Captain Gordon John Evans, Esquire, was born in 1941 to Wilford and Martha (Rogers) Evans in Scranton. The family later moved to Clarks Summit, where his first job was delivering newspapers atop the family horse. He graduated from South Abington High School in 1959 and went on to pursue the American dream. A Naval Academy graduate, Gordon went on to be chief engineer on a nuclear submarine, retiring at the rank of captain. After serving his country, Gordon pursued a law degree at the University of Miami. He went on to become a successful trial attorney, eventually owning his own practice.

His passion for his country was only equaled by his love for his family. During a port call in Guam, he met a beautiful Pan Am flight attendant named Moearii. The two fell in love and were later married. He was a loving father, and near the end of his life, became an incredible grandfather, spoiling his grandchildren terribly.

In life, Gordon had a gravity all his own, being a person everyone wanted to get to know. He cared deeply about people, always seeming to know the right approach to motivate someone through a tough situation. He had many passions, including cooking, woodworking, fine whiskey, gardening and during his younger years, wrecking sports cars in dramatic fashion.

Gordon passed on Sept. 5, 2017. He was surrounded by his loving family at the time of his passing. He is survived by his wife, Moearii; his children, April, Lauren, Ian, Katherine and William; his brothers, David and Phillip; his grandchildren, Malia, Bill, Cameron, Gordon and Evan; many nieces and nephews.

Rest your oar, sailor. We have the watch.
