The obituary in The Austin American Statesmen and Houston Chronicle shares:
"FRANK GARRETTSON EVANS, III, retired Chief Justice of the Texas First Court of (Civil) Appeals passed away peacefully at his home in Bastrop, Texas, on November 9, 2019 at 91 years of age. A man who never met a stranger he didn’t want to get to know better, he always introduced himself simply as “Frank,” before starting an inquisitive line of questions to get to know his new friend. He is indelibly recorded in Texas history for providing citizens with access to justice that improved the lives of countless people who never knew his name, yet benefitted greatly from the conflict resolution methods that he pioneered and implemented, including mediation and arbitration. . . .
"The public is invited to attend a memorial service at South Texas College of Law Houston, Joe Green Auditorium, on November 19 at 11 a.m. . . ." Read the full obituary here.
