Everett Eugene Dahme was born in Aberdeen on February 7, 1938, the third son of Ernest and Olga (Brick) Dahme. Everett (affectionately known as “Smiley”) attended Lincoln Elementary and Simmons Jr. High schools and graduated from Aberdeen Central High School in 1956.
He served in the United States Army Reserves and was employed with Sam’s TV, Brick’s TV and Appliance, and the Milwaukee Railroad over the years.
Everett enjoyed sports and was an excellent baseball player. He was a member of the 1952, 1953, and 1954 state champions Aberdeen Smitty’s baseball teams.
“Smiley” was a good and loyal buddy who enjoyed his many friends, as they did him. He always was well-liked and was a resident of Bicentennial Apartments in Aberdeen since 2006. Aberdeen was his lifelong home. It will miss him.
Grateful for having shared Everett’s life is his oldest brother, Orval Dahme of Bloomington, Illinois.
Everett was preceded in death by his parents, and his brother Lyle Dahme.
