Theodore Everitt, Jr.




Theodore T. Everitt Jr Babylon, NY- Ted Everitt passed away on January 7th , just shy of his 94th birthday. He was born January 16,1929 to Theodore and Eleanor Field Everitt in Orange, NJ. His family moved to Bellport, NY where he spent most of his childhood. After graduating from Salisbury School, he began his career in the mailroom of NBC where he met his wife Doris Wilhelm. They were married on August 23,1952. Ted served in the Army during the Korean War and was stationed at Fort Hood in Texas. After his service, it was back to NYC and NBC. A year after the birth of their first child, they moved to Babylon where they raised their three children. Ted loved to be on the water and had many successful years sailing on the Great South Bay. At NBC Ted worked his way up the ladder to the Film Coordination Department. After forty years at NBC he enjoyed many happy years of retirement. Despite losing his wife Doris in 2008 he continued living in his home listening to jazz, enjoying grandchildren, hobbies and his faithful kitty Puffy. In 2019 he moved into The Babylon Beach House overlooking The Great South Bay. We will be forever grateful to the Beach House for the wonderful care they took of Dad, for the friendships and good times shared by all. He loved playing Bingo, joking with Staff and working on his puzzles. They became part of our family.


Ted was predeceased by his wife Doris, brother John Everitt and son-in-law Richard Kenison. He is survived by his three children, Susan Lapierre and her husband Lee, Robin Kenison and Ted Everitt III and his wife Kristina. He is also survived by five grandchildren, Ben Coulthard, Sarah (Everitt) Brand, Emma Lapierre, Matthew Kenison and Bryan Everitt. He was a wonderful father and grandfather who had a great sense of humor and will be missed by many. A graveside service will be held at a later date. Donations in his memory may be made to The Wounded Warrior Project or to The Babylon Beach House.
