October 12, 2021

It is with heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Philip Craig Evans. Phil was born March 30, 1943 in Pittsburgh, PA. He is preceded in death by his parents Ralph and Virginia Evans, and his brother Ralph Evans. He is survived by his beloved wife of 58 years, Jane Evans (Stickley), children, Kimberly Wherry (Jim), Philip Jr. (Jenn), grandchildren, Stephanie Harris (Jason), Matthew Wherry (fiance, Lindsey Wingold), Ashley Evans, and Zachary Evans. Phil attended Langley High School and graduated in 1962. Upon graduating, he joined the U.S. Army and was stationed at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Shortly thereafter, he married the love of his life when Jane joined him. In 1965, they moved back to Pittsburgh to raise their family. Phil loved his family and enjoyed every moment he spent with them. Phil and Jane traveled to many places in the United States, the Caribbean Islands and the South Pacific. They often traveled by train, as trains were another one of Phil's great loves. Phil's most endearing attribute was his sense of humor and joyful spirit. Everyone loved meeting and knowing Phil because he was always making them laugh. Despite his many medical problems, he never complained and was always in an upbeat mood.
