Everett Massengill, ten out of ten people eventually die, but only one out of 700,000 get struck by lightning. Which is fitting, because if you ask anyone lucky enough to meet him, Everett Massengill was easily one in a million.
Everett Massengill died just before 5 p.m. Friday July 6, 2018, at his home in Kingston. Gifted with true charisma and an unyielding work ethic, he combined both working as a telephone repairman for BellSouth for 37 years and serving as a member of the Roane County School Board for 28 consecutive years. Most notably, as chairman Everett spearheaded the building and development of Midway Middle School. Known for having a deep pride and compassion for everyone around him, he was a revered figure within the community and will be more than missed. Everett was a member of Luminary United Methodist Church, a U.S. Army veteran and a member of Union Lodge 38 F&AM in Kingston. He was preceded in death by parents, Melvin Massengill and Daisy Russell Massengill; and sisters, Carolyn Daugherty and Novella Armes and brother-in-law Randall Armes.
He is survived by wife, Nancy Strange Massengill, Kingston; daughter, Terri Comer (Roy), Green Cove Springs, Fla.; son, Eric Massengill (Chrissy), Kingston; grandchildren, Zane Comer (Lulu), New York, N.Y., Grayson Comer, Green Cove Springs, Fla., and Josie Massengill, Ville Massengill and Noah Halliburton, all of Kingston; siblings, Ralph Massengill (Robin), Glen Massengill (JoAnne), Gary Massengill (Gail) and Geraldine Mehlhorn (Jerry); sister-in-law, Margaret Strange Morgan; and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
The family received friends from 5 to 9 p.m. Monday, July 9, at Midway Middle School.
