My Uncle John was one of the most sweetest, kindest and most happiest man I have ever known. Him and Aunt Judy always made me feel welcome like no others. He touched every heart he crossed paths with no doubt, I know he touched mine. He will be forever missed. My heart aches for my Aunt Judy, Cindy and Kim and the whole family. Love you Uncle John♡

I will miss his smile and sense of humor. He was such a jokster and always in a good mood! John could also grow anything in that garden of his! He jokingly always called me Fred and I called him Ethel. Rest in peace. You will be missed.

John Everett was truly a wonderful man, husband, father and friend. He was always so welcoming to me, even when I was a pain in the neck teenager. I will always have those memories of him that make me smile. Every time I would come over he would say “Well there’s good old Shori Lanks!” I remember many nights watching Wheel of Fortune with him. I can close my eyes and be right there with him watching him eat those frog legs and that turkey loaf that was always in the kitchen. He treated me like I was family and I loved him for that. I will miss him very much!

Terrie Bartlett says:

We worked with John since 1988. He was a great employee and a great friend. He enriched our lives daily with his jokes and his sense of humor. We loved his radishes!! He will so be missed.

Leighann Travis says:

I loved hanging out at the Everett house as a kid, teenager and as an adult. Both John and Judy made me feel welcome and it was a happy place to be. All of us neighborhood kids feel the same way. John was always smiling, always interested in what I had to say, and he told the best corny jokes ever. So blessed to have known him.

Jens and Elke Steinheimer says:

Some say he was like a father to me, well he was more then that. John was a mentor, leader, listener, comedian, compassionate and understanding he always knew when something was wrong or not right and was always there even when he didn’t have to be. John made me feel special in his own way. He taught me to be respectful, patient to listen to others before making the wrong decision. Most of the time it work. But we all answer for our rights and wrongs in life. As far as my mother is concerned John was a good friend and always made me laugh and smile even. John you will be missed but never forgotten!

I am so glad that you got the see onions be planted one last time. Ryan and I couldn’t have had a better expert to make sure we were doing it right.
