Everett Anton, son of Katherine (Ebertz) and Everett Rasmussen Sr. was born on April 23, 1965 in Devils Lake ND. He grew up and was educated in the Crary area, graduating from Crary High School with the class of 1983. Everett was united in marriage to Roberta “Bobbi” Felch on December 23, 1988 at the Crary Lutheran Church. They established their home on the family farm where Everett had helped his father and brother farm for many years and would make the farm his life-long home. Everett worked as a custom combiner, harvesting from Texas to the Canadian Border. He was one of the supervisors at Nordick Fiberglass for over 10 years, worked for area farmers and at the time of his death had been employed in Security at the Spirit Lake Casino and Resort. Everett’s passion was the farm and the outdoors. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, had an unbelievable self-taught talent with computers, electronics, gadgets; fixing, tweeking, understanding the mechanics of them. If you visited with Everett for any length of time, you knew his politics and a very interesting conversation would ensue. But Everett’s heart belonged to his family whom he loved, was so very proud of and especially loved the role of “grandpa”. Everett will be so very missed by his precious family which includes his wife Bobbi; daughter Michelle and her husband Nicholas Breazile and their children Keagen and Huxley of Lakota ND; siblings Marie (Luther) Koapke, St. Thomas ND, Margo (Doyle) Aas, Grafton ND, Valerie Rogers Calico Rock AR, Mark Rasmussen also of Grafton, Kyle (Brad) Osowski also of St. Thomas and Carl Rasmussen, Grand Forks ND; parents-in-law Herb and Nettie Felch, Devils Lake; in-laws Deb Williams, Fargo ND, Linda (Russ) Berstler, Frazee MN and Gordie (Doreen) Felch also Fargo; many cousins, nieces, nephews and their families. He was preceded in death by his parents, son Steve, brothers-in-law Kelly Rogers and Curt Williams.
