Obituary of George E. Evans, Jr.

George “Shorty” “Snowplow” Earl Evans, Jr., 47, passed away on August 17, 2021, at his home in Pottstown, PA. Born in Pottstown, PA, on April 20, 1974, George was the son of Barbara J. (Auman) Fry and the late George E. Evans, who passed on February 10, 2020.


Shorty graduated from Pottsgrove High School in 1992, and was a “Jack-of-all-trades” who worked for multiple companies over the years. He had a passion for vehicles, and enjoyed watching races at Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA, and even racing his own car in the demolition derby. He loved plowing snow (hence the nickname, “Snowplow”) and tinkering with CB radios. Above all else, Shorty lived for his six sons, who will miss him greatly. 


In addition to his mother, Shorty is lovingly remembered by his stepmother, Joyce Evans; his sons, Dustin Evans, Charles Ogin-Evans, CJ Ogin-Evans, Lukus Ogin-Evans, George Evans III, and Corey Evans; his brother, Michael Evans; his sister, Stephanie (& Jeremy) Robertson; his stepsisters, Lisa (& Donald) Smoyer and Jennifer Mayberry; and many other family and friends.
