He and his wife, Ellen, were inducted into the U.S. Custom Harvesters, Inc. Hall of Fame in 2000. 

He is preceded in death by his two sons, Doug and Don Evans; granddaughter, Courtney Ellen Cigainero; parents, Elijah and Maggie Evans; six brothers, Charlie, John, Walter, Loyd, Floyd, and E.M. Evans; three sisters, Ruby Irick, Tommie Fullerton, and Jessie Brock.
