It is with sad and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Lovett Edwin Everett, 82, of Sydney. Lovett lost his battle with cancer on Sunday, Nov. 18, 2012, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.
He was born to the late Horace and Gladys Everett on Aug. 6, 1930, in Bridgetown, N.S.
Lovett made his living as a painter, crack filler and vinyl hanger. His work is prominent in many establishments throughout Sydney. He was a great lover of the written word and could always be found sitting, reading a book chosen from his private home library. Other than books, his favourite pastime was stamp collecting which gave him many hours of enjoyment over the years. He loved to play tarabish, cribbage and various other parlor games. On cold winter nights during a power failure he often played Battleship with his children by oil lamp.
Lovett is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Elizabeth (Betty); his six children, Lynn (Richard) McNamara, Riverview, N.B., Debby Everett, Sydney, Kevin (Anne) Everett, Sydney River, Jill (Bill) Hickey, East Bay, Dale Everett, Sydney, and Robin (Kathie) Everett, Edmonton, Alta. He is also survived by his older sister, Viola Stevens who resides at Harbourstone Enhanced Care, Sydney River.
He was predeceased by his brother, Deblois, Bridgetown, N.S.
