Passed away December 26th, 2017 from the Charles S. Curtis Memorial Hospital in St. Anthony at the age of 91 years. According to the Government, Everett was born in Spillard’s Cove (now called Straitsview) on September 22nd, 1926. However, it is more likely that he had been born a year earlier (in 1925). The Government decision was based on Census information, because birth records had been lost- perhaps because of fire. This decision was made when Everett was well on in life, as is often the case when birth records have been lost. Everett set his hand to whatever work was available. He fished, hunted, and trapped. During the winter, he was busy knitting and mending cod traps. He became a good carpenter and built a number of schools and many homes. On Sundays, he walked down to the Church and rang the bell (which meant that all the children went off to Sunday school). It was when Everett had went to Raleigh to fish that he met Jessie Bessey. The two celebrated 65 years of marriage together. They grew a new branch of the Blake family tree which now includes nearly four dozen descendants. He leaves to mourn his wife, Jessie Blake; Sons, Dennis (Donna), Garry (Betsy), Cyril, and Hedley; Daughters, Cindy (Jim), Dale, and Velma (Barry); Brother Wilson; Sister-in-law Marie (Widow of Brother Garfield) as well as 14 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren, and two great-great grandchildren, and a large circle of extended family and friends. Everett was predeceased by his parents, James and Martha Blake; Brothers, Isaac, Ruben, Garfield, and Harrison as well as Sisters, Lucy, Mary Evelyn, and Rosie. Visitation was held from the United Church in Raleigh from where the funeral service was held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, December 30th, 2017 with Rev. Gus Pendleton officiating. Interment followed. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Kerry M. Fillatre’s Funeral Home, St. Anthony and Roddickton, Lee Nippard Funeral Director.
