Jim Evans (June 17, 1949 – July 25, 2016)

Jim Evans, age 67, died peacefully on July 25, 2016, at his home in Silt, Colorado. He is survived by his loving wife, Debbie, of 40 years and a sister, Vicki Underdahl, of International Falls, Minnesota, Christina Caravaca, niece, of Beaverton, Oregon, and Michael Underdahl, nephew, of International Falls, Minnesota. Per Jim’s wishes a memorial service will not be held. Jim was an avid gardener so it is our intention to have friends and family gather next spring to plant a garden in Jim’s honor. He loved anything technical and was also a Ham Radio Operator. Other interests included fishing for Northern Pike in Canada. Jim’s career was with the U.S. Forest Service, and he and his wife Debbie worked for the Forest Service in Idaho, Montana, Oregon and finally Colorado. Contributions may be made to cancer research or HomeCare and Hospice of the Valley if desired.
