Everett Louis was born on August 20, 1946 to the union of Katherine Ponder and Buster Johnson in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. He was the third of six children, and the eldest son.
Everett received his early education at Douglas Elementary graduated from College High School. After graduation, he entered the United States Navy, where he served 3 years and was honorably discharged.
Everett moved to Wynnewood, OK, where he made a career of highway construction operating heavy equipment with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation. He also built the first of 2 homes there.
Everett returned to Bartlesville after retiring to care for his mother Katherine. After her death, Everett identified a need among the senior community and found ways to meet those needs with his time and service. At the time, there was a senior program that was nearly defunct. Everett decided to breathe life back into the West Side for the increasing senior population. He and Charlesetta partnered with several other members of the community and revamped it with the participation of the Nutrition Program. They created outings to give seniors social opportunities and started activities like Bingo and A Day In the Park. The seniors went to places such as Langston University Homecoming, MLK Parades in Tulsa with the use of a bus that Everett was instrumental in acquiring. Everett also served by doing odd jobs in people's homes who could not do for themselves.
Everett quietly departed this life on Monday, September 16, 2019. He was preceded in death by both parents and sibling Francis Ishem.
He leaves to cherish his memory Charlesetta Johnson, sisters Janet Taylor, Barbara Ann Robinson, Kathy Robinson (Peebles), brother Thomas Lee (TL) Robinson, son Brandon Thompson, granddaughters Aiden Thompson and Alayjah Thompson, and a host of other relatives, loved ones and friends.
