Roger Lee Evans
2/24/42-4/25/18

Roger Lee Evans suddenly passed away on April 25, 2018 at the age of 76 at Plateau Medical Center in Oak, Hill WV. Roger was born on February 24, 1942 to his late parents Troy and Edith Evans.

Roger was a coal miner at West Moreland Coal Company. He was also a truck driver for several years and later accomplished his dream of owning his own garage, Evans Garage in Shady Spring, WV. Roger enjoyed carpentry, fishing at the beach, going to flea markets, and piddling on his antique cars. After retirement he spent his time on their small farm gardening, working with the animals, and making memories with his grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife of 31 years, Betty Evans of Shady Spring WV; his sister, Brenda Bailey of Morgan Town, WV; his five biological children, Michael, Mark, Troy, Patricia, Steven and their families whom he loved; he was a wonderful step-father to Ann Adkins, Denise Windsor, Jennifer Aurednik (Husband James) and Dennis Adkins (Wife Brianne).

Together he and his wife had 14 grandchildren, Debbie, Beth, Kenny, Jenny and Kyle of Ann Adkins; Tristan and Aaron of Denise Windsor; Samantha, Brandon and Carley of Jennifer and James Aurednik; Caleb, Connie and Cami of Dennis and Brianne Adkins.

They also shared 11 precious great-grandchildren, Nathen, Hunter, Raelynn, Tyler, Trevor, Emma, Alaina, Jax, Bentley, Ayden and Anthony.

We will forever cherish his memories and know that Roger is at his final resting place with the Lord.

There will be a memorial service on Saturday, May 5th at 2:00 pm in the Melton Mortuary Chapel. The family will be receiving friends at 12 noon.
