We have received some truly heart-breaking news. 

Sandra Evans, with her family assisting who did such a wonderful job in organizing our St. Louis reunion and was working on our upcoming reunion, has suffered a terrific loss.  Her daughter-in-law, Rhonda Evans, wife of Sandra’s son TJ,  and two of Rhonda’s nieces, 17 year old Savana Broughton and 15 year old Brooke-Lynn Broughton were killed instantly in a head-on crash with a semi near Beckemeyer, Illinois on July 8th.  The three were killed while Rhonda, from Ackerman Mississippi was visiting her brother.


Sandra and Dwyte’s whole family, including TJ, Rhonda and Sandra’s other son Sandy and his wife Rachel all worked together to have such a successful reunion for our group in St. Louis in 2019. Sandra is the wife of Thomas “Dwyte” Evans, who served at H-3 Hofn in 1968-1969. Dwyte passed away in the fall of 2019, just months after the 2019 St. Louis Reunion.


Services for the two young girls were held July 10th while Rhonda’s services were held July 16, 2022 in Ackerman, MS.
