TOM EVANS ESTATE AUCTION
Tom Evans Estate Auction Saturday, October 17, 9:00 a.m. Sunday October 18, 1:00 p.m. 419 Robins Street Tupelo, Mississippi 38804 Stevens Auction Company is pleased to announce its commission to sell at public auction the estate of our longtime friend and coworker the late Thomas Evans of Tupelo, Mississippi. Tom was a well-known pharmacist, floral designer, philanthropist, church, and civic leader. His crown jewel was the yearly Derby Day party which was held at his home "The Shadows" on Robbins Street in Tupelo. In the twenty five years since the Derby day began it raised hundreds of thousands for Regional Rehab and was recognized by Churchhill Downs as one of its most talked about events. The day of his death August 5, 2020 was proclaimed Tom Evans day at Churchhill Downs. Tom cut a wide path in his seventy three years in Northeast Mississippi and he will be long remembered as one of the kindest, most sincere, and benevolent and community spirited souls to ever traverse these parts of the Magnolia state.
