Everett Martin Rest in Peace

One of the folks I enjoyed working with at the NE Coalition of Neighborhoods this last year, Everett Martin, passed away July 12.  He was a community activist and Rider Advocate on the Tri-Met system.  Everett took me on a tour of his work on day, and I admired his rapport with young and old on the streets.  He was the union steward at NECN, and a man with integrity.  He died suddenly of cancer.  He will be missed.  His young son, Everett Jr, was a joy to play with when he came over for dinner last year.  Rest in Peace.
