Robert Kurt Evans

1975 ~ 2012

Robert Kurt Evans, beloved father, son, brother, and friend, died in a car accident on September 22, 2012, in Washington County, Utah. He was born in Provo on June 14, 1975 to Kent and Annette Evans.

A man of deep integrity, Kurt's greatest love was for his four children. He loved spending time with them, whether it was boating, camping, playing basketball, swimming, going out to breakfast or simply watching football on TV. Kurt grew up in Mapleton, Utah and graduated from Springville High School. He was an Eagle Scout and attended UVSC. His family moved to St. George, and he worked for KV Electric for 7 years. He was a master electrician and commercial electrical contractor who owned his own business, Sandstone Electric. Everyone respected his honesty and quality workmanship.

Kurt enjoyed hunting, backpacking, fishing, and playing basketball with his dad and brothers. He was a talented musician who played the guitar, sang, and composed many family favorites. He loved working with wood and could build just about anything. A health-conscious outdoors man, he ran several marathons, loved rappelling, and recently hiked the Grand Canyon rim to rim in one day. Most of all, he was kind and generous and would lend a helping hand to anyone in need.

He is survived by his four children: Jackson, Emma, Ellie and Charley of St. George; parents Annette and Kent of Mapleton; siblings Nichole (David) Van Valkenburgh of Woodland Hills; Tyler (Alisha) of Mountain Green; Spencer (Amberly) of Farmington; Lyndsie (Solomon) Campbell of Forest Grove, OR; grandmothers Clara Evans and Norma Brady Melzer, ex-wife and dear friend Michelle Button, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles and close friends.
