Sidney Evers Obituary

Sidney Evers, 92, of Peoria, Illinois passed away on October 7, 2023 – just after the conclusion of the Buckeye Football Game. He was born on October 10, 1931 in Peoria

Sidney served in the Illinois Air National Guard before transferring to the US Air Force where he served honorably during the Korean War. After completing his military service, he began a career at Caterpillar Inc. in mechanical testing. He later worked at B&B Electronics as National Sales Director overseeing the marketing and Trucker displays at truck stops across the country. Sidney combined his love of travel and camping by working at Ricart Airstream sharing his passion for Airstream campers. He and his beloved wife, Muriel, traveled extensively across the United States in their Airstream until her untimely passing.

Sidney was preceded in death by his wife, Muriel Evers; his son, Nicholas Evers; his brother, Jim Evers and sister-in-law, Elizabeth Evers.

He is survived by his daughter, Marielle Seaver; granddaughter, Katrina Seaver; son-in-law, John Seaver; his partner of 16 years, Fran Day; and many cherished nieces, nephews and their families. Sidney is also survived by his chosen family, Don, Ethelyn, Donesha and Donnie Starks, as well as Fran's extended family who brought him much joy.

Sidney approached life with a great sense of humor, a zest for living and sincere caring for others. However, he staunchly disliked cheese.

The family requests that any memorial donations be made in Sidney's name to Motts Military Museum, one of his favorite places to visit. No service is planned at this time. He will be dearly missed by all those whose lives he touched.
