Augustus “Tom” Everlen, age 78, joined his loving wife, Joanne, in heaven on October 2, 2021. He resided at the Veteran’s Home in Chippewa Falls. He was born January 3, 1943 in Stonington IL to William “Presley” and Helen (Smith) Everlen. He married Joanne Rivers on June 17, 1989. He served in the Air Force during the Vietnam War and transferred to the Air National Guard where he served for many years. Tom worked as an interstate trucker and briefly operated the “Bear’s Den” in Bloomer. He enjoyed meeting and talking with new people, telling stories and joking around. He had a great sense of humor and enjoyed giving his daughters a hard time, lovingly referring to them as “His Louse”, “His Favorite” and “His Baby”!
He is survived by his daughters: Lisa (Chris Polston) Mattson, Mollie (Scott) Haag and Talena Peterson; sisters: Kathy Fecho and Kay Durbin; grandchildren: Nicholas, McKenna, Chase, Ryan, Erin and Brad; 3 great-grandchildren.
It was Tom’s wish that there would be no service. Olson Funeral Home in Bloomer is assisting the family. Online Condolences may be expressed at olsonfunerealhomebloomer.com
