Mr. Marcie William Evans, 81, husband of Sue Taylor Evans and lifelong resident of Saxis, VA, passed away peacefully on Monday, December 24, 2018 at his home.
Born May 16, 1937 in Saxis, he was a son of the late Leland Thomas Evans and Lois Chase Evans. Marcie’s love for the water began at a young age as he worked alongside his father. For most of his life he remained a waterman, owning and operating Marcie Evans Seafood. After decades of running his business, Marcie began working as a full time security officer for Sea Watch International, formerly Eastern Shore Seafood. A collector of many things, Marcie enjoyed searching for hidden treasures at yard sales and flea markets and was especially proud of his stockpile of King Syrup cans. He loved model boats, decoys, and all things relating to his passion for the water. Above all else, Marcie adored his family and there was nothing he wouldn’t do for them.
In addition to his wife of 49 years, he is survived by his four children, Tony Dean Evans of Salisbury, MD, Victor William Evans of Sanford, VA, Michelle Evans Marshall of Chincoteague Island, VA, and Jenna Evans Redmond and husband Ian of Atlantic, VA; three grandchildren, Victor William Evans II, Mason Maxwell Marshall, Alexis Taylor Marshall; and several nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brother, Homer Gerald Evans.
To honor Marcie’s wishes, no public service will be held.
