Donald Sidney Evans III, 51, of Imlay City, Michigan, passed away April 9th surrounded by his family and friends.

He was born on September 11th, 1972 in Rochester, Michigan to Donald Jr. and Patsy (Ward) Evans. Don earned his mechanics certifications at Pontiac Northern and served his country in the Army Reserves. He was a firefighter with the Imlay City Fire Department from 2003 until 2014. Don opened the beloved Don’s Auto Repair in 2007 and served his community faithfully. To be a customer of Don’s was to be a friend of Don’s.

Don loved the Lord and his faith was steadfast. The profound effect Don had on his family, friends and community was immeasurable and he will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

He was an avid and accomplished hunter, fisherman and outdoorsman. Don co-captained the Silver Addiction in Ludington, Michigan.

Don is survived by the love of his life, Lisa, and his children Donald Evans IV, Caeliegh (Hunter) Galbraith, Ty Evans and his faithful hunting companion, Dakota; his parents Donald Jr. and Patsy Evans; his siblings David (Jessica) Evans, Jayde (Kevan) Riley, Tasha Evans and many nephews and nieces.
