The young farmer and restaurant owner who thought he could make that sausage a little better, was laid to rest today.

However, Bob Evans’ legacy will live on for decades in so many ways.

Bob Evans’ widow Jewell wanted to bring her husband by the home place, the farm house where they raised six children, one last time.

The devoted employees lined the funeral procession lanes at the first Bob Evans restaurant right next door.

How appropriate that the funeral was at the University of Rio Grande. The self made magnate was dedicated to helping teach young people to reach their dreams.

Bob Evans, the marketing icon, the passionate shepherd of conserving natural resources and all things living, was first and foremost a farmer and a champion of keeping the small family farm alive until the very end.

Bob Evans said his year round grazing plan for beef and dairy farmers was the best idea he ever had, and he had plenty.

He also spent nearly a half century in a true labor of love, preserving wildlife in Gallia County and beyond.
