David L. Evans, a retired printer and former trucking company owner, died of cancer Thursday at his daughter's home in Ellicott City. He was 65.
Mr. Evans was born in Baltimore and raised in Essex, where he attended Kenwood High School. He was an apprentice in the late 1950s at Fleet McGinley, a Baltimore job printer.
He was a printer at the old News American from 1967 to 1969, when he took a job at the U.S. Government Printing Office in Washington. In 1979, he established Evans Transportation Inc., a trucking company he operated until selling the business in 1992.
He then returned to his former job in Washington and worked there until retiring last year.
The Greenbelt resident enjoyed trap shooting and coin collecting.
Mr. Evans was a member of Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Greenbelt, where services were held Saturday.
Surviving are his wife of 20 years, the former Angie Turner; two sons, David T. Evans of Columbia and Christopher Evans of Woodbine; two daughters, Kathleen Canby of Ellicott City and Susan Hennegan of Abingdon; a stepson, Jeff Morris of Pasadena; a brother, Joseph Evans of Ocean View, Del.; and six grandchildren. His marriage to the former Pat Sweeney ended in divorce.
