Everett worked at John Deere, WG Somerville and Son, and BP Canada – all in Welland. In 1957, after developing a keen interest in hairstyling, he graduated from Bruno’s Academy of Hair Design in Hamilton. From 1958 to 1985 he owned and operated Bon Ton Hairstyling in Port Colborne. In 1985 he went on to work for the Lincoln County Board of Education (now the District School Board of Niagara) until his retirement in 1998. Everett was an award winning gardener, loved to hike and volunteered with the Bruce Trail Conservancy.
In keeping with Everett’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private interment will be held at Fonthill Cemetery. A memorial service to celebrate the life of Everett will be announced at a later date.
