David R. Evans, 82, passed away Friday, Aug. 23, 2019, at Crestview Specialty Care in West Branch from complications of Alzheimer's.
David worked as a music teacher for his whole career, teaching students of all ages from kindergarten through college. He loved helping everyone enjoy music!

They include his wife, Kerry; son, Peter Evans, his wife, Gina of Ankeny, Iowa, and their children, Maya and Jack; daughter, Jenni Evans Brigson, her husband, Matt, and their son, Charlie of Holmen, Wis.; Christian Ravina, a Spanish exchange student, who lived with the Evanses in Oskaloosa and became part of their family; a sister, Kay McKelvey of Rocky River, Ohio; and many dear cousins, in-laws, nieces and nephews.
His family invites you to join them for the visitation and a celebration of David's life, at Lensing Funeral & Cremation Service, 605 Kirkwood Ave., Iowa City, from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27, for live jazz, libations and snacks! We will share a worship service of music, prayers and remembrances at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Unitarian Universalist Society, 2355 Oakdale Rd., Coralville, with dessert to follow.
