We first met Everett while he was involved in our Antique Mall in Plymouth, Ohio. He was a man of exquisite taste in antiques and decorating. His life brought music and beautiful poetry to the world. He had a quiet sense of humor and had interesting conversation. We remained friends even after the business relations were over. We enjoyed our visits with him at his home and he was always happy to talk to us on the phone. We are grateful to have been his friend. David & Sheila Tackett & family
Sorry to hear of Everett’s passing. We have enjoyed working with him the past few years. He was a kind, gentle spirit.
Sorry to hear about Everett. He was a very good person. Enjoyed talking to him.
Everett gave me kind words of encouragement and understanding over 40 years ago when it seemed like no one cared. It meant so much to me that, a man who knew me the least, could help me so much with just a few caring words. He truly was a kind and gentle spirit.
Everett was the hub of the “Wheel of Friendship” that surrounded the lives of many good people in the Richland County area. A larger than life personality, with a kind and gentle spirit. He held many very diverse people together as friends and brought them together in his home as guests to join in celebration of life and the love that this big hearted man could give in true frienship.
To quote a dear friend, Larry Wise,often said
“Peace be with you.”
I worked with Everett at Shelby Salesbook GAF or whatever it was called back then, we worked together on 2nd shift and first shift as well. Always enjoyed talking to him. I have a signed book of his the first one he had written. I lost track of him after he had gotten married. May you rest in Peace Everett.

I met Everett when I was first dating my husband, Jim, to whom I have been married for 34 years, through his sister Penny, who was a friend of Everett. He was a kind and gentle man. I have several books of his poetry which I have enjoyed reading over the years.
