William Hume Everett, Iii

October 26, 1936 — September 1, 2019

On September 1st, William (Bill) Everett passed peacefully at St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, OK, after relocating from Casper with his wife Margot. Bill is survived by his wife Margot Everett, their two sons, Wayne W. Everett (Susan) of Tulsa, OK, and Keith R. Everett (Cyndy) of Redwood City, CA. Bill leaves behind three grandchildren, Mason Everett (Amber) of New York, NY, Benjamin Everett of Waco, TX, and Grace Everett of Tulsa, OK. He also leaves behind two brothers, Robert F. Everett of Walterboro, South Carolina and Jackson, WY, and A. Rodgers Everett of Jackson, WY, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Born in San Antonio, TX, Bill grew up in Casper, WY where he graduated from Natrona County High School in 1954, followed by attendance at the United States Naval Academy, graduating in 1959. During his tenure as a Navy Submarine Officer, Bill met and married Margot Belisle McKnight of San Diego, CA. After serving in the Navy, Bill and Margot relocated to Lincoln, NE where he attended the University of Nebraska Law School. The family returned to Casper where Bill was a partner with his father, Hume Everett, in their law firm. After several years in Casper, Bill accepted a position as General Counsel for Terra Resources in Tulsa, OK. His career with Terra/Sempra Energy ended in Dallas, Texas, when he was able to return to his beloved Casper, WY, where he joined the law firm of Williams, Porter, Day, and Neville.

In retirement, Bill pursued his recreational loves of fly fishing, boating on Alcova Reservoir, flying his plane around the state, and building and refurbishing firearms. While in Casper, Bill was active in the Casper Rotary Club, the Masonic Lodge, the Central Wyoming Fair and Rodeo Board, of which he was Chairman, 1996-1997, and the Greater Wyoming Boy Scout Council, for which he served as President in 2000 and 2001.

Bill will be forever missed with his gentle demeanor, dry sense of humor, soft voice, gracious smile, and hearty laugh. A special service in Bill’s memory will be held at Schaudt’s Funeral Home in Tulsa, OK on Saturday, September 21st at 2:00 P.M.
