He was born April 23, 1943 in Russell Springs. He was the son of the late Shafter and Lena Whittle Harvey.

Everett was a retired truck driver for Sallee Horse Vans of Lexington and an honorary driver for JR Hudson Transport. He loved driving a truck almost as much as he loved a game of Rook and a good conversation with anyone. He never met a stranger and to know him was to love him.

Everett is survived by one sister Louise Johnson of Shelbyville, Indiana, one granddaughter, Jennifer and Dave Sneed, as well as two great granddaughters, Reagan and Maddie. He leaves behind several special friends who were just like family. The impact he had on those around him is indescribable. He was a member of Russell Springs First Baptist Church.

Honorary pallbearers will be Leon Murrell, Gary Lawless, Leonard Gaskins, WT Powell, Garrett Lawless, Sally Robertson, Acey Burton, Brian Crowe, Zack Crowe, Dean Hayes, Jackie Hornback, Buzz Antle, and Gordon Coffey.
