Evan Davidson Hibbets was born on December 10, 2010, in Hattiesburg, MS and was a light to all who met him. He peacefully fell asleep early in the morning of November 3, 2019. Evan’s name means, “God is gracious, beloved son,” a profound truth that echoes through the ages and is the promise of our future. We were blessed to enjoy 8 years full of good memories with Evan. Everyone who met him would comment on his contagious smile and his joyful laughter. He always found the small adventures in everyday life like waiting for the school bus or hearing another version of Happy Birthday sung just for him.
