Carleton S. ("Pete") Everett Carleton S. ("Pete") Everett passed away on Sunday, June 9 at the Hilton Head Hospital. He was four days short of 82 years old. Mr. Everett was the son of Helen and Carleton Everett. He was born in Scarsdale, NY and studied engineering and operations research at Cornell University. He taught engineering and business courses at Broome Community College (Binghamton, NY) and Des Moines Area Community College. His passions were tennis, jogging, and computers. And he never passed up the chance to work the daily crossword puzzle. He played tennis at Des Moines Golf & Country Club and South Beach Racquet Club in Hilton Head. Pete was an avid reader and was always intellectually curious. His children will miss his parenting style of instructing without lecturing, guiding without dictating, and encouraging without demanding. His friends will miss his patience, his willingness to teach, and his quick wit. They all will miss his love of ice cream, peanut butter, and Maker's Mark. He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Sharon; two sons, Doug (Char) of Denver, CO and Dave (Nora) of Des Moines, IA; three stepchildren, Maggie Maxwell of Denver, CO, Kate Hill (Doran) of West Des Moines, IA, and Michael Polosky (Lori) of Dallas, TX; brother Bob Everett (Mary) of Scarsdale, NY; and nine grandchildren. A memorial service will be held at the Island Funeral Home and Crematory, 4 Cardinal Road, on Saturday, June 22, at 3:00 pm with a reception to follow. Memorial contributions may be made to the Coastal Discovery Museum or the Hilton Head Island Computer Club. www.theislandfuneralhome.com
