Basin Harbor mourns the passing of Dr. William H. Everett, of Williamstown, MA. Dr. Everett began coming to BHC with his parents at the age of 3, in 1933, and was a frequent visitor ever since.
He worked here as a teenager, acting as a driver for A. P. Beach, and working on the waterfront of his beloved Lake Champlain. One of his amusing recollections was unloading many bags of cement from a boxcar in Vergennes that would be the floor of the new Main Dining Room, built in 1946 after WWII ended. He came every year since he was three and was also was the boat captain while working at the waterfront.
Dr. Everett is survived by his wife, Gintare Sileika Everett, and his two children, Patricia Everett, of Amherst, MA, and James Everett of Chapin, SC, and three grandchildren. All of us here extend our most heartfelt sympathies to his family and friends.
