In the early afternoon hours of September 2, 2023, Brother Roy Evers, a faithful servant of the Lord, was called home to his eternal rest. Born on September 27, 1939, in Dawson, Alabama, to the late Elmus Oney Evers and Ella Mae Douglas Evers, Roy was a beacon of light in this world for 83 years. He was preceded in death by his siblings Peggy Evers Buford, Dovard Evers, and his twin Coy Nolan Evers.

Roy was a proud graduate of Fyffee High School in Fyffee, Alabama, class of 1958. Upon graduation, he answered the call to serve his country in the United States Navy. As a “trandevelman,” a troubleshooter for airplanes, a testament to his intelligence and courage. After his service, he continued to use his skills as an Electronic Engineer at the Muzak Corporation, retiring in 2007. Even in retirement, Roy’s love for his work never ceased. He used his talents to fine-tune many church sound systems, a testament to his faith and dedication to his church family.

Roy was a man of deep faith, a pillar in his community, and a devoted family man. He is survived by his loving wife of many years, Norma Kindig Evers, and their two sons, Roy Eugene Evers and his wife Cindy, and Phillip Olen Evers. He was a proud grandfather to five grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. His legacy also lives on through numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family members.

Roy was a man who loved deeply and lived fully. He loved his work, his family, and above all, his Lord. His faith was the cornerstone of his life, guiding him in all his endeavors. He was a man of intelligence, courage, and faith, qualities that endeared him to all who knew him.

As we remember Brother Roy, let us recall the words of the Apostle Paul in 2 Timothy 4:7, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” Indeed, Roy Evers lived his life as a testament to these words. He fought the good fight, he finished his race, and he kept his faith. His life was a sermon of love, faith, and service, inspiring all who knew him.

Roy’s passing leaves a void in our hearts, but we take comfort in knowing that he is now at peace in the arms of our Lord. As we mourn his loss, let us also celebrate his life, a life well-lived, a life of service, a life of faith. Let us remember him as he was, a man of God, a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend.

In the words of the great theologian, Charles Spurgeon, “To be with Christ is far better.” We know that Brother Roy is now in a far better place, reunited with his loved ones who have gone before him, and in the presence of his Lord whom he served so faithfully.

As we say our earthly goodbyes, let us remember Roy Evers, not with sorrow, but with joy, for he has run his race, he has kept the faith, and he is now at rest. His life was a testament to the power of faith, the strength of love, and the courage to serve. His legacy will live on in the hearts of all who knew him.
