OBITUARY: William ‘Willy’ Thomas Evans


William “Willy” Thomas Evans, age 30 of Dickson and McEwen, Tennessee passed away on Sunday, September 17, 2023.

Willy was born on February 18, 1993, in Nashville, TN. He was a son of the late Barbara Dean Brewster and Thomas Eldon Evans.

He worked as a plumber for Schaffer Plumbing. Willy was a fun loving and caring person, who never met a stranger. He was a huge Georgia Bulldogs fan. He loved fishing, dancing and playing cornhole…and if you wanted to make it interesting, he would entertain a wager. He was a great friend, the best brother and uncle you could ask for, he loved his nieces.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Austin Bolton.

Mr. Evans is survived by his sister-mama, Brandi Reid (James), siblings, Karen Jensen (Tanner), Sandy Evans, John Evans, Patrick Evans, and Lisa Evans; his girlfriend, Charlotte Stanford and her sons, Coby and Andrew Stanford; special nieces, Ashley, Emily and Ava Reid. Also surviving are several additional nieces, nephews, cousins; as well as his Schaffer Plumbing family, and Willy’s pets “Blu” and “Larry”.

Willy will be missed often by many people. We hope your memories of him will lead to a smile.

Go Dawgs!!
