Douglas Robert Evers

On Friday, Feb. 12, 2021, Douglas Robert Evers went home to be with his Lord and Savior at the age of 72. Born on March 13, 1948, in Rhinelander, the son of Robert and Florence (Erickson) Evers, he lived in Rhinelander and the surrounding area for most of this life. Harshaw was his home for the last 36 years.

As a child, Doug lived across the street from Pioneer Park where he got into typical kid shenanigans, including, as he liked to tell the story, using his little red wagon as a boat to float to the middle of a lake when he was four. He graduated Rhinelander High School, Class of 1966. He then attended the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point where he graduated with a bachelor's degree in biology and met, in a bowling class, his wife of 50 years, Kathy, who he married on June 20, 1970. Together they raised two sons, Charles (Chuck) and Eric, and two daughters, Wendy and Heidi (his Dido). He owned and operated Eversco Ltd and Living Nutrition since 1981 in the Rhinelander area where he was able to help many people over the years with their health and well-being by supplying vitamins and supplements.

Doug was also a firm believer in Jesus Christ who both led people to and worked to strengthen the knowledge and faith of believers in the Lord. Always an outdoor lover, Doug enjoyed hunting, fishing, family boat rides, and trap shooting. He adored watching his grandchildren grow and spending Papa time with them, especially beating them soundly at card games.

Doug is survived by his wife, Kathleen (Jenista); his four children and their three spouses, Chuck and Jen (Lewandoski), Eric and Cori (LaBarbera), Troy and Wendy (Evers) Thompson, and Heidi Evers; his five grandchildren, Zachary, Samuel, Elijah, Owen, and Luciana (to him Missy Muffin), and a beloved granddog, Spicy; and his sister, Juliane (Evers) Hallum. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his younger brother, Charles.

A visitation for Doug will be held at the Carlson Funeral Home at 134 N Stevens St, on Thursday, Feb. 18 from 4 to 6 p.m. Masks will be required and social distancing will be observed for all in attendance. Private family services will be held on Friday, Feb. 19, 2021 at Faith Baptist Church on 23 E Timber Drive, Rhinelander, at 1 p.m, with Pastor Mark Ring officiating.

Everyone is welcome to join us online for a live stream of the service at In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be sent to Faith Baptist Church. You may leave your private condolences for the Evers family at The Carlson Funeral Home (715-369-1414) is serving the Evers family.

I was a classmate and friend of Doug and although I have not seen him in many years I have fond memories of those high school days.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family during these difficult times.
