Kerry S. Everts
Kerry S. Everts, age 65, passed away unexpectedly on January 1, 2021 at his home in La Crosse, Wisconsin. He was born in Hortonville, Wisconsin on December 13, 1955 to Shubert ”Bud” and Marilyn (Schwebs) Everts. He was baptized, educated and confirmed at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Hortonville.
In 1974 he graduated from Hortonville High School where he had been active in athletics, band and served as a class officer. He went on to study at the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse (1974-78) and made LaCrosse his permanent home. He was employed at Wis-Pak, Inc. for more than 20 years, where his schedule enabled him to fit in a lot of late-afternoon golf. In 2019 he achieved a hole-in-one on a par 4, 250-yard hole (an “albatross”- a rare accomplishment). If he wasn’t out golfing you could find him at Sam’s bar, cheering for the Minnesota Vikings, or at home snuggling with “the cat he never wanted” Odesza.
But Kerry’s real focus, pride, and energy in life was for his children, Colton and Hallie, which has proved to be a fruitful investment.
Kerry is survived by his children, Colton and Hallie; siblings Mark (Sandy) Everts, Becky (Bruce) Meyer, Kyle and Cory (Amanda) Everts; nieces and nephews Kendra, Carly, Jaxon and Ezekiel Everts. He was preceded in death by his parents, Bud and Marilyn Everts; and former father- and mother-in-law Willard and Dorothy Otto.
There will be a Celebration of Life at Sam’s Bar in La Crosse, Wisconsin on January 30th. The celebration will begin at 1pm and has no set end time.
Coulee Region Cremation Group is assisting the family.
