Surviving are a son, Terry Everts of Sheridan;  a grandson, Terry Lee Everts II;  his best friend and companion, Bonnie Palmer of Edmore;  two sisters, Judy Johnston & Bill Jorgensen of Greenville, and Susan & Joseph Ringleka of Stanton;  a maternal aunt, Rose Davis of Lansing;  and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Honoring Terry's wishes, cremation has taken place and private committal services, with military honors, will be held at East Montcalm Cemetery in the spring.  Instead of flowers, contributions in memory of Terry are suggested to the donor's favorite charity.
