November 5, 1940 ~ October 18, 2021

Born in: Newton, Mississippi
Resided in: Los Angeles, California

Phillip Evans was born on Tuesday, November 5, 1940 in Newton Mississippi to James Evans and Velma Moore, who affectionately referred to him as “HONEY”. Phillip was the third and final child born of their three children.

Phillip was a Simple Man, who enjoyed the simple pleasures in life. He preferred to fly under the radar in most areas of his life. Phillip was quite vocal with communicating. He was a very proud man who loved to provide for his family and party! In that order! He worked hard, and played even harder! In his hay day, his Thursday night weekly parties were EPIC!!

A huge advocate of self-sustainable means, Phillip loved to work and till his garden in his spare time. To feast on his home grown collard greens was quite the treat! He grew collard greens,tomatoes, lemons and cucumbers and, yes, Cannabis.

You ALWAYS knew exactly where you stood with Phillip The Great! If he loved you, there was nothing he would not do for you! However, if you found yourself on the other side of the coin, whelp, he would tell you about it on that side as well! Saying that the man did things his own way, would be an understatement. Phillip could not hold in a feeling to save his life. He had a phenomenal heart, but was a smidge rough around the edges with conveying that love. You had to understand Phillip, The Man, to understand his sense of humor. The Man was Hilarious!

Phillip met Lavetta V. Nance in 1963, and married her in 1964. I guess when you know, you just know? The two were married March 28, 1964 and together they raised four (4) outstanding children together. Left to carry on his legacy and celebrate his life is: Garry A. Nance (Toni-deceased), Anthony “Tony” Evans (deceased), Tanya A. Evans, and Traci Evans-Dixson (Tiarron). Garry honored him with (4) four Grandchildren – Tishauna Nance, Anthonie “Nina” Nance, Garry A. Nance Jr., and Daniel A. Nance. Traci blessed him with his final Grandson Tyson A. Dixson. His granddaughter, Nina went on to bless him with his Great-Grandchildren Anaya DeLeon and Marlin Patterson Jr.

Phillip was never big on children, but these children definitely softened his heart. He displayed his love for them proudly on his chest.

Phillip may be gone but will never be forgotten, and with good reason!

We Are Trying To Honor My Father’s Final Wishes Of Cremation With “NO”
Funeral , Life Celebration or Memorial Service? Not Even A Repast!!

He Requested To Simply Place His Remains Into His Prepurchaed Mausoleum and Be Done With It?
If Only It Was That Easy?
