Paul Evans was born at Yale New Haven Hospital on August 5, 1980. He attended Heritage Christian Academy and Hamden High School. For the last 15 years he's been employed by A-1 Toyota in New Haven and has frequently been among the top sales associates. Paul considered the supportive A-1 staff to be his second family. Paul was a true people person who excelled in all his endeavors. He was known for his great sense of humor and his ability to make people laugh. At the age of 19 Paul began his career in the car sales industry and truly perfected his skill. Many people often reported that they felt naturally drawn to him due to his charismatic, down-to-earth, and caring personality. Paul was an avid sports enthusiast; he was especially interested in football and basketball. Loving sports throughout his life, Paul began collecting basketball and football cards in his teenage years. Never would he dare miss a Green Bay Packers game. In his free time Paul enjoyed creating his own successful fantasy football league. Paul's true passion was his family. Despite working long hours, Paul always found time to attend every football and basketball game his son Ethan played. Paul was very dedicated to spending time with his children and most people would tell you that Paul's favorite topic was talking about his wife and kids. Paul was a friend of and attended Gateway Christian Church in West Haven, Connecticut. He had a deep faith in the love and goodness of his Lord Jesus Christ. Paul leaves behind his dedicated wife Leah Tajadod-Evans and sons Ethan and Bryson, his loving parents Tim and Lucy Evans, brothers Matthew and Shila Bhandari-Evans, Josiah Evans, and was predeceased by his brother Luke Evans. Paul also leaves his grandfather Clinton Evans, nephew Lucian Evans and niece Maya Evans, parents-in-law Mary and Jim Stallard and Jay Tajadod, aunts/uncles, sisters-in-law and many more friends and admirers. Our dear Paul was taken from us much to soon. He will always be greatly loved and will be so very, very missed. We love you Paul, your loving and adoring family. Friends may visit with his family on Sunday, September 13 from 4-8 PM at BEECHER & BENNETT, 2300 Whitney Ave., Hamden, and are invited to attend a prayer service on Monday morning at 11 AM in the funeral home.
