Everett farmed until 1995 and then worked part-time at Figi’s and Russell’s of Neillsville. He was also very active in his community, serving on the Fairview School Board in the Town of Weston, the Neillsville Farmer’s Union Cooperative Board and St. John’s Lutheran Church Council. He was a lifelong member of AMPI, Foremost and Pure Milk. Everett was an honest and friendly man and was liked by all. He was a great father and husband who served as a role model to his children in many ways. His favorite times were spent with his family, attending grandchildren’s and great-grandchildren’s activities. He also enjoyed doing Sudoku and watching sports on TV.
