Noah Evans, 13, of Franklin, TN passed from this life into the loving arms of His Savior on January 14, 2021 surrounded by his family and friends in the comforts of his own room. Noah was ushered into Heaven with prayers, praise, and love.
Noah was born in Auburn, Alabama to Tom and Lori Evans on May 28, 2007. He attended the Auburn Early Education Center and Auburn Classical Academy while residing in Auburn. When Noah moved with his family to Franklin to help plant 5 Stones Church, he attended both Poplar Grove and Hillsboro Schools. Noah loved to play soccer with Williamson County, Hillsboro School, and the Tennessee Soccer Club. Noah enjoyed taking Improv classes and performing in musical theater productions with CYT (Christian Youth Theater) and Hillsboro Players. Noah loved to play Pickle Ball, had a wicked serve that earned him the nickname “Ace” on the court, and could be heard rapping the music of Hamilton “Non-stop”. His most proud accomplishment was earning “The Rose Award”, given to the castmate that most exemplifies Christ, during the run of the CYT show, “Tuck Everlasting”, during which Noah was diagnosed with a brain tumor, had brain surgery, and began chemo and radiation treatments. Noah had a passion for his family, humbly serving God, and genuinely loving and encouraging everyone he met. He represented Jesus Christ in the most beautiful way, living a life of servanthood and joyful suffering so that others might come to know the deep love of the Father.
Noah is survived by his parents, Tom and Lori Evans; his older brother, Nathan, and younger brother, Elijah; his grandparents, Doug Bernia, Debra Cannon, Tom Evans, and Janice Evans; his Aunt Christy Lukasik and family, Uncle Todd Evans and family, and Uncle Jeffrey Bernia and family.
