Burleson, Texas – On Wednesday, October 7, 2020, Heaven grew ever brighter
with the arrival of Everett H. Summers, 90. He was a loving Christian husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
He was born on Sept. 21, 1930 in Cheyenne, Oklahoma to Gladys L. Cassady and Thomas H. Summers. Everett married the love of his life, Virginia (Holcomb) Summers, on August 8, 1953. They met while he was serving in the Armed Forces in the Korean War. After serving a few more years, they became engaged and made plans for a future together which lasted for 67 years.
He was employed by Bass Enterprises for the latter portion of his life, 38 years,
until he retired as Treasurer in 1992.
He and Virginia were both very active in their church, First Baptist Burleson, where they spent tireless hours doing what they both loved most, serving the Lord. Everett looked forward to being with his Maker and anyone who knew him, knew this. He lost his battle with cancer, but never complained and was steadily strong in his faith to the end of his life on Earth.
He will be greatly missed – a rare individual with strong values, principles,
honesty and a hard worker always with a smile on his face.
He is survived by his wife, Virginia Summers; three sons, Michael Summers, Larry Summers (deceased) and Philip Summers and his wife Kathy; grandchildren, Adam Summers, Nathan Summers and his wife Alisha, Blake Summers, Chandler Summers, Paige Summers and Megan Summers; and great-grandchildren, Breanna Summers and Madeline Summers.
