David Hunter Evans

David Hunter Evans, loving husband and brother, and longtime resident of Clear Lake, passed away April 3, 2023.  Born September 10, 1957, in Pasadena, Texas to Charles and Anne Evans, he was a 1976 graduate of Pasadena High School, graduate of The University of Houston (BS ‘91), and member of Clear Lake United Methodist Church.  He was an engineer by trade and was an accomplished musician.  In both performance (trombone/bass guitar) and musical recordings, David found joy and purpose throughout his life listening, playing, and recording music.  He was the biggest fan of the rock band Chicago and NHRA Drag Racing.  But nothing brought David more happiness than cheering on his Houston Cougars.

Preceded in death by his parents and brother Kenneth Lee Evans, David is survived by his wife Deborah Dudley Evans, brothers Charles Evans III (Mari) and Stuart (Kathy), numerous nieces and nephews, and great-nieces and nephews.

A Memorial Service will be held Friday, April 21, 2023, at 11:00 A.M. at Clear Lake United Methodist Church – 16335 El Camino Real Houston, TX.  77062.  (281)488-5110.  A reception will be held immediately following the service.  The family is requesting friends and family wear RED on Friday to honor and remember David Hunter Evans.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The University of Houston M.D. Anderson Library or the charity of your choice.


  1. Only fond memories will forever live in my heart of David and I will hold on to the beautiful cards that he drew for me and my children forever. He always had words of wisdom to share and he always knew the answer to any question I had. Debbie, I love you to the moon and back a trillion times over and I am here for whatever you need. You are never alone. There is a village of people around you that love you and are here to help you through this….

    Fly high David…..
    Play music with the angels……
    May you rest in peace and find pain no more.

  4. David will be missed Debbie. Whenever Ray and Jan left town I always had Davids’ phone number handy. I felt secure even if I did not see him I knew I could call him. You will have many lonely days, but God will get you through them. He loved his music.

  5. You will be greatly missed brother-in-law & uncle. Endless memories of all the vacations we shared in Ohio, Texas and Florida. You are always supportive with your nieces and family. You will never be replaced nor forgotten. Play your trombone loud and long (O-H-I-O). Until we meet again!
    Love you,
    Bonnie, Ray, Brittany, Bill, Bridgette, and Blaine.

  12. I will always remember David. Lots of times while playing the lottery at the Chevron. Having many talks about of u of h. Each convo we had would range from 5 min- 30-45 min. I will always cherish those times with him. He would talk to anyone too. Every time we’d talk, he’d be like “ I gotta get going, I’ll catch ya next time. Wife is callin me” And he’s either have to head home or run to the grocery store.

    RIP David
    Go Coogs!!!
