June 30, 1939 – November 22, 2018
John Evans was born in Wales on June 30, 1939, and passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on November 22, 2018. Predeceased by his 1st wife Hazel, survived by Sheila, his loving wife of 32 years. Also survived by five children, Paula (Peter), Eira (Barry), David (Tammy), Ceri (Graham), Amanda, 13 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. His beautiful life will forever be cherished in the lives of his family.
John immigrated to Canada in 1974 from Wales, with his family following later. John met his wife Sheila in 1987, and they eventually settled in Sidney, B.C. John had many interests, including lawn bowling, darts, rugby, gardening and cycling, which included round trips to Sooke in his later years. John’s sense of humour and zest for life will be missed by his friends, family and all who knew him.
A special thanks to those caregivers who helped with caring for John, to Erica at the Peninsula Care Unit, and his grandaughter Sara who cared for him during his final days.
A private celebration of life will be held for immediate family and invited friends. In lieu of flowers,
