Evan Emrys JENKINS

June 25, 1914 – May 21, 2014

Evan passed away peacefully at Millsite Lodge, 100 Mile House, B.C.

Evan was born in Atwater, Saskatchewan and grew up in Bangor, Saskatchewan, working very hard on many farms. Later he moved to Burnaby, B.C. and worked for CN for many years. Evan was very independent and was never afraid of hard work. In 1975 he retired and moved to Deka Lake, B.C. His biggest passion was ice fishing and his love of animals.

Evan never had any children of his own but was very fond of all of his nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews. Evan is survived by his nephews Larry, Lew, Robert and Jack; nieces Patricia, Debbie and Marlene.

Evan is predeceased by his father Richard Jenkins, mother Elizabeth (Jones) Jenkins, brothers: Lewis Richard, Robert Idris (Mary Snell); sisters: Gwendolyne Margaret (Ralph Nilson) and Blodwen Catherine (Pete Marowski).

For those of us that knew him well in the community friends, neighbours and family, we will always remember his great sense of humour and he will always be remembered as “Uncle Evan”

We will miss you, ‘Rest in Peace Uncle Evan.’

Interment at Forest Lawn Cemetery, 3789 Royal Oak Cemetery, Burnaby, B.C. at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Evan’s memory to the SPCA would be greatly appreciated.
