He was born November 29, 1941 in Saltville, Virginia, a son of Bob and Margaret Evans.   He married Bonnie Price on December 20, 1960 in Tennessee.  They would have celebrated their 63rd anniversary later this month.

Carl moved to Rantoul in 1960 and was hired on to work at the Rantoul/Ludlow Co-Op Elevators.  He and Bonnie had 2 children, Jeffrey (Sharon) Evans of Marion, VA and Lisa Evans of Rantoul.

He was preceded in death by his brothers, Bobby Evans and Walter Evans and 2 nieces, Vicki Perry and Cindy McNew Vineyard, as well as his parents.

Hired on in 1960 by Mr. Horner, he worked his way up, becoming operations manager in 1967 and continuing to manage up to 6 elevators.  He was a valuable asset to Ludlow Co-Op and retired on January 1, 2006.  They  brought him back and he worked another 2 years before his final retirement in 2008 after 52 years of service. Carl was a volunteer firefighter for Ludlow Fire Department from 1968-1974.
