Evan Hamblin, age 85, passed away peacefully March 15,
2021. He was loved and will be greatly missed by many. He was born
December 12, 1935 to F. B. Foote and Hazel Hamblin in Kanab, Utah. All
his young life he worked with his dad raising cattle, working on the
ranch, and was a true cowboy. In junior high and high school he was very
involved in sports, lettering in football, basketball, and track. When the
movie companies came to Kanab to film western movies he worked on
many of them. Evan was a great story teller and family and friends
would love to listen to him not knowing if they were true or not. He
moved to Mesa, AZ in 1967, then to Tempe, AZ. In 1969 he went to work
with Prince Gardner Leather Goods and was with them for 30 years.
After retiring he and Shari spent many days in Kanab as that was his
true home. He is preceded in death by his parents, son Mike, daughter
Patti and brothers Metz, Garn, John and sister VerDon. Evan is survived
by Shari, who he said was the love of his life and married for 39 years;
son Max (Elizabeth), who was his best friend; grandchildren Jesse,
Griffin, Teagan and Abby.
