Lyle Wayne Evans

January 28, 1942 — June 12, 2024


Kia ora, Lyle Wayne Evans, 82, passed away surrounded by his family on June 12, 2024. 

 He was born in Bothwell, Utah at home on January 28, 1942 to Wayne Alvin Evans and Juanita Mary Roche. 

Lyle married the love of his life, Linda Rae Ashby on July 30, 1965 in the Logan Utah Temple. They were happily married for 59 years. They were blessed with four children, Chad A. Evans, Lori Jo Wilcox (Bryce), Blake Lyle Evans (Holli), and Mindy Rae Hassell. 

He grew up on a dairy farm in Bothwell, Utah, where he developed his love for work alongside his parents and three siblings. Lyle had a love for his dog, his horse, his sports and his mischief. Lyle graduated from Bear River High School where he excelled at wrestling, football, baseball and track. He cultivated lifetime friendships that he still holds dear to this day. 

Lyle, at the age of 21, made the decision to serve a mission. He served his mission in the Auckland, New Zealand area for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The lessons from his mission, his unwavering testimony, and love for the Savior have profoundly shaped the lives of his children and grandchildren and will live on through them. He made a lasting impression on everyone he met, and he genuinely cared about everyone.  

When Lyle returned home from his mission he attended Utah State. At that time in his life, he met Linda the love of his life. He was determined from that day forward to make her his wife. Lyle and Linda married and started their life together. They built a house in Hooper and made it a “home” for their children and raised their family. Lyle firmly believed, “The best thing a man can do for his children is to love their mother." He lived that every day through his words and actions. 

First and foremost, Lyle loved the Savior, and cherished His teachings. He valued the wisdom that came through his daily scripture study. Lyle spent every day working hard for his family. Whether it be loving his wife, supporting and loving his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren he gave 110% with insane drive and passion. 

Lyle was in the banking and finance business and walked away to become a builder. One of his greatest accomplishments while working for Big D Construction was building the Ogden  Utah Temple and moving and restoring the Daughters of Utah Pioneers building. 

Lyle had many loves: old friends, new friends, telling stories, food, “Bebbler”, horses, hunting, not fishing, guns, rodeos, fast pitch softball, coaching football, building, sideline pep talks, tractors, missionary work, the 49ers, BYU football, western movies, Christmas Eve, singing, laughing, talking, joking, teamwork, New Zealand, and Matthew Cowley.
