EVANS, Clarence David
1915 ~ 2009
Clarence was born in Duncan, B.C. on May 4, 1915. His grandfather David Evans, together with two brothers, Henry and John were early pioneers in the Cowichan Valley, arriving from Wales in the 1860’s.
After a long struggle with congestive heart failure, Clarence passed away peacefully on July 27, 2009 at Stanford Place in Parksville with family at his side.
He was predeceased by his brother Harold (September 6, 1989), son Lance (July 1, 2004) and sister-in-law Doreen (August 4, 2007).
He is survived by his wife Velma, Qualicum Beach (5 days short of 29th anniversary); brother Bert (Jean) of Maple Bay; brother-in-law John (Dot) Coupland of Duncan; daughter-in-law Elaine Evans of Langley, daughter Moira (Ernie) Beauchesne of Duncan; step-daughter Linda (Ted) Whitfield of Langley; step-son Brett (Tracey) Ticehurst of Coquitlam. His grandchildren: Ken (Diane) Evans of Princeton; Don (Beth) Evans of Thorhild, Alberta; Sheri (Jim) Nowick of Coquitlam; Rob (Lori) Beauchesne of L’Original, Ontario; Denis (Veronica) Beauchesne of Winnipeg, Manitoba; Suzanne Beauchesne (John Cooper) of Errington. His step-grandchildren: Courtney and Alex Whitfield of Langley and Ethan and Shelby Ticehurst of Coquitlam, plus eleven great grandchildren and three great great grandchildren, as well as 4 nephews, 3 nieces, many cousins and a host of friends.
The Evans family would like to thank Dr. T. Gornall (the young fellow) and his staff in Courtenay, and more recently Dr. H. Fletcher in Qualicum, and the guys and gals at Stanford Place for their care of Clarence whose kindness and support will certainly be long remembered.
Clarence will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
A Celebration in His Memory will be held in Duncan
