BiographyEvans, Terry E.
Terry E. Evans, 56, of Waverly, New York, passed away Monday, January 11, 2010, after an extended illness. His passing came peacefully after many years of battling his prolonged illness. With a strong, loving family, his faith in the Lord and the support of many church affiliates, he kept his spirits high and his faith strong. He always said, "The Lord will never put on anyone's plate more than they can handle." Terry belonged to the First Baptist Church of Waverly, New York.
Terry was born on December 23, 1953, in Sayre, Pennsylvania, to Leon C. 'Whitey' and Dorothy M. Evans. He graduated from Sayre High School in 1972. Terry truly enjoyed cooking great cuisines and this stemmed from his early years as a short ordered cook of different valley restaurants such as Shortie Nocchi's Hoagie Stand in S. Waverly and the Donut King in Sayre, PA., during his high school years. Afterwards, Terry was employed by Ingersoll Rand in Athens, PA., for many years and retired in 2006 after an accident left him disabled. Terry was also a member of the Montour Falls, NY., Moose Lodge 426. He was also known for his passion and love of animals.
Terry is survived by his wife, the former Mary M. Schuyler, of Waverly, New York; his daughter, SPC. Sherri J. Evans of Fort Drum, NY; his son, SSG. Todd M. Evans and wife, Jennifer, of Fort Drum, NY; his father and stepmother Lettie Evans of Elmira, NY; his sisters and brothers in laws, Nancy and Larry Riley of Athens, PA, Connie and Gerald Chandler of Milan, PA, and Margaret and Thomas Willson of Orwell, PA; his brother and sister in law, Leon and Mary Evans of Big Flats, NY; sister in law and brother in law, Gloria and Robert Ward, Jr. of Waverly, NY; his mother in law, Mable Colvin of Athens, PA and many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. He was predeceased by his mother, Dorothy M. Murphy Evans on February 26, 1982, and his father in law, William (Bill) Colvin on October 30, 2007.

This celebration will be held at the First Baptist Church, 23 Tioga Street, Waverly, New York, on Monday, January 18, 2010 at 1:00 PM. Flowers will be furnished by the family.
