Biddeford, ME – Kenneth Mark “Kenny” Evans, 56, of Biddeford, died on Sunday, April 16, 2017 at Mercy Hospital following a prolonged three-year battle with cancer.
He was born in Biddeford, ME on January 1, 1961, the youngest of seven children, to the late Franklin and Janette (Libby) Evans.
A class of 1979 graduate of Biddeford High School, Kenny was self-employed as an independent contractor and carpenter for thirty-five years throughout Southern Maine. An active member of the Sons of the Amvets Post #1, Kenny enjoyed spending evenings at the club with his friends, playing darts, horse shoes and cribbage. Kenny had a passion for the outdoors, including hunting, fishing and growing vegetables in his garden; growing more than he needed so he could share with everyone, especially his pickles. He also shared his time, skills and knowledge as a carpenter with friends and family and was also an avid reader of science fiction and adventure stories.
Kenny is survived by his longtime partner Debbie Underwood of Biddeford; his children Christopher Evans of Windham, Cory Underwood of Biddeford and Lee-Ann Craig and her husband Aaron and their son James of Sagamihara, Japan. He also leaves his four sisters Judy, Dumont and her husband Larry of Biddeford, Beverly Berry and her husband John of Waterboro, Dale Huot and her husband Ron of Arundel and Susan Simkuowitz and her husband Dave of Saco as well as his brother Jim Evans and his wife Nancy of Hudson, FL. He was also the brother of the late Stanley Evans and his wife Sue Evans.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend a celebration of life on Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 4:00 – closing at the Amvets Post #1, 147 Alfred Street, Biddeford.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Kennebunk Animal Shelter and will be consolidated at the celebration of life.
