Billy F. Evatt, 81, of Greensboro, NC, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, August 1, 2017. He spent his last days surrounded by family and friends.
Born June 1, 1936, he was the son of the late Frank and Edna Evatt of Anderson, SC.
Bill was a devoted member of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, where he dedicated much of his time to the fellowship of the Men's Club and to the kitchen ministry. Both personally and professionally, Bill was passionate and driven, and poured himself completely into every endeavor he took on. Some of his favorite activities included tending to his garden, feeding the birds around his home, and looking out over the ocean from his condo at Carolina Beach.
He is survived and adored by his wife of 59 years, Harriet P. Evatt, son Chris Evatt (Jennifer), daughters Angie Pappas (Darrell) and Julie Moore (Joe), and six grandchildren. Their Poppy was their "sunshine" and will be missed dearly.
A memorial service will be held at 4:00 PM on Friday, August 4, 2017 at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. The family will receive friends in celebration of Bill's life immediately following the service. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, 607 N. Greene, Greensboro, NC 27401 or to the SPCA of the Triad, 3163 Hines Chapel Road, Greensboro, NC 27404.
