Daniel Evans

Daniel P. Evans (Dan), 61, died Saturday December 12, 2015 at his home in Nelson when he chose to end his life after many years of living with depression.

Daniel was born July 4, 1954 in Waterloo, Quebec. He moved out west as a young adult and spent over 30 years living in Nelson where he raised his family. Daniel had a passion for Harley Davidson motorcycles, rock and roll music, vinyl records, and loved to canoe and be outdoors.

He is survived by his mother Lilianne Perrault-Evans; his son Jesse Evans and daughter Rachelle Ray; his two brothers Michael Theriault and Maurice Evans and three sisters Priscilla Evans, Jaqueline Jette, Christine Bolduc; as well as many nieces and nephews, and some very close friends including Gord Owens. He is predeceased by his father Thomas Evans.

A private memorial service has been held.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association:  www.cmha.ca
