Garland G. Evans
August 26,1954 – January 8, 2016.
We are sad to finally announce the unexpected passing of Garland G. Evans on January 8th, 2016 of Meridian, Idaho. Garland was born in Barstow, California, the 5th boy born to Joe and Sylvia Evans. Garland attended Barstow High School where he loved playing football and was an All-Star running back. Garland graduated from Barstow High School with a full athletic scholarship to Arizona State University. Garland was employed by Sorrento Lactalis Inc. in Nampa, Idaho as a Manager for 14 years. He traveled across the country and abroad while working for Sorrento. He parted ways with Sorrento and started his own business, where he was able to work for himself. He was a hard-working man. Garland touched many lives. He was known as a very caring and loving guy. Garland is survived by his father, Joe Evans Sr., 6 brothers and 2 sisters, and his one and only son, Michael Blackwood of Boise, ID. Go Raiders
Deepest sympathy for Mr. Garland’s family. Death was not part of God’s original purpose for us. Our loving God considers death as his enemy – 1 Corinthians 15:26 – “the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” Death is an enemy that separates us from our loved ones. When death is removed, we will have the joy of our loved ones being resurrected to enjoy life the way our Grand Creator purposed for us…forever on earth. (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9, 11)
