Obituary of Gary J. Evans

Please share a memory of Gary to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Gary James Evans, 79, passed away quietly at home on Saturday, July 16, 2022. Born in Hazleton, PA, Gary grew up in the ‘Coal Regions’ and graduated from Hazleton High School, then joined the US Army. He and his wife, Joyce were married and resided in various regions of the Lehigh Valley area, where he was employed by PP&L as a Lineman and was a member of IBEW and the Masons. Gary was a Volunteer Firefighter for many years at the Woodlawn Fire Company. Upon retirement Gary and his wife Joyce moved to Egg Harbor Twp., NJ where they enjoyed attending Fresh Start Church.  Gary loved cars and if you ask his beloved wife, Joyce, he had way too many! He will be dearly missed by his wife, Joyce (Eckrote) Evans, daughters; Jill (and Robert) Zauck, Juli (and Terry) O’Neill, and son James Evans, along with 6 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, and his sisters Jeanne and Sally. The family would like to thank the University of Pennsylvania Heart Transplant Team and Holy Redeemer Hospice for their compassionate care. A Time for Remembrance will be planned in the future.
