Obituary for William B. Everhart Sr.

William B. Everhart� born November 11, 1927, peacefully passed away June 29, 2015 after a valiant month-long endeavor to overcome a stroke and its complications. He was surrounded by his family of warriors and sentries until his final moments at Hospice of Cincinnati, Blue Ash. He is survived by his children, Sally Proctor (Tom), Cathy Proctor (Doug), Amy Everhart, Nancy Everhart Safran and William Everhart, Jr. (Robin), and loving companion, Penny Hahn. He also leaves ten grandchildren; Patrick Baker, Jaclyn Baker, Molly Sullivan, Andy Sullivan, Carden Safran, Claire Safran, Cassidy Everhart, Maya Everhart, Reilly Everhart and Abby Doyle, and three great grandchildren, along with step-children Marjorie Davis, Katy Fink, and Erick Fink. Bill grew up on a farm just outside Dayton, Ohio before attending Miami University and was a brother of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. He joined the Army in 1950, serving at Camp Atterbury as a Corporal in the 308th Military Group. He married Karee (Kay) Meade and together they started their family in Springfield, Ohio before moving and settling in Terrace Park, Ohio in 1966. Besides his family, perhaps his greatest legacy was the generation of young women he coached from the introduction of SAY soccer in Cincinnati in 1969 until his final year coaching the Mariemont High School EHL champions in 1979. His teams were always top tier, no matter how many times his roster was scrambled. He truly loved his soccer girls and cherished a reunion of his players just several years ago. Before travel teams were commonplace, Bill was hauling his team in a Winnebago to Canada, Maryland and New Jersey for tournaments. A former player wrote, he � [was] a consistent leader throughout a critical time in lives of many girls�responsible for a small army of strong women who didn�t think twice about diving into the sloppiest mud in freezing temperatures to contribute to a team effort.� He was a Renaissance man of many talents � full of life, love, and practical jokes, he excelled in tennis, was a formidable player in bridge, loved to play the ponies, could do crossword puzzles in his sleep and was a true jazz aficionado. A stock broker by trade, he had a keen mind, a mischievous sense of humor, a twinkle in his bright blue eyes and a great love of both people and nature. He grew up hunting squirrels, raising prize-winning rabbits and fishing, and never tired in his delight in spotting morel mushrooms, birds and wildflowers as he hiked. In his later years, he travelled with Penny to Paris, all throughout Italy and finally to his bucket list trip at the Grand Canyon, where he met up with multi-generations of family to celebrate his 87th birthday. Residing on the banks of the Little Miami River in Morrow, Ohio, he and Penny kept busy with their gardens, birds and love for dining out. He was cremated at Craver-Riggs Funeral home and the family will plan a celebration of his life at a later date to be announced. He was a small giant of a man who touched and will be missed by so many. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Hospice of Cincinnati Blue Ash or the Cincinnati Nature Center.
