Ron Wayne Everett, A.K.A. Ronnie, was a bright light in this dim world. His humor, laugh and smile were contagious. He always had a hobby to keep him busy when he wasn't busy at work or playing and being goofy with Noah. He taught Noah and I, Bridgett Everett (wife), something new and useful every day. He was brilliant, kind, selfless, rational, and persistent on finishing anything that needed to be done. Each hobby (customizing and building: guns, cars motorcycles, computers, and airsoft equipment, and also playing video games) was a passion and a pain for him, at times (always replacing parts on his vehicles, especially the motorcycles). But he loved being a father to our son, Noah. He even said if he lost both legs in an accident he would still ride, with artificial legs, and that he died doing what he loved then he died happy. He was the most loving, caring, protective, kind, thoughtful, and silly in the best ways possible, husband and father.
He is survived by his wife (Bridgett Everett), his son (Noah Everett), mother (Linda Harbick), sister (Lynnie Everett) and brother (Steven/Stevie Harbick). He also had many cousins (Nikki Trentham, Kristina Coley, Elisabeth McElroy, Hannah Goodman, Tammy and Jason Ford), In-Laws (Greg and Liana Gray, Loretta Gray and Casey Gray), Aunts (Jeanne Carlson, Diane Goodman, Evelyn) and Uncles (Peter Carlson, Craig and David Harbick) all over the Country, just to name some. Thank you all for the love and support of our sweet Ronnie/Ron Everett. May his kind soul rest in Heaven, and in our hearts, forever.
Ronnie was only 29 years old when he passed in a horrendous vehicular accident in Knoxville, TN (where he most currently resided) on Saturday, February 18th, 2023. He was born in Santa Ana, California where he lived in Irvine, California (and Orange County areas) until he was about 12 years old. He would skateboard at his Uncle Craig's shop and meet Tony Hawk numerous times to skate with, as he told me with so much excitement. He loved family so much, especially his Grandma, Ione Harbick (who had preceded him in death and was sure welcoming Ronnie in with open arms in Heaven). He moved to Farragut and Knoxville, Tennessee when he was about 12 years old, and had resided in Knoxville, TN for the remainder of his life. Here he met very good friends, Tyler Russell, Derek Drummings (basically his Brother-In-Law), Malachi Henry, his wife (myself/Bridgett), and many others over the years.
We miss and love him so so much and wish he was here with us, but now he is a free spirit, free of Earthly pains, but forever gone too soon, at only 29 years old/young.
We love you Ronnie, very much.
