Carlton Douglas Evans, 73, Peachtree City, died Nov. 2, 2009, after a long battle with Parkinson's disease. He was born Dec. 16, 1935 in Carroll County, son of the late William Linwood and Ruby Brock Evans. He was the first person in his family to graduate from college and was a member of the first graduating class of the Southern School of Pharmacy, now a part of Mercer University. He owned the Hapeville Drug Company and later the Village Pharmacy in Peachtree City, the last independent pharmacy in the town. If a person could not afford their medication, he would gladly accept home grown vegetables or nothing at all.

Services were at the Carl J. Mowell chapel with the Rev. Fred Shelnutt and the Rev. Warren Huddleston officiating. Survivors include his wife of 47 years, Charlotte Chance Evans; children, Charlotte Evans and Tom Finnegan, and William Douglas and Alisa Tillett Evans; seven grandchildren; sister, Mary Cain; and goddaughters, Linda Rinehart, and Amy Riley. Memorial donations may be made to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. Carl J. Mowell & Son Funeral Home, Peachtree City, was in charge.
