Willie Martin Everheart, Jr., (Willie Martin Murry), son of the late Ida G. and Robert March; and the late Willie M. Everheart, Sr., was born on November 26, 1961. Willie matriculated in the Dothan City School System.
During his childhood, Willie and his siblings grew up in the Church of God in Christ alongside their mother. Willie loved the Lord and was dedicated to helping others along the journey of his life. He accepted the Lord on September 11, 2021. His life's beginnings seemed to be a long perilous journey, and with this decision he now gained more meaning and understanding about life. His demeanor was anything but quiet. He had a strong work ethic and a sense of humor that was evident to all. It was obvious that he was cut from the finest cloth.
25 years ago, Willie met Velma, which was more than just a meeting of the minds. Velma seemed to help bring out the best in him. The relationship between Velma and Willie would lead him to begin setting real life goals. Because of her, he was no longer unsure about life decisions. His new motto was "To Love and to Live".
We are saddened by our loss and no words can express how much we will miss Jr. We lost our MVP; while we were trying to grow up, he made sure we were alright and okay. He gave each of us a tool in life to survive, each tool had a different purpose and meaning. We are honored, not just to share the same bloodline, but also to know "we are our brother's keeper".
He was preceded in death by his parents: Ida G. March and Willie M. Everheart, Sr.
He leaves to cherish his memory, his children: DeMale Everheart, Sherry Everheart, Isaiah Everheart, and Tamar Danielle Collins; step-son: Kevin Gaskin; grandsons: Isaiah Everheart, Jr. and Khaza Amir Collins; siblings: Donald (Belinda) Everheart, Priscilla (Bruce) Rollins, Orinthians March, and Labalon (Vicky) March; a special aunt: Frances Burton; and niece: Deanna Gaskin; along with many family members and friends.
