EVERETT, Jerry - With heavy hearts, we sadly announce that on February 12, 2020 Jerry has left the building. His final fire has been put out.
He prided himself on winning his battles with words. He led a good life and had a peaceful death, but the transition was a tough one. He did not lose his battle with cancer, the cancer died so technically it was a tie!
Beloved spouse of Heather Capon. Father of Michael (Kieu) Everett and Tracey Everett (the late Ken McRae), grandfather of Rachael, Minh, James, Kanae, Shannon, Alyssa, Michelle and Kyle and great-grandfather to Benjamin.
Dearest twin brother to Larry Everett, Mona Everett (the late Lloyd Colwell) and Eva McLaughlin.
He will be lovingly remembered by Heather’s family, her mother Margaret Noble, daughters Brooke Capon (Kyle Bryans) and Meaghan Capon (Derek Hall) and grandchildren Aaron, Emma, Rylie and Brayden.
Sadly missed by his best friends Earl MacKinnon, Deb Abraham and former spouse Iva Everett.
The family would like to express their extreme thanks to the staff at both Lakeridge Health Oshawa and Bowmanville for the outstanding care that was shown to Jerry.
Honouring Jerry’s wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
Memorial Donations may be made to Durham Region Cancer Centre.
