Everett was a lifelong resident of Randolph County, a veteran of the United States Army, retired from Ramtex, and enjoyed part-time jobs until he was 93 years old. As music was a big part of his life, he was a self taught musician learning to play the fiddle and the doghouse bass. He also enjoyed singing and was known for his rich bass voice. Everett loved to perform bluegrass music on the radio with the Hillbilly Pals Band, of which he was the last surviving member. Later he joined the Maple Springs Strings Band, and the Richland Partners Band. He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert H. and Minnie Craven Moffitt.
