The American flag was at half staff Wednesday in memory of Everette.
Inside the Golden Gate Highway and Transportation District building in San Rafael, his co-works took comfort talking about Everette.
"When I came in this morning to pick up my assignment, I had a hard time, I really had to pick up the pieces and go out and pull my run, I' m still choked up about it, but it was tough," co-worker Thomas Thomas said.
Everette had worked as a Golden Gate Transit bus driver for 17 years. He lived alone in an apartment complex in San Leandro.
His co-workers remember him as a hard worker and fun to be with.
"To me he was an inspiration in my life because he always had kind words to say and to everybody else," co-worker Robert Dorsey said.
Grief counseling is being offered to bus drivers and other employees.
"It's always in the back of your mind; it can happen anywhere, it can happen walking down the street, it's one of those things, it's what you deal with," Thomas said.
Everette was a church going man; in fact he was a deacon at Acts Full Gospel in Oakland. The other shooting victim, /*Debbie Ross*/, also attended this church.
Investigators will not discuss the nature of the relationship between Everette and Ross, but her sister says this was not a love triangle.
Everrette had gotten off work at 5:30 p.m. and gave Ross a ride to work.
The District will plan a memorial for Everrette once his family has been contacted.
