Evan Daniel Franklin, 25, passed away too soon on September 23, 2020. He was born in Norfolk, VA to Donn Leigh Franklin and Sandra Holloway Williams. Evan is remembered as a gentle giant, a protector, and a hard worker. He had a servant’s heart and never met a stranger. Evan was a big movie buff and an avid listener of heavy metal music. He always lent a helping hand to those in need and was selfless to the very end. Evan loved his job as a glazier (glass worker), he prided himself on his work and always worked toward an amazing product (employed at Walker and Laberge). Evan was witty and fun loving, always putting a smile on people’s faces; he was so accepting and loving of everybody. Evan loved his friends and family fiercely, with all his heart.

Left to cherish his memory are his mother, Sandra H. Williams (Lee); father, Donn L. Franklin; sister, Chloe B. Franklin; maternal grandmother, Gwen Holloway; paternal grandparents, Robert D. and Addie Mae Franklin and numerous other loving family and friends. He was predeceased by his maternal grandfather, Marvin Holloway.

A service to celebrate his life will be held on Monday, September 28, 2020 at 11am at Graham Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 1112 Kempsville Rd., Chesapeake. Please visit his Book of Memories at where you may view the service if unable to attend or to share a story with the family.

Donny, Sandra, and Chloe, I did not know Evan, but I can only imagine that he was both beautiful and creative very much like his mom and dad. The photos illustrate the love that Evan had for his sister. His parents must have done something right in order for these siblings to be so close. I remember you both, Sandra and Donny, from my IRHS marching band days. My heart breaks for you. God bless your hearts.
