Drake Evans was born on April 16th, 2000, at 9:30 p.m. in Redding, California. He left this world in the early morning hours of September 27th, 2022 at the young age of 22.
Drake brought joy, light, and love to every single person he met. His infectious, warm smile, and confident hand shake, impressed and brightened each person fortunate enough to encounter them. He loved hard ... with his genuine and pure heart displayed on his sleeve every day. He was the most kind, caring, passionate, and family-oriented young man you could ever hope to meet. With an intense love of sports, the Kansas City Chiefs had their number one fan in Drake...they just didn't know it. (We'll pass on that message.) This was his heart, character, and being ... through and through... each and every single day.
Drake Evans is survived by his parents, Travis and Beth Evans, and Cristy and Kalei Mizuta; his siblings, Leiandra Evans, Alexander Evans, Dena Bleam, Eli Mizuta, Emma Jones, Kayla Mizuta, Kalei Mizuta, and Danny Mizuta; his grandparents, Kathy and Lionel Williams, Russ and Iryna Evans, Larry and Judy Scofield, Jon Stefancik, Gene Fletcher, Starla and Roger Crowell and Wes Collette; his aunts and uncles, Amanda Hester, Tami Lansford, Jennifer Torrence, Dan Scofield, John and Jessye Scofield, Lahi Lahi Fox, Abby Cecil, Tom Hall, Craig Fletcher and Eli Mizuta; his many beloved cousins; and finally his dearly loved partner in life, Jesse Rapper.
He will be dearly and truly missed.
