Robert L. Evans, 77, passed away suddenly on Thursday, October 31, 2019.

Bob was born on February 11, 1942 in Granville, NY, the son of the late John F. and Alice (Evans) Evans.

Bob attended Granville School, until he enlisted in the U.S. Navy. Years following, he returned to
the area where he met Marlene, his wife of 43 years.

Bob started his career as a papermaker at Patrician Papermill in South Glens Falls, NY.
He would later move on to Scott Paper in Fort Edward, retiring from there in 2007 under Irving
Tissue after many years of service. During his Scott Paper years, he served as president of Local
2 Paperworkers International Union.

After retiring, he enjoyed his part-time work as security at the Cool Insuring Arena. He
also had a security position at the Saratoga Race Course. He thoroughly enjoyed both these jobs
and met many nice people at each one.

Bob enjoyed hunting and fishing all his life. He and Marlene also spent many years
camping. One special place was with family and friends at a place called “Camp Forever.” We
have some wonderful memories. Bob enjoyed car shows and always regretted selling his 1964

In addition to his parents, Bob is predeceased by his sister Darlene; his brothers Roger,
Donald, and Jackie Evans; and sisters-in-law Shirley (Donald) Evans and Helen (Jackie) Evans.
Survivors include his wife Marlene, their daughter Tricia (Patrick) Columbetti, sons
Edward (Barbara) Morency and Steven Morency; grandchildren Felicity and Jacoby Columbetti,
Madison, Carrigan, and Riley Morency, and Collin Morency; his brother Walter and his wife
Mary; sister-in-law Shirley (Roger) Evans, along with many nieces and nephews.

Bob loved his family and was always there for everyone. We will always love you
Bobbo, and we will carry you in our hearts forever.

At Bob’s request there will be no calling hours. Memorial services will be private at the convenience of the
family. Arrangements are under direction of M.B. Kilmer Funeral Home, 82 Broadway Fort Edward, NY 12828.

Prayers for Bob's family. I worked with Bob at Cool Insuring Arena. I don't actually know his family, but feel like I do. We would share stories of our families ,He enjoyed hearing about the guys hunting adventures and then he would tell me his stories. He will be dearly missed.

Hi Marlene, I am shocked and saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. I miss our days at Scott Paper, but was happy to see you guys at Walmart. I will miss Bob. So sorry for you and your family, prayers to you all.

you may not remember me but I have fond memories of Robert. It goes back to the day of cub scouts. I had set up for a family dinner and had put Mr. and Mrs. Morency. He gently informed me he was not Mr. Morency. After that, I learned to see what the parents names were even though the kids names were different. LOL. Very nice man.
