of Little Rock, AR
August 9, 1939 - April 26, 2021
Majel Wayne Evans, Sr., 81, of Little Rock, Arkansas was called home on April 26, 2021. He was born on August 9, 1939 in Quitman, Arkansas to Willie Floyd and Leatha Evans. Majel drove a truck for most of his life and retired in 2001. He enjoyed driving and there were many times he would return from a trip and mom would have all of us kids packed up for him to turn right around and head out again on a vacation or camping trip.He loved staying busy and working with his hands. If he wasn't out building something in the shop then he was out somewhere making repairs for someone. If he couldn't fix it, it was truly broken!The animals! Oh, the animals! He loved tending to and spoiling the animals chickens, ducks, turkeys, dogs and cats (and whatever else happened to come into the yard).There is no doubt that anyone that met him LOVED him and he was, indeed, a great man who was truly loved by all. Mom had been patiently waiting for him since 2007 and now the wait is over. They will wait patiently for the rest of the family together, side by side.Isaiah 46:4 Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.Psalm 147:3 He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds.Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife of 47 years, Linda Evans; brother, Roland Evans; sisters, Bonnie Walter; and Connie Baker.

Tonya, Jack, and family:The service honoring Mr. Evans was lovely. Please accept my condolences. You continue to be in my prayers as you face the coming days without him.
He was definitely on of the nicest and coolest men I've had the pleasure of knowing. I'll never forget going to their house in the early 80s ,playing in the yard,then hearing a lot of crazy screaming coming from the house,me running inside to see what was the matter and it turing out to be everyone yelling for the Razorbacks! Good times.
Tonya, words are not enough to express our deep sadness in your loss. Majel was an amazing father and I know that each of you loved him dearly as well as your mother. He will be deeply missed, leaving a void that will be impossible to fill. Our hearts and prayers are always with each of you.

So sorry to here about Majel, didn’t know he was sick or anything and was surprised to hear of his passing. I called him occasionally to see how he was doing and wish I would have called him more. I have made a lot of trips with him at A B F and was always glad to hear he was going with me again. A good man and a true friend and will miss him. My prayers are with all the family.Never ready for a time like this.
To me, Uncle Majel was always the cool, hip, young uncle! I had not seen him in many years, but my fondest memory will always be his great smile! Our prayers are with his family .
I met Majel in 1959 when he started dating my sister. He was a wonderful husband to my sister. Not only was he my brother n law, but also a great friend to me. I will miss him very much.
I think of all of our time we spent at the lake together with Aunt Joyce, Uncle Ronnie, Ronnie Lynn, David, Nicky. Those were some of the best times. Majel Sr. always took us to Sugarloaf Mountain. We didn’t have a care in the world. My heart goes out the family. He was a great man who loved life and his family!❤️
Majel, Steven, Tonya, and family, What a beautiful obituary. I am praying for you all during this difficult time. I am so sorry you have to go through this. I have so much love and respect for your dad. He was truly an amazing man, husband, father, and friend. I love you all so much and will be thinking of you. Love, Sheri

He was the best uncle you could ask for! Most of all he was true loving man to my aunt and his children! We will miss you!
Majel was just one of them all around good guys and I was blessed to know him.
Uncle Majel will be greatly missed. He was a great uncle and some of my best memories growing up are when our families were together. Those camping trips to the lake were so much fun as well as those vacations we were able to take together. Tonya I will never forget that vacation when you wanted to blow dry my long hair and it got caught up in the blow dryer motor!! Between Uncle Majel and my daddy they were able to get it out without much damage but their reactions were priceless as it was smoking!! I know in my heart that not only was Aunt Linda there waiting for him but daddy (Roland) was too!Our thoughts and prayers are with ALL of you!
Majel was truly a wonderful Brother and Uncle He will be greatly missed..Our prayers and thoughts are with the Family.
Majel and I were classmates. I spent several nights at his house growing up. He was a good friend who will be missed.
