Everett Teves passed away in his Pleasanton home of forty-nine years after a courageous battle against acute myeloid leukemia. He is now at peace. To meet Everett was to be in the presence of an intelligent, loving, and kind human being.
Everett was born in Fall River, Massachusetts and drove across country with his family at the age of fourteen to make a life in California and in the Bay Area. Everett was a quiet, yet fierce patriot who served his country in the U.S. Marines during the Korean War, achieving the rank of Staff Sergeant. Everett found his next profession at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and after thirtythree years, retired as a Senior Class II Machinist.
Everett is survived by his devoted wife, Ilda Teves. This year they would have celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. Everett is also survived by his two adoring daughters Christina Teves (Bertha) and Michelle VerKuilen (Steve) and two grandchildren, Maxwell and Trenton. Everett considered his grandsons the ‘apple of his eye’. The surviving family would like to express their gratitude to Dr. Kavitha Raj and the staff at Valley Medical Oncology Center. They are also appreciative of the excellent, professional work of the Nuclear Care Partners. Much love goes out to an additional, exceptional caregiver, Caitlin, who gave so much of herself to ensure that Everett was comfortable at all times.
Friends and family are invited to attend a visitation and vigil at Graham-Hitch Mortuary on Sunday, July 8th. Visitation at 4 pm; vigil at 5 pm. Address: 4167 First Street, Pleasanton. A funeral mass will take place on Monday, July 9th at 10:30 am - St. Augustine's Church, 3999 Bernal Ave, Pleasanton.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations in his memory to Leukemia Research Foundation or a charity of your choice.
