Evan G. Engle, age 103, passed away from this life on Thursday, June 20, 2019. Evan was born one of twin boys on April 2, 1916 on the family farm near Hope, KS. He attended the Rosebank Country School and graduated from Hope High School.

He worked for Munkries John Deere Co. in Herington, KS as a mechanic for many years. He also had a talent for fixing hay balers and during hay baling season he was in high demand.

I first met Evan ten years ago at Village Manor. He was a fine gentleman and I look forward to meeting him in heaven. May the Lord bless and comfort his family. Ken King
