Evan Griffith

Chelan, WA

Evan Griffith, 85, a kind and thoughtful man, died suddenly Sunday, June 23, 2013, at his home in Chelan. Evan was a lifetime resident of Chelan, having been born on Johnson Avenue on May 19, 1928. He was an orchardist with his two brothers, Willis and Jim (Griffith Bros. Orchard). Evan was Chelan’s Foremost milk man for 32 years, taking time to throw a ball or pass out Dixie cups to all the kids. Evan really enjoyed the kids and was involved in the youth sports programs. Evan was married to his high school sweetheart, Myrt, on October 7, 1949.

He is survived by his wife, Myrt; two sons, Jim of Chelan and Andy (Pat) of Manson; one daughter, Wanda of Seaside, CA; three grandsons, Jake, Johnny and Jay; one granddaughter Brandy; and his brother, Jim (Ruth) of Manson. He is also survived by his much loved nieces and nephews, who called him “Uncle Abe” for his honesty. He was preceded in death by his parents, Elgin and Anna Griffith; and brother, Willis. We will miss him; he truly is irreplaceable.

Services for Evan are Friday, June 28, 2013, at 11:00 a.m. at the North Shore Bible Church in Manson. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice or the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society. Services have been entrusted to Precht Rose Chapel in Chelan.
