Frank James Nibarger SR,

Born July 27th 1951 to James and Lela Nibarger. Frank passed away unexpectedly on July 12th 2023. Frank was a life time resident of Evanston, who loved his neighborhood and community. Frank was a graduate of Evanston High School, and went to the University of Wyoming to study Engineering. On September 9th of 1972, Frank married Anita Searcy, and in there time together, Frank JR and Stephanie were born. Frank and Anita later divorced.

Frank’s passion for life lead him on numerous adventures. From taking his Wet Bikes to Bear Lake or his Sand Rail (Dune Buggy) to the dunes. Frank never stayed still. He palled around in the Uinta’s cutting wood, camping, and picnicking for more years than we can count. We watched out for each other through the years and he did so much for his little city block that he loved so much. He was always there to lend a helping hand.

Frank worked for FMC as an Underground Mine Foreman, but his passion for painting would be found at Ellingford Bros, where he spent the majority of his time. After retirement, Frank would spend his time on his model trains, RC boats, RC cars, and drones with his dogs by his side.

Frank is survived by his son Frank JR, of Florida. Daughter and son-in-law, Stephanie and Christopher Dean of Evanston. Sister Judy and brother-in-law Mike Scheuerman of Oregon. Grandchildren Quinten Nibarger, Madison Biebinger, and Davin Dean. Great Grand Daughters Lilly and Violet. Frank is survived by his dogs, the love of his life, Boomer, Ruff, Diamond, and Debbie.
