Evea Lollie | Obituary

Evea Lollie passed away on

Tuesday May 19th, 2020 at the

age of 94 years old. He died

peacefully within his home in

Kirkland, Washington with his

children by his side. Evea was

born on January 24, 1926 in

Jena, Louisiana to Rebecca and

Frank Lollie.

At the age of 17 he moved

to Washington state to work

in the Bremerton shipyards

during WWII. He would go on to make a life in the

Puget Sound area and eventually help his whole family

move there from Louisiana. He dreamed of being a

businessman at a very young age and started and ran a

successful minority owned cleaning business, Well Done

Service Co, where he offered opportunity to those who

may not have gotten it anywhere else.

Evea was a man of strong faith in God who always put

others before himself. He was a good father who always

took care of his children and grandchildren. He did

the best he could to teach and guide them as a loving

grandfather and exemplary father figure to many.

Mr. Lollie is survived by his five daughters Zada Hall,

Rita Barrow, Carolyn L. Reynolds, Rebecca Priest,

Jennifer Coffey, and his son Evea Lollie II. He also leaves

behind 14 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, 6

great-great-grandchildren, and many beloved friends

and relatives.

A memorial service will be held at Acacia Memorial

Park when large group restrictions are lifted. Further

information can be found in their online obituaries when

it becomes available.
