Morris C. Evans

Chilhowie, Va.

Morris C. Evans, forever 29, went to his Heavenly home, Wednesday, January 8, 2020 with his family and friends by his side.

Morris was born in Pineville, W.Va., June 12, 1942 to the late Thelma Caudill. He grew up in Bluefield, W.Va. where he met the love of his life, Kathy Totten Evans. Morris was a retired DJ and worked at several radio stations in the area, with the last being WXMY in Saltville, Va. His radio name was “Mike Michaels – the Rock-N-Roll Daddy.” His love of music will live on through his son and grandson.

Morris spent the last 30 years of his life living with his family in Chilhowie, Va. He will be remembered for his captivating good looks, mesmerizing charm, witty sense of humor, knowledge of music, talent as a DJ and most importantly, his favorite role – being a papaw.

In addition to his mother, he was preceded in death by his sisters, Jean Barlett, Sharon Beckelheimer, and Anita Rook; brother, Junior Caudill; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Ernest and Gracie Totten; brother-in-law, David Totten; and most recently, his very special and much loved pet, Binky.

Morris is survived by his loving wife and best friend, Kathy Totten Evans; daughter, Mandy Phipps and husband (his special son-in-law), Mac; son, Scotty Surber and wife, BeBe; youngest daughter, Angel Evans; pride and joy grandchildren, Ethan and Akaylia Phipps, and Cali and Cameron Surber; brother, Rick Dillow; brother-in-law, Donnie Totten and wife, Mary; sister-in-law, Barbara Totten; several nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family on both sides; and his much loved church family and friends at Friends Community Church.

A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, January 11, 2020 at 2 p.m. at the Friends Community Church, 145 Palmer Avenue, Saltville, Va. 24370 with Pastor Mike Maiden, Pastor Kedrick Johnson and Pastor Jackie Branson officiating.

So sorry to hear of your loss. I met Morris when I was in high school and worked at Borden Burger (BBF) back in the 70s He and Stan and a few others always came in there. He worked at Heck's at the time and I used to see him there when I'd stop by to say hi to a friend of mine. He was always a good friend to everyone and loved by all. I used to see him at the flea markets several years ago after I married again and helped my husband on the weekends at the flea market. I knew it was him and said hello but he said that wasn't his name. I think it was because he didn't remember me. I just laughed and told him to have a good day. I would always say hello when I saw him anyway. He was a good man and I enjoyed the video and seeing all of the old pictures and the new ones. I'm very happy he had such a loving wife and family. I'm very sorry for your loss and his family and friends are in my prayers. Linda Musick-Akers

Kathy, Mandy and family, I am sorry for the loss of Morris. He was a good example to every one he met, humble greeting everyone he met with a big smile and a good man loving his family. I am sure God was a big part of his life and was there to comfort him during the times of his illness. Hugs and prayers for you Kathy and all the family as I will not be able to attend the funeral.
