Everett began his career at Glendale Memorial Gardens in Toronto where he worked for twelve years as the Superintendent. He later became Co-Owner of MacPherson Builders 1978 (Ltd.) until he suffered a debilitating stroke in 1993. He was very much a people person and will always be remembered for his love of camping, card games, playing horseshoes in the Elgin League and time well spent with friends and family.
