Obituary

Henry Walter Evonsion, 95, of Canton, husband of the late Barbara (Hansen) Evonsion, died Tuesday, January 19, 2021 at Cherry Brook Health Care Center. He was born October 23, 1925 in Hartford, son of the late Carl and Mary (NaRonyk) Evonsion and had been a lifelong resident of Canton. Mr. Evonsion was a Dairy Farmer at his family farm in North Canton for many years. He had a great love for the animals, and although he retired from milking cows at the age of 78, he could still be seen driving tractors well into his late 80s. He was a member of North Canton United Methodist Church, the North Canton Fire Department, and the Connecticut Milk Producers Association. Henry enjoyed his life on the farm and on occasion, getting to do some traveling.

He is survived by his two daughters, Diane Evonsion Tyburski and her husband Joe of South Carolina and Susie Baldwin and her husband Jay of Georgia; his son, David Evonsion of Canton; his sister, Eileen Baedor of North Canton; his grandchildren, Thomas, Michael and Megan Tyburski, Emily Evonsion and Brent and Paige Baldwin; five great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by a son, Henry W. Evonsion, Jr., three brothers and two sisters.

The family would like to thank Cherry Brook Health Care Center for the compassionate care they gave to Henry.

A graveside service will be held at 12 Noon on Monday, January 25th at North Canton Cemetery on Cherrybrook Road in North Canton. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to North Canton Methodist Church, PO BOX 311, Canton, CT 06059. The Vincent Funeral Home of Canton is caring for the arrangements.

I was linked to Henry both by his kids on the school bus and by haying. As I grew into adulthood, I had many chats with him. Returned his dog Tucker ( I think that was the name, quite a while ago) once. Many times driving on 309 we would wait for the cows to cross, that is truly a time gone by in North Canton. One time I drove past and he was working on his tractor. I'm not sure why, but a voice said stop and see. So I stopped to see what was going on. Henry was hunched over a tractor trying to jump it but it wouldn't crank. I offered to help, and after a few tests determined one of the jumper cables was intermittent, and kept it from cranking enough. I reached in my pickup for my set, and connected them. Tractor started right up. I know I went up a few notches in Henry's book that day.

In later years, his hearing faded, but we still had chats, only I would bring a note pad, no amount of yelling was enough by then. So he'd talk and I'd write. Goodbye old friend - Jeff Miller

when I was a kid Rick and I would help Henry in many fields bail and stack hay, but if there was a snake in one of the bails he would tell us to "kick it off!!" He did not won't any part of it.
R.I.P. Henry.

Rob Henry jr was the same way when it came snakes on a bale of hay he hated them, apples did'nt fall from the tree.
