Everette B. Hair, 79, of Fairfield, went joyfully to meet his Lord on Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014, at Fairfield Nursing and Rehab Center.
He was born in 1934 in Columbia, S.C., joined the Air Force at 18 and served in Korea, returning four years later to marry and raise a family. His career as a purchasing agent with Colite Industries sent him all over the country, meeting many interesting people such as Bear Bryant and Ted Turner. Twenty-four years later he met a new love and took on raising a new family. They moved to Fairfield in 1983 where he continued his civil service career as the mainframe programmer with the 349th Reserve Wing, retiring in 1996.
Everette’s main interests were the Lord, his family and finding a good bargain.
He leaves behind his loving and beloved wife, Linda; two sons, Rhett (Melody) Hair of Winnesboro, S.C., and Ryan (Debra) Hair of Lexington, S.C.; three daughters, Robin Blair of Ridgeway, S.C., Cathy (Patrick) Oliver of Modesto and Meredith (James) Bonson of Abilene, Texas; grandsons, Rhett Hair, A.J. Martinez, Alex Martinez and Ian Bonson; granddaughters, Crystal Hair, Taylor Martinez, Emily Bonson and Allison Hair; three great-grandchildren; and one sister, Patti (David) Davis of Gaston, S.C.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Everette and Dorothy Hair of Columbia, S.C.; a brother, Ronald Hair of Columbia, S.C.; a sister, Sarah Stanfield of Lexington, S.C.; and grandson, Joshua Blair of Winnesboro, S.C.
Interment will be at 2 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014, at Sacramento Valley National Cemetery, 5810 Midway Road, Dixon. An informal gathering for family and friends will be at 5:30 p.m. that evening in the Fairfield Assembly of God Fireside Room, 2207 Union Ave.
