While fueling up I always made it a point to stop by Everett's office at the County Garage to see if I could catch him in. He was always good for a laugh or two and always great conversation. Truly sorry for your loss, he was a good man and will be missed by all.

Don and family,
Sorry to hear of the loss of your father, he was a great guy to me both as a kid and a co-worker (as we crossed paths here at the county.)

I just saw the obit in the paper late last Thursday night, and cannot be there for the viewing or services.

My prayers and best wishes are with all of you. May he rest in peace. Jerry Greiner
