Everett Jude Freeman (b. June 24, 2013) was called from his new adventure in Seguin Ontario to his forever adventure beyond the stars on August 12, 2022 at the age of just 9 years old.
He will be incredibly missed and treasured by his proud parents Korey and Amberley Freeman, and by his sister Piper and brother Sage, to whom he was an amazing big brother and best friend. He leaves a giant hole in the hearts of his grandparents Wayne and Joanne Freeman and Cliff and Brenda Martin, his great grandparents Agnes Kraemer and Earl and Lena Martin, and his beloved cousins, aunts and uncles, who all loved him so dearly.
Everett lived his short life on earth to the max. He loved life, and he lived it well. While most saw him as a quiet, sweet boy, to those who had the honour of knowing him well he was phenomenally extra-ordinary. He was gifted with an incredibly brilliant mind, and a mouth that could chatter one million words an hour. He was a whiz with numbers. He loved sports. He had the memory of an elephant. He loved school, Rubik’s cubes, and games. He was gentle, patient, humble, and kind. He had the brightest smile and most delightful giggle. We thank God for the gift of nine incredible years, and long to join Everett in his new home.
Visitation will be held at Bayside Family Church (4 Parry Sound Drive, Parry Sound) on Thursday, August 18th, 2022 from 2:00 – 4:00 P.M. and 6:00 – 8:00 P.M.
The Funeral Service will be held at Bayside Family Church (4 Parry Sound Dr, Parry Sound) on Friday, August 19th, 2022 at 2:00 P.M. The Funeral will be livestreamed at service time through youtube https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=harvest+church+parry+sound

Everett was a beautiful little boy. I remember his gentleness and smile when we’d get together at Northside for our little play group. It absolutely breaks my heart knowing the pain and sorrow your family is going through. We will continue to pray for comfort and peace as you navigate life without your sweet Everett. We are so sorry for your loss and wish we could be there to give you a hug and let you know how much we care. Love, the Barfoot family ❤️-Mark & Melissa Barfoot
Our family is so big we don’t see each other much anymore, but we attended the same reunions, and although we don’t know each other well we are still family and I want to express my condolences to you and everyone mourning the loss of Everett. He sounds like a wonderful boy. Such a difficult reminder to know that these precious little ones are only placed in our care for as long as God needs us, but they are ultimately His. My prayers are with you and your family and I pray the memories you have will help carry you through these difficult times and that your strength in God will carry you through the adjustment to a new normal. I couldn’t help but smile as I thought of my grandma Esther Bauman, greeting him - a little reunion of their own. Thinking and praying for you all.-Jenn (Weber) Krulicki

With deepest sympathy.-Darcy, Ginette, Tristan & Shaylynn Bain
