Michael S. Raines
Sept. 28, 1946 - April 8, 2019
In 2019, we lost a very valuable asset and family member of the Evans family. Michael Raines, who was the husband of Judy Evans Raines, had, for many years, filled in when needed at the funeral home, even while working his full-time job.
Michael was retired from Lucent Technologies, a 1964 graduate of Hurricane High School, a veteran of the U.S. Navy serving during the Vietnam Conflict, and was a member of the VFW and Communication Workers of America.
Michael left behind his wife, Judy Evans Raines, a 40 year employee of Evans Funeral Home, sons; Michael (Rebecca) Raines, Jr. of Hurricane and Christopher Riley Raines of Memphis, TN; daughter-in-law, Cindy Raines of Beckley, WV, his grandchildren he adored; Stephen, Isaac, Sophia, Lilly, Suzie, Heather, and Katie, and 2 great-grandchildren, Ella and Oliver; a host of nieces and nephews; special friends from England, Pat and John Archer, and special friends he grew up with, Dale and Shirley Lewis.
Mike's wit, intelligence, and love for his family and country will be remembered by the staff and family.
