EVANS: Tyler James Aaron Stephen Evans, beloved husband of Karleigh Paul and father of Edwyn Evans passed away peacefully on Tuesday, June 22, 2021 at the age of 31 years. He was born in Brandon to Ann and Ralph Evans. Tyler grew up a Brandon boy, attending New Era and George Fitton for elementary school, Harrison Middle School, Neelin High School, graduating from Central High School in Kelowna, B.C. where he also started his plumbing career with Winter Plumbing and Heating. In 2009, Tyler returned to his hometown, where he continued his career with Cancade Restoration, Modern Industrial Structures Brandon, and Brandon Heating and Plumbing. Tyler studied at Assiniboine Community College to become a Journeyman, completing his Red Seals in Plumbing and Gas Fitting. Tyler's coworkers and classmates would no doubt agree that not only was he a skilled tradesman, he was also a joy to work with and brightened their days on the regular. Tyler not only filled his time on the job with happiness, he brought his love home to his family, and filled every moment of his life with memorable experiences. He was a master hobbyist, taking up interests in brewing his own beers and wines, growing his own hops and vegetables, painting nature scenes with oil paints, fishing, hunting, camping, enjoying some good ol' classic rock and roll, karaoke, hosting poker nights and back yard BBQ's, getting together with friends to game and livestream, bringing people together for numerous outings and events, and creating memories with those around him every day. He was the life of the party and lived life to the fullest. Tyler will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Karleigh Paul and son, Edwyn Evans; mother, Ann Evans; father, Ralph Evans; sister, Marria (Wade) Davidson; brother, Bryce Evans; brother, Ryan Evans; sister, Marrla (Andrew) Boxall; sister, Vanessa (Sahba) Zehtab; his nieces and nephews, Jayda, Tarryn, Bodie, Meghan, Maddison, Brooke, Owen, Noah, Leva, Darius, and Cyrus; in-laws Deb, James, and Harrison Paul; and his many friends. He had a way of positively impacting everyone's life he touched, leaving a lasting impression on our lives that we can keep close to our hearts forever. A private Celebration of Tyler's Life will be held at Brockie Donovan Chapel.
