Wayne Thomas Everts, 62, of Cameron passed away Monday, April 18, 2022 at Womack Army Medical Center.

Wayne was born July 11, 1959 in Saratoga Springs, NY to the late Roy K. Everts and Barbara L. Whipple. He was also preceded in death by his step-father, Lewis Whipple.

Wayne served his country and community through his years of service in the military and N.C. Forestry Service. He was a loving husband, father, brother, son, and uncle but his greatest joy was being Grampy to his little princess.

Wayne fought cancer with strength and dignity, that flowed from his faith in his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

In the days before his death, he was able to do some of his favorite things. He went to Disney World and attended an ECU Pirates baseball game at UCF. Wayne lived life to the fullest, even on the hard days.
