“We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will” (Chuck Palahniuk).
This statement sums up the life Remus Evans lived. Remus was born December 6, 1925. He was a master carpenter by trade but loved to collect antiques. His prized collection includes toy tractors and glass elephants. Remus was serving his country in WW2 and was aboard the SS Leopoldville on December 24th, 1944, when the ship was torpedoed by a German U-boat. While 763 men died that night, Remus survived the attack.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Louise Evans on February 3rd, 2017 and daughter-in-law, Linda Clark on May 20, 2020. Left to cherish his memory is his daughter, Judy (John) Renfrow of Beaver Dam; sons, Pat Clark of Beaver Dam and Greg (Debi) Clark of McHenry and a brother, Ray (Ruby) Evans of Hartford. He is also survived by two grandchildren, Mandy (Billy) Clubbs and Mary Ann Clark. He leaves behind seven great-grandchildren, Keely Clubbs, Maddison Clubbs, Gracie Clark, Jacob Clubbs, Wyatt Harris, Hoyt Clark and Harvey Clark and two great-great grandchildren, Hazel Pendley and Charlie Beth Doss. He also leaves a cherished friend and co-worker for over 40 years, Paul Moseley.
