Everett served his Country with pride and honor during WWII and was awarded the Silver Star and two Bronze Stars while in service. He worked for the Hanna Mining Company and was a Mining Union member for many years, he was instrumental in building the Pilot Knob Assembly of God Church and pastored there, and was a “jack-of-all trades”.
