Everett Allen Combs, born June 18, 1958 in Zion, IL to Edward Combs and Virginia May Grubbs (Phil). Everett passed away on February 14, 2022, at Condell Medical Center. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends. He loved the Chicago Bears and Cubs, fishing and camping. He went to Gateway college in WI to become a mechanic. He worked on cars for many years and fixed a lot of family and friends cars for free because that was the kind of guy he was; he always thought of others. He was also employed at Ozite Corporation for many years. In his older years he was stubborn and would tell you what was on his mind, and then some.
