In fond memory of Horace Michael Everett
Horace Michael ‘Mike’ Everett came into being on August 18, 1944 in Water Valley, Mississippi, and entered eternal rest on October 16, 2021 in Farmington, New Mexico after a brief illness.
Mike preceded his parents Henry M. and Louise B. Everett, an older brother, John Everett of Mt. Juliet, TN, and two siblings who died as infants in Water Valley, MS.
Mike leaves behind his 41 year old loving wife, Dessie E. (Teninty) Everett, sister, Thelma B. House of Aztec, New Mexico, brother, Bill J. Everett of Aztec, New Mexico, sister-in-law, Doris, J (Teninty) Faulkner Granbury, Texas, brother-in-law, Billy L. Teninty (Edna) of Wilsonville, Oregon, numerous nephews, nieces, and extended families across the country.
Mike enjoyed all the outdoor activities, hunting, fishing, prospecting, camping, fooling around in the mountains and growing Concord grapes as a hobby. He served in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam era and was honorably discharged in 1969. His professional career spanned many years in Mississippi and New Mexico, including liner operators, tugboat, IC Railroad, City of Farmington Water Plant, The Western Company, City of Aztec Utility Department, 21 years at various propane companies as a service technician, driver of a coal truck and Substitute classes in the Farmington School District.
Mike loved to laugh at a joke or a prank … he was the eternal teenager when it came to pranks. Over the years he loved his dogs, talked on the radio, and talked to his friends. Mike has never met a stranger and would help anyone who needed her. Whenever someone tried to pay for their meal to thank them for their military service, they would ask that they buy some red silk roses instead and leave one on each of the graves of the various veterans in the cemeteries … in memory.
