Remembering Sloan Everett, 2017 Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce Board of Director

Our hearts go out to the entire Everett family. A memorial service will take place on Saturday, March 11th at First Baptist Church in Breckenridge at 2 pm. The family of Sloan Everett requests that any donations be made to the building fund of First Baptist Church in Breckenridge.

“Be encouraged by their passing and legacy. Instead of crying, live an inspired, spiritual and happy life like they did when they were here. Live each day with encouragement knowing that they are proud and smiling down on you from Heaven” ~ Matt Fraser

If you knew Sloan, you would know that is exactly what he would want you to do.

“There’s no shortage of people in Breckenridge whose lives have been impacted by Sloan Everett. He was a youth pastor at First Baptist Church in Breckenridge. He served on the Hospital Board and the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. He was also a local business owner. Although he’s gone, members of the community say that his memory will live on.”
