Aaron Reed Evans

May 13, 1988 — February 2, 2024


The celebration of life service for Aaron Reed Evans, 35, of Birmingham, Alabama will be Friday, February 9, 2024 at Seasick Records. Aaron's choice of finger foods, dessert, coffee and icy cold Miller Lites will be served in his honor starting at 6 p.m. The service follows at 7 p.m.

Aaron was born in Omaha, Nebraska to Raye Lynn Hendricks Evans. He was the youngest of three brothers and was often quiet, but he became the family comedian as he grew older. Aaron was known as a loving, caring and selfless husband, son, brother, friend, son-in-law and dog dad. He was an avid fan of WWE wrestling, Alabama football, movies, music, hilarious t-shirts, and he was a secret connoisseur of sourdough bread making. One of his favorite wrestlers, Kevin Owens, famously said about his wrestling career, "I'm genuine, and I think people can see that when they watch." Just like his favorite wrestler, it was his genuine love and friendship that attracted his friends, family and loving wife, Stephanie, to him.

He is a graduate of Pinson Valley High School in Pinson, Alabama where he played tennis and worked at the Jefferson State Community College Admissions office throughout high school. After graduating high school with honors, he went on to study computer science at the University of Alabama in Birmingham. Aaron loved to play D&D, go to baseball games, concerts, bars and he loved to hang out with his boys in Birmingham. Aaron worked in admissions at Birmingham Southern College, the University of Alabama and recently accepted a job at the University of Montevallo Advancement Office. 

Aaron, above all, strived to be a caring and thoughtful husband to his wife, Stephanie Maria Evans. The couple met online and soon had their first four-hour long date at Books-a-Million where they both understood what love felt like. They were married August 14, 2020 at Aldridge Gardens. Stephanie and Aaron traveled many places during their marriage, including North Carolina down the yellow brick road, Texas to hang out with family, Gatlinburg for his favorite coffee, doughnuts and roller coaster rides, Savannah and St. Louis to visit friends. 

Though Aaron and Stephanie loved to travel, what they cherished most was at home - their dog children Oscar, Mollie and Ringo. Mollie and Ringo have since passed, but Aaron continued to care for Oscar like his own flesh and blood. Oscar can't talk, but if he could, he'd say he was missing his dad.

Aaron had several hobbies, but one he enjoyed recently was poring over bread recipes. He often said that bread making, something he'd picked up during the pandemic years, was treacherous. He labored over his starter, and he baked dozens of sourdough loaves that friends and family members savored each and every time. When he wasn't satisfied with the outcome of a loaf, he would think of creative ways to help out his starter and bake the perfect bread. As a son, partner and friend, he was much the same. He always knew when to say the most uplifting thing at the right time. He was a loving friend to all. 

Aaron is survived by his wife, Stephanie Evans, his mother Raye Lynn Evans, his brother Justin Evans, his brother Corey Evans and wife Natali, his niece Lillie, his nephews Jon Michael, Will and Carter, his aunt Kim Ball and her husband Michael Ball, and his cousin Joshua Slaughter. Aaron was also loved by Stephanie's parents Ronnie and Terri Clifton and her family. He is preceded in death by his beloved Gee-Mur, Ruby Davene Hendricks and Gee, Harvey Ray Hendricks. 

As part of Aaron's last kind and genuine act on Earth, he made anatomical donations to Legacy of Hope, an organ donation facility. Now, more than 100 people will carry Aaron's kindness and love with them everywhere they go. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer's Association, the Shelby Humane Society or your local humane society.

The celebration of life will be held at Seasick Records, located at 4420A Fourth Ave. S in Birmingham, Alabama beginning at 6 p.m. Aaron's wife Stephanie asks that all whose lives were touched by Aaron attend his celebration of life wearing something casual, like a favorite t-shirt, in memory of her husband.
