Everette Morgan was a good man. l've known him for a little over four years through our mutual affiliation with the Leadership Lambda Toastmasters Club (LLTM), and in that time l have come to know him well, mainly because he seemed to have no facades other than the one that was on display for all to see.

l can't recall how Everette came to be in our club. He did not fit the typical LLTM profile - not a member of First Unitarian Church (the church that hosts the club), did not find it convenient to make the meetings because he lived or worked nearby (he traversed and transferred his way via public transportation to make the meetings), and he wasn't gay (which is notable because LLTM was the first sanctified gay club ever in Toastmasters International;) He became a loyal member of the club by way of the inexplicable nature of the how events happen, and he came with some Toastmasters experience, and in short order he was everything you want in a club member.

Thinking back, l remember several of his speeches. His Icebreaker was boffo, then came the series of self-disclosure presentations which allowed everybody to get to know him - the empathy with Charlie Brown, the camaraderie with MAD magazine, the passion for the escape professional wrestling brings, the campaign speech for Bernie Sanders, the masterful job of being the press secretary taking questions over a controversial situation, "pants on the ground", MLK and other civil rights issues. One thing you could count on was Everette being prepared and passionate when he gave a speech.

And he showed up, which is paramount, especially as president of the club, a role he play with vigor and vitality. l was his VP of Membership during his term and we signed up double digits the year he held the office. Everette was superlative at "closing the deal" and getting people to join the club.

Everette's transition to the next plane has me downcast. His potential as confident leader and a voice-giver to a disenfranchised sector of society was obvious. And he had a good woman's love to assist him along any endeavor. Abbie, there are many who love you and Everette and who are praying for you now and forever.

Digging through my digital files to find a photo or something special to post, l found this video recording of Everette winning a dance contest at a District 50 afterparty. It speaks to Everette's zest for life and competition.

God bless Everette, his family and friends and all who hold him dear.

I've known Everette since 1990. We attended West Texas A&M University together and became really great friends. We had a lot of wonderful times together and I will miss him dearly. He had a kind heart and a wonderful laugh. Rest In Peace my friend.
