Everett was in the army with his tour ending in Korea. His jobs following that were first in a heat-treating plant, then at an Indiana-Michigan generating plant then as a lineman for the same company.
Everett met and married Dee and immediately started college. In 5 years he earned 5 degrees. Everett's BA is in Cartography and the last 2 are in Educational Media. He worked in Union, MO for 4 years before coming to Chemeketa Community College where he spent 18 years. Everett taught media production and did the production for the college including making the slides (shooting, developing and mounting) audio recording, video studio production including closed circuit production. Everett started working with the first Apple computers when they came out.
Everett started carving late 70ís or early 80ís; he doesn't' really remember, probably very late 70ís.
Everett has carved on the Salem Riverfront Carousel since the first day and continues to carve there today. He helped carve the Glockenspiel for Mt. Angel, OR. and he carved first Prior of Mount Angel Abbey. Everett now carves santas, ducks, caricatures and anything he finds of interest. He mainly carves basswood, butternut, cottonwood, black walnut and maple burl and other wood as desired.
He enjoys cooking and bakes many types of bread, at least 2 times a month for himself and others.
Everett is currently a member of Capitol woodcarvers, Coastal woodcarvers, Alpha Phi Omega - life member, AECT Educational Media, Indiana University life member, and the Salem clubís breakfast and dinner bunch.
