March 6, 1976 - December 27, 2021
Brandon Emerson Evans “And if you take of my soul you can still leave it whole with the pieces of your own, you leave behind. We came for salvation. We came for family. We came for all that’s good that’s how we’ll walk away. We came to break the bad. We came to cheer the sad. We came to leave behind the world a better way. And I would give up everything. And if you were to come up clean, and see you shine so bright in a world of woe. And they may pay us off in fame, but that is not why we came. And if it compromises truth then we will go.” ‘Salvation Song’ by The Avett Brothers In love, we all celebrate the life of Brandon Emerson Evans. He came into this world always a peacemaker March 6, 1976 with light and courage, searching for the mysteries of the universe. His mission was to bring peace and love to his family and friends. His parents are Edmund Emerson Evans and Pamela Christine Loader Evans Peterson. He has two sisters Dareth & Sarah and a brother John. His sisters adored him and his brother was his first friend. He was a wild and crazy child, full of laughter and humor. He loved pulling pranks. He loved all animals and had every kind of pet. His favorite was a seagull that he nursed back to health until it flew away. He loved to fish and hunt with his Grandpa Loader and Uncle Kendal and later his son, Adam. He was very proud of his ward calling as a young men’s leader and enjoyed the ward camping trip with Adam and all the young men & leaders. He often said, his proudest moment was the day he baptized Adam. He carefully prepared for that day and planned every detail himself. His first son, Radley Tyler Emerson Evans was born April 4, 2006, to Ashley Pugmire. He is always loved and remembered by Brandon and our family. Brandon posted ‘Happy Birthday Wishes’ every year. He married Shelley Lucille Shobe and they had a son, Adam Terry Edmond Evans born on April 24, 2007. Adam was his first, best friend and went everywhere with him. It was just the two of them until they found their forever love and the third part of their team, Jenni Elizabeth Fager Evans. With Adam’s encouragement she married Brandon on August 8, 2016. From then on, the 3 best friends continued exploring the world for all of its mysteries. Brandon tried his best to teach them how to love and serve one another. He gave complete strangers the coat of his back and many a meal while they were on adventures together. He was greeted on the other side by both sets of grandparents, Emerson Whipple & Marian Alma Noelte Evans, and John Raymond & Beverly Lucille Loader, father Edmund Emerson Evans, Uncle Kendal Loader, and a darling niece Brooklynn Dani Evans. In passing he left behind his loving wife Jenni, sons Radley and Adam. Parents Chris & Morgan Peterson, siblings Dareth & David Kennedy, Sarah & Landon Crist and brother, John Evans. His father and mother in law Jim & Katie Fager, siblings John & Rowanna Fager, Noah & Sarah Fager, Matthew & Jessie Fager, Adam & Janessa Fager, Annabrielle & Dallin Davis, Felicia & Brooks Robinson and Jill Jacobson. Uncles and Aunts, Kane & Virginia Loader, Kent & Jean Loader, Kendal’s widow Jamie Loader-Smith, Elizabeth Hanson, Margaret Evans, and Katherine Evans. Many cousins, nieces & nephews and so many lifelong friends who loved and adored him. He enjoyed making new friends through his life. Everyone will surely miss him getting their ‘goat.’ The burial took place January 6, 2022 at 1:00 pm at the Salt Lake City Cemetery. Grave dedicated by John Thomas Fager and presided over by Bishop Taylor Brammer. Funeral and Celebration of his life will be announced on this website at a later date.
