William "Billy" Louis Martin Everson, age 58 of Viroqua, died Wednesday, February 19, 2020, at the Bland Bekkedal Center for Hospice Care in Viroqua. He was born October 14, 1961, to Betty (Larson) and Martin Everson.
Billy loved and always had time for his family and friends. Just like his mom got him into golfing he did his best to get his children hooked, with his favorite spots being Viroqua Hills, Serendipity and Snowflake.
Billy was an avid photographer, often focusing on capturing a moment, stopping by the side of the road for perfect sunsets and cloud formations. His favorite subjects included his family, and especially grandchildren. He took his camera everywhere.
Billy worked hard every day until he no longer could. He had a lot of different jobs like groundskeeping, setting monuments, milk truck driving, and much more. He often said that in another life he would've been a pilot.
Billy was a member of Eagles Aerie #2707. He loved to have fun; playing pool, singing karaoke, and telling stories. He was a natural comedian, and his friends may know him as Ed, Willis, Billerbob, and many other nicknames. God bless our memories of Billy.
William is survived by his children, Stuart (Katy) Everson, Logan (Robert Kowalewski) Everson, Raina Everson and Kori Everson; his grandchildren, Stella, Hank, Seela and Selma; his mother, Betty Everson; his sister, Shawna (Mike) Nevil; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father, Martin; his grandparents; and his best friend, Cory Herried.
