and Maryann Miller; and eight grandchildren, Cyra, Nadia, Dayne, Kenedy, Quinn, Eila, Madison, and Henry.
