WORCESTER-Christopher Roy Evasius, 54, of Worcester, passed away peacefully after a lengthy battle with cancer on Monday, January 24, 2022, in his home.
He is survived by his high school sweetheart and wife of almost 29 years, Christine M. (Chechile) Evasius. He also leaves his daughter Kathryn T. Evasius and sons, Jared C. Evasius and Private First Class Joseph M. Evasius, also of Worcester; his mother, Marilyn (Morrell) Fimbel of Wildwood, FL; brother, Scott Evasius and his wife Jackie of Glendale, AZ; his uncle John Morrell and wife Nancy of Monson, MA and aunt Nancy (Morrell) Santucci and husband David of Kissimmee, FL; many cousins; many nieces and nephews. Christopher was predeceased by his father, Roy Evasius.
He was born in Palmer, raised and lived in Monson and graduated from Monson Jr.-Sr. High School in 1985 and the University of Lowell (now University of Massachusetts, Lowell) in December 1990 with a degree in Civil Engineering. Christopher was the Deputy District Highway Director in District 6 for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. Prior to this, he held various engineering positions with the Massachusetts Highway Department, Albanese Brothers, Bechtel, and the California Department of Transportation.
Although Christopher had many interests, he truly loved spending time with his wife and children, whether it was on a camping trip or vacation or just hanging out at home. He also enjoyed listening to music and playing his guitars. In addition to the time spent with his family, he was involved with the Boy Scouts of America. Shortly after his oldest son joined scouting, Christopher became a Pack Leader for Pack 37 at Christ the King, Worcester and later Cubmaster. He followed his sons from Pack 37 to Troop 37, also at Christ the King, Worcester, as a Troop Committee member and finally as Scoutmaster during his final years with the Troop. Reminiscing about Scout camping trips became a favorite family past time at the dinner table.
Christopher will be missed for his wit, sense of humor, and all around "fun to be around' personality. His love of life, family and friends was evidenced every day and he will be missed.
Visiting Hours to celebrate Christopher's life will be held Saturday, February 5 from 1:00 until 3:00 pm at the Callahan, Fay & Caswell Life Celebration Home, 61 Myrtle Street, Worcester.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to Troop 37, 55 Brownell Street, Worcester, MA 01602 or Dana Farber for cancer research.
