Marshall S. Evans

Marshall S. Evans

October 29, 1976 – January 13, 2024

Marshall Evans suddenly passed away on January 13, 2024 from a heart attack.  He was only 47 years old.  His loss was completely unexpected, and his family is profoundly saddened.

Marshall was born on October 29, 1976 in Omaha, Nebraska to Chris and Steve Evans.  He graduated from Millard North High School in 1995.

After graduation, Marshall worked for various companies such as UPS, Westchester Capital Management, InfiNet, First Data, CRi, BFS, and TNAA.  He worked in the area of IT and web development.  He strived to learn new things and help others have fun at the same time.

In 2001, Marshall met the love of his life, Emily, while she attended the University of Iowa.  They married on March 23, 2002 and soon began their family.  Marshall and Emily went on to have two amazing children, Zoie and Anna.  They were married for 21 wonderful years.  Marshall was Emily’s best friend and partner in crime in this game of life. His personality perfectly complemented Emily’s.  They lived in Omaha with their two children and loving dog, Wicket.

Marshall had the biggest heart and the most beautiful smile. He was very witty and fun! He was fearless and independent, yet sensitive and incredibly compassionate. He loved his family and friends, his dog, traveling, hiking in the mountains, coaching, wood working, video gaming, board gaming, World War II history, Star Wars, watching and attending sporting events, movies, and music.

Marshall had a passion for sports – football, baseball, golf, hockey.  Any given Saturday from the end of August until the beginning of January, you would find Marshall watching and cheering on any college football game he could find – especially the Nebraska Cornhuskers.  Another passion of Marshall’s was baseball.  He grew up playing baseball as a catcher.  As an adult, Marshall enjoyed playing in an adult baseball league.  He coached high school baseball at Mount Michael Benedictine High School in the early 2000’s and then also coached his daughter Zoie’s softball team as well as Anna’s baseball team for many years.  Marshall cherished the time that he coached.  He always carried an extra baseball mitt in his bag so that he could share it with someone who didn’t have one.  His motto that he wanted to instill in his players was to play the right way and to have fun!  Even when coaching came to an end, you could still find Marshall cheering on his previous players as they played in other sports.

In recent years, Marshall dove into a new hobby – woodworking.  He made beautiful pieces of furniture, wooden signs, wooden flags and much more!  He enjoyed learning methods for creating something amazing from a piece of wood and sharing them with others.  He could often be found out in his garage workshop rocking out to his extensive music playlist.

Marshall will be remembered for all the heart he shared with his family and friends. He truly loved each of them- and if you knew him, you knew it. His smile was so stunning it would light up the whole room. He cared so deeply for the people around him. He was so kind and passionate. He made an impact on many lives. He will be forever missed. Until we meet again.

Preceded in death by grandparents, John and Mary Ann King, Robert and Edith Evans.

Survived by wife, Emily; daughters, Zoie and Anna; mother, Chris Denkinger (Bill), father, Steve Evans (Nancy), brothers: Matthew Evans and Nathan (Amy) Evans; step brother, Troy (Lisa) Denkinger and step sister, Brook (Steve) Bufton; nephews, Simon and Callum Evans; mother-in-law and father-in-law, Kerry and Tom Simmons; loving dog, Wicket.

    Marshall was a friend/big brother figure first, boss second. I appreciated how selfless he was, but most importantly his humor. He could help me crack a smile on the most stressful days. I will miss him.
    Prayers to his friends and family, he will be missed.

    My heart is broken for you. You raised two amazing children and I’m honored to call Zoie one of my best friends. Your smile was always a highlight of a visit and you truly were an impact to the world around you. Fly high and enjoy paradise! Much love, Shalom blessings to you all.

    Emily, I worked with Marshall at Fiserv. He was a great business partner. A pleasure to work with and we were so very disappointed when he left. I always enjoyed his sense of humor and a smile- even in the middle of a ‘crisis’. Please reach out if you need anything. I lost my husband two years ago suddenly. I am saying many prayers for your family.

    TO Emily, Zoie and Anna – I am so saddened to hear of Marshall’s passing. I’ve had the chance to work with him the past few years and the words of the obituary are so true. What a gentleman. What an incredibly capable colleague and associate. Everything he touched, he handled with such professional acumen and grace. He was a delight to work with, to laugh with and yes, he loved his baseball. The handful of times I got to hear him speak of his family (the girls) and Emily it was with such genuine joy and gratefulness to be your dad and spouse. Please accept my prayers and sincere condolences to you and the entire extended Evans family.

    Our time at CRi only overlapped for a few days, but he made a huge impact on me in that time. Taught me so much in so little time. You could tell very quickly how genuine of a person he was and how he brought his joy of live to work with him everyday. I remember being extremely upset knowing that I wasn’t going to be able to work with him more. Praying for the entire family and all of those who he impacted who are feeling loss today.

    Keeping you all in my thoughts.

    I worked with Marshall at TNAA and he was simply such a joy to talk to. His smile made me smile even on the tough days. I was thrilled to finally meet in person and talk baseball, hockey, Formula 1, and family when we all went to Denver in November 2022. We shared stories and pictures of baseball trips and games that we attended as well as some of our wooden creations. I loved his quick wit and humor but most of all, his genuine nature. Marshall was such a wonderful human being and I am thankful to have known him for the short time I did. I miss you, friend.

    To his family: Thank you for sharing Marshall with us. I am deeply saddened by his passing and my heart hurts for you all. He spoke so highly of you and had the biggest smile when we shared family stories. You were truly loved by him! My thoughts are with you now and into the future. May his light be with you forever.

    I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to know Marshall. Marshall was a true joy to work with. I always looked forward to working with him on projects because he always had a smile on his face, and he lit up the room with his sense of humor. I loved talking baseball with Marshall, you could tell how passionate he was about the game. I was lucky enough to spend some time with him in Omaha at the CWS. Marshall was always genuine and kind in every interaction and conversation. Our thoughts are prayers are with the Evans family.

  • Kelly Thielen Posted January 22, 2024 1:29 pm

    Marshall was a student of mine at Kiewit Middle School. I will always remember that big smile and his positive nature. Sending you my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

    Sincerely,
