Joshua D. Evans, age 32 of Batesville, died Monday, November 16, 2020. Born September 10, 1988 in Shelby, Ohio, he is the son of Jane (Nee: Studer) Gartenman and Brian Evans. He married Sarah Nobbe June 1, 2013 at St. Maurice Church in St. Maurice, Indiana and was a supervisor for the Greensburg Honda plant.
Although Josh was passionate about many things, none were more important than his children. He dearly loved spending time with them. According to his family he was also a huge Dallas Cowboys and Ohio State Buckeyes fan, liked all things Scooby Doo related, an avid video gamer and quite a movie buff. The family enjoyed regular movie nights with a big bowl of popcorn, and over 2000 movies in their collection to select from. Elvis Presley’s Girls, Girls, Girls and Caddyshack were among his favorites as well as being a fan of Mel Brooks. They also indicated he loved food and was always trying something new or different…..although his favorite meal was soup of any kind.
