I got to know Everett at the nursing home in New Lebanon while working with him in Physical Therapy. He was always so pleasant, friendly to everyone. I also enjoyed hearing/sharing stories of Farmersville, my hometown too and How he also went coon hunting with a relative of mine, Dane Garwood. Everett was the type of person that made the world around you a much better place he will be truly missed, Pam Hawvermale Michael

I love the memory of his voice in choir solos. Yes, he and Emma were Farmersville icons. What a privilege to grow up in small town America with families like the Clines. That generation is nearly gone, and so many of us left the village for parts beyond, but our hearts are still there. My sympathy for your loss. It is never easy to say goodbye. We look forward to the 'hello' when we meet them all again in heaven. God bless and may He give you strength on days when memories bring a sadness to your heart and a tear to our eyes. A friend once said "don't cry because it is over, but smile because it happened". The life of Everett touched many.

To All the Family, I am very sorry about the loss of Everett. I remember him so well, and as my father always said "God only takes the Best" My thoughts are with you during this difficult time, God Bless, Robert Flynn and Family

Mark & Amy, Kathy & Harry and all the rest of the family. We are so sorry we cannot come pay our respects to this great man and your family. We loved Everett and he never failed to honk and wave to us as he passed our house and we were outside. We always enjoyed the many conversations we had with him over the years we knew him.

So sorry to hear of Everetts passing, he was a great man who loved his family and his community very much. Him and Emma both was very caring people, that touched and blessed many lives in their lifetime. I pray for the family and friends that they find the strength to get through this hard time and the peace of knowing what a full and fruitful life he lived.

Everett Cline was my uncle. When I was young, Everett amazed me with his various calls to the squirrels and birds. I marveled at his archery skills and the deer he had mounted on the walls in his home. When I was older, I got to know Everett as a gentler, wiser gentleman who was the patriarch of our family. After my father (Harold Cline) passed in 2014, Everett took me under his wing and treated me like a son and my children like his own grandchildren. I will miss him very much but am so grateful that I was blessed to be his nephew. RIP my good man.

Everett was one of the sweetest people I have ever met. I saw him every day at the nursing home. He loved the birds in the front lounge and would sit and talk to them. Kathy and Harry I enjoyed our nightly talks as well. Im sorry we didnt get to see each other the last three weeks because of the lock down. Hopefully when this is over you will come in and see us all.

Everett was an icon across from the Gisewite household for many many years. He and Emma were the best. Everett will be absolutely missed by us and anyone that knew him in the community. We are definitely loosing some of our best people in Farmersville. Our heart goes out to the family
