Harry Towner Everingham

Harry Towner Everingham, 96, of Scottsdale, AZ, passed away May 1, 2005. He was born Aug. 14, 1908 in Memphis, TN to William Kirby and Ida Pauline, nee Towner, Everingham. He attended Christian Brothers College in Memphis and Northwestern University in Chicago. In 1934, he married Margaret Sophia Johnson, who preceded him in death in 1999. He is survived by his three children, Martha Meister (George) of California, Barbara Miller (Larry) of Illinois and Kirby Everingham (Kathryn) of Scottsdale, AZ. He loved his 10 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. Harry began his career as a writer and producer for a radio show. He was a film producer and speaker for the Employers Association in Chicago. He served as public relations director of a steel company. He began editing a publication in 1942, ''Forging Ahead'', in Harvey, IL. He edited and published ''The Fact Finder'' and ''Free Enterprise'' (later ''The American Patriot'') first in Chicago and then in Arizona, for over 55 years. His love of this country and the desire to save our basic foundations of our American Way of Life: our faith in God, our productive Free Enterprise System, and our U.S. Constitution, motivated him to write for many years. Harry was National President and trustee of ''We The People, United'' from 1955 until his death. He was Vice President of the Greater Chicago Churchmen; founder of the Publicity Club of Chicago in 1942. He founded the Arizona Breakfast Club in 1969. He edited and published two books, ''U.S.A. - Beyond the Crossroads'' and ''The Best Kept Secrets of Our Enemy Within.'' A Memorial Service is planned for 10 a.m. on June 25, 2005, at Messinger Mortuary, 7601 E. Indian School Rd. in Scottsdale. Donations, in lieu of flowers, may be sent to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, 1250 Fourth Street, Santa Monica, CA 90401.
