Grandpa Everett is one of the last of the greats.. Some of you guys might remember during covid when he came out to the house and stayed during covid.. he rebuilt the swamp cooler, rebuilt and machined the upper a arms for my kids sxs..

This guy can literally build anything with a drill press and a hammer..

It’s his 90th b day coming up here on the quick. He wanted 2 things..

One He wanted to bring his hot rod to lake Havasu to put it on the street on a Thursday..
The second is for the first time ever he wanted a party at his house with the family..

I can get the car there and the family is taking care of the party.

It would mean a lot if a few rdp members came down to the office this Thursday and had a beer and said hello. If ya like the hot rod shake his hand and say nice job. He literally built this thing in his garage starting at the ripe young age of 85.. 😳

Love the hot rod. If there was a way I could get there from Ohio, I'd be there to check it out.

Happy birthday Grandpa.

I had a great time shootin the shit with him a couple years ago when he was down with your mom.

Such a cool dude, Crazy to imagine he is 90, seems more like he is in his 70s

Thank you everyone! They don't make men like my grandfather anymore. He's been such a huge influence in my life. He's having such a good time out here and he is super excited about tonight. He took the car to see his brother yesterday who lives in Donkey Acres. Turns out his brother isn't doing so great and has lost a lot of weight. His daughters are rotating spending a week at a time with him right now. Grandpa got to take his brother on a quick ride in the car and I think it made both of their days.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the office tonight:)

Good morning Dave,
Thanks for the beers and it was great to talk with you, Stacey and grandpa Everettt.
He is sharp as a tack for 90 and the 31 is a testament to that.
We owe so much to that older generation, thanks again for allowing us to spend time with him.
Bob and Liz
