Everett graduated from Lincoln Sr High School and attended St. Louis University from which he received a baseball scholarship.

On November 17, 2012, Everett was joined in holy matrimony to Debra Brownlee and from that union was born their son, Everett Paul Davis.

    Daddy Joone (as you told me it's spelled) aka Ahata G'Ra Afrika, I miss you daddy. My Pluto is in your Libra. So I know your energy still with me. You are a rare breed. You will be truly missed. You fathered two girls of your first wife who wasn't yours when you were only 25 years old. You spent 43 years trying your best to save us daddy. You did. I am an Empress in African countries even India because of you. God, the ancestors and Orishas are well pleased with you. I wouldn't know I am a Yoruba and Asante royal bloodline if it wasn't for you pointing me to Iyanla Vanzant, Oprah Winfrey, my paternal blood cousin Dick Gregory, who named me Ayanna (with his daughter) and I got Asada (strong lioness) from you. I wouldn't know my cousin/Baba Dr. Molefi Kete Asante, Panther Prince Dr. Kaba "Hiawatha" Kamane and many more scholars if it wasn't for you. I wouldn't be so Afrocentric if it wasn't for you and Mr. Willard Mitchom keep us children in our studies, like Malcolm X or my paternal cousin, Dr. Maya Angelou's work. I will speak and write to make millions like I told you. I will produce a movie on you, UK actor Nicholas Pinnock ("For Life") will portray you like I told you and others. I got you daddy. Akilah, Lil Everett and the world will know how great of a father you are via a movie. Love, Empress Faatiyah-Ayanna Asada Asante Afrika Mubarak Salman Sampson

    To the Love of my life. My life will never be the same since the Lord called you home. I treasure the time we spent together and the beautiful son God blessed me to conceive with your seed. Truly the best gift GOD granted your son and I was making sure you were right with Him before calling you home. Thank You Jesus. 🙌🏾🙏🏾 I love you Bay and I will make sure Lil Everett grows into a man of God that we both wanted. I will always love you. Debra (wife)

    Thank you Uncle June for being a positive influence in my life. You were always present and words can't express how much that meant to me. You had a beautiful contagious smile. I can still hear your words of wisdom in my ear. You spent so much time with us as kids, inspiring us to be great and eat right. I felt loved! Thank you for seeing my dad's heart and loving him unconditionally. You will never be replaced nor forgotten. I love you Uncle June. Your niece, Teka
