Troy - Robert W. Everts, 68, passed away suddenly at his home on Wednesday, March 17, 2021.
Born in High Point, NC in 1952, Robert was the son of the late William Carl Everts and Patricia deForrest Sweetman Everts. He grew up in New Berlin, NY and later moved to the Niagara Falls area before finding his home in Troy, NY for the last 20 years.

Most recently employed as a professional driver, Robert happily spent much of his career in sales prior to his retirement.
An avid photographer, Robert captured life through a lens while he enjoyed time with his friends and family. As a lifelong motorcycle enthusiast, dog lover, and hiker he could always be found enjoying the outdoors on a new adventure.
