Charles Evans

Charles Evans, aged 76, passed away peacefully on March 24, 2024 in Longwood, Florida. He was born on December 25, 1947 in Williamsburg, Virginia and was the only child of Pearl Dixie Barnes and Andrew Jackson Barnes. He graduated from Northeast High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 1967, and later obtained his Associate’s Degree from Broward Community College in Hospitality Management. Upon graduation, he chose to continue residing in Fort Lauderdale where he remained until his retirement.

He pursued a career as a Professional Pool Service Technician for nearly 50 years and was highly awarded for his knowledge and expertise serving local residents and businesses. He enjoyed meeting with his clients and became friends with many as he serviced their pool management needs.

He met Toni Gail Law in 1970 while he was performing at a local venue in Fort Lauderdale. Recently, they celebrated 46 years of engagement and 54 years of commitment to one another.

Music was a deep passion of Rusty’s. He wrote and recorded many of his own songs and spent over 30 years performing in numerous bands. He also enjoyed taking his 1969 Chevy Nova to many car shows. Or if solitude were desired, camping and fishing were his idea of the perfect vacation.

Rusty cherished spending the holidays with his extended family. He was particularly fond of telling stories about his ancestors or reminiscing about his days as a childhood rodeo champion. He enjoyed the company of his pets, and particularly partial to his beloved Dachshunds, Heinz and Fritz.

He is survived by his lifelong partner Toni Gail Law and his extended family members and many close friends.

In celebration of his life, a memorial and car show is being held at Woodlands Park, 110 Western Fork, Longwood, Florida 32750 on Saturday April 27, 2024 at 1 p.m.
