Everett was raised on his father’s farm in Orangeville; and was the second oldest, and last remaining, of ten siblings. He married Vera and they moved in 1951 to Bank Street Road in Batavia after purchasing a dairy farm. He and Vera, raised five children, and life was full with family, church activities, summer picnics, farm responsibilities and more; and the family has grown to 80+ with the addition of grandchildren, great-grands and their families. He has loved and lost to health issues, two wives during his lifetime; but has felt the love of family and friends throughout his 100 years.

After he sold his cows in 1966, he continued to crop farm, and worked as a welder at Graham Manufacturing (where he was known as “Ernie”) until retirement at age 62. Newly married, Everett and Shirley traveled all around the United States in an RV; especially enjoyed trips to Alaska and Rocky Mountains; and visited the Holy Land. In his 70’s, he and Shirley settled into a Winter Home in Florida and built a cabin on Standish Road in Attica where, in both locations, many great family gatherings have taken place. In his last year of life, Everett has been a resident of The Manor House in Batavia where he reconnected with old friends, made new friends and enjoyed his life there. Until recently, Everett has had relatively good health and reached the age of 100 on May 13, 2023. He attributed his long life to good fresh foods, much physical activity, lots of positive relationships with family and friends; and building his life on strong Christian faith, filled with worship, prayer, fellowship and God’s blessings.
