Ted Evans died today, April 26, at 12:05 at Kaiser Hospital in Oakland. He was 94 years old. He and Doris celebrated their 74th Wedding Anniversary last May 18th. He had entered the Kaiser Hospice Program only yesterday. Doris and a good number of family members were with him at the end as was The Reverend Carolyn Matthews.
Ted will be buried at Sunset View Cemetery in El Cerrito. Plans for a service will be made in the next few days.
The Evans recently moved from their home on Mandana Avenue to an apartment at The Point at Rockridge. Doris’ phone number remains the same.
For me, if I am remembered as only as that guy who was Ted Evans’ pastor for a little more than 28 years, that will be high tribute.
