A walk-through viewing on Friday, January 8th from 5pm-7pm at Anderson-Ragsdale Mortuary. Private Cremation will follow.
GORDON MARK EVANS, affectionately known as “Gordie” by family & friends, was born in San Diego, CA to Rachel and Walter Evans. He was the Apple in his mother’s eyes; but, even with all the love she had for Gordie, she still had more love to give to her children, Haywood and Shelia, her Guardian son and daughter. Together they were a Family.
Gordie worked several years at National Steel and Ship Builders in San Diego. After that and before his health began to fade, he was a wonderful caregiver for many years to his patient, Mike who was quite fond of Gordie.
Gordie was such a wonderful and devoted son. He took care of his Beloved mother for many years until the day she passed away.
Gordie was known to some of close friends and family as “GoGo” and “Gomez”. If you look at him enough, you can see a resemblance to Gomez Adams of The Adams Family TV Show.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Rachel Tucker; step-father. Robert Tucker; brother, Haywood; uncles, Simeon and Ernest “Sarge” Collier; and aunts, Felisa “Kitty” Williams, Mary Agnes “Aggie” Jackson, Birdie Baldwin, and Tomasa “Bossie” Reed-Collier.
He is survived by his sister, Shelia Jackson; niece, Katrina Ross, nephews, Kaden Haywood Ross and Kobe Gordon Ross; aunts, Nettie Collier and Adeline Alexander; uncle, William “Pally” Collier; and a host of cousins, friends and family.
