John Merrill Everingham

September 18, 1949 ~ April 14, 2018 (age 68)
On Saturday, April 14, 2018, John Merrill Everingham, passed away in his home at the age of 68, after a 20-year battle with prostate cancer.

John was born on September 18, 1949 in Boise, ID to Gladys Martha and John Boyd Everingham. John graduated with a Ph.D. in Systems Ecology from UC Davis. He made significant contributions to the development of electrical infrastructure in Hawaii and spent 10 years living there before returning to Boise, ID in 1994. He loved nature and especially the Hawaiian Islands, but most of all he loved being a dad.  He is survived by his three children, John Bayard, Caryn Elizabeth, and Kathleen Simonne Everingham, and his brother Robert Arthur Everingham.

His life, laughter, and spirit of adventure will continue to live on somewhere over the rainbow.

A graveside service will be held on Saturday, May 5, at 11:00 a.m. at Morris Hill Cemetery, 317 N. Latah St., Boise, ID 83706.
