Mar 31, 1943 – Jan 9, 2020 Longtime Los Altos resident Sidney (Sid) John Everett, age 76, passed away on January 9, 2020 after a five year battle with Lewy body dementia. He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Becky Everett, and his three children (daughter Jennifer (Sean) De Lapp, son Greg (Aimee) Everett, granddaughter Jade Anaya, and daughter Annemarie Everett). Sid was born in Plainfield, New Jersey to Sidney Ellis Everett and Ann Sangiuliano. He spent his early childhood in Cranford, New Jersey and Sunbury, Pennsylvania before his family relocated to Detroit, Michigan. There he attended Cass Technical High School and graduated in 1961. Sid inherited a fascination with aviation history from his father, who was the superintendent of aircraft maintenance for the General Motors air fleet. Sid grew up listening to stories about the barnstormers of the 1920s and learned about the beginnings of air mail and commercial aviation from pilots and mechanics who were part of it all. This exposure strongly influenced his early educational and professional choices.
