Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger reacted to the news of Mr. Evans death this morning.
“News about Steven Evans passing is truly shocking. Steven was an outstanding Hamilton County Public Works Department employee who spent 16 years serving the people of Hamilton County.
Steven was a road crew leader for the brush cutters who go out every day and make sure our roads are passable when debris or trees block our roadways. A lot of people appreciated the work Steven and his crew did during the debris clearing in the aftermath of this month’s tornadoes.
Fellow workers today told me that Steven was a dedicated worker who never had a bad word said about him. One person described Steven as a sweetheart, a true southern gentleman, the nicest guy you would ever meet.
Most importantly Steven was a loving husband, a father of three and leaves behind to his daughters, Ashley, Brooklyn and his son Bailey, a legacy of commitment to this community. Our thoughts and prayers are with Steven’s wife Christal and their children.”
