Updated: Mar 21, 2022

Brandon J Evans 34 of Dallas Center, Ia. Passed away Sunday, February 20th, 2022.

Brandon was born April 16th, 1987, in Des Moines, Ia. to Bruce Evans and Tracey Smith. He lived most of his life in New Virginia, Ia. graduating from I-35 High School.

Brandon worked construction. He created beautiful things out of wood, he had an inventive mind. Brandon was an avid reader always wanting to learn all he could, he loved to debate about things he learned, which, in his mind meant, he was going to prove someone incorrect at some point. He was a great cook, creating delicious meals for everyone to enjoy. He enjoyed anything outdoors, gardening, hunting and even tried surfing in the Pacific Ocean this year. He always had a smile on his face and had the biggest smile and best laugh. Besides debating he loved to make people laugh, always pulling practical jokes or saying bizarre comments. He is going to be missed by many.

Brandon said his favorite person to call and debate with was his Grandpa Gary. Brandon said, "grandpa was the only person he could debate with, without them becoming angry". They would talk for hours about everything and nothing. They had a special bond.

Brandon enjoyed long conversations about a plethora of topics with his oldest daughter MacKenzie. His youngest daughter Emma has the same sense of humor as he did. He loved his girls and was proud of the young ladies they are becoming. He always said, "They were his best accomplishment in life". He will be watching over them as they navigate life without him by their side.

Brandon liked to tell everyone he was a mama’s boy. He would remind his mama that he was her “favorite baby boy” every time they spoke, his ma’am is going to miss him terribly.

He is survived by his parents Bruce (Lori) Evans, New Virginia, Ia., Tracey Smith, Dallas Center, Ia., daughters MacKenzie and Emma Evans, Altoona, Ia., brother Jeremy Evans, Iowa, Grandparents, Gary Smith, Patterson, Ia., Peggy Wright, Slater, Ia., Marilyn and Etsel Evans, Winterset, Ia., Aunt, Kristin Cumberland, Pittsburgh, Pa., many cousins, and the love of his life, Melissa Roe, Des Moines, Ia.

He was preceded in death by his Aunt Karen Evans and Aunt Angie Smith.

A celebration of life is going to be held April 30th. An announcement will come out later.
