Diamond Bar, CA - July 6, 2020) We are deeply saddened by the news that longtime resident, former council member and mayor, Ron Everett has passed away.
Mr. Everett was first appointed to serve on the Diamond Bar City Council in February 2007 to fill the seat left vacant by the passing of Councilman Bob Zirbes and in December 2008, was selected to serve as Mayor. He also spent a few years on the City’s Planning Commission.
During his time on the Council, Mr. Everett was always a strong advocate for education. He was a member of many boards and commissions, including the executive board of the Walnut Valley Educational Foundation, Walnut Valley Unified School District Personnel Commission for 25 years, the Citizens Oversight Committee for the Mount San Antonio College $221-million construction bond issue, and was the City’s liaison to the Pomona Unified School District and Diamond Bar Library.
He was born and raised in Burbank, California and was a graduate of UCLA with a degree in Economics. Mr. Everett retired from the IBM Corporation after 30 years of marketing, management, executive and industry education, and client responsibilities for aerospace, manufacturing, and distribution companies, as well as the City of Los Angeles. Mr. Everett and his wife Kay first moved to Diamond Bar in 1977, where they raised their five children.
His dedication and love for his community will truly be missed. We send our deepest condolences to his wife Kay and the Everett family.
The Diamond Bar City Council meeting of July 7, 2020 will be adjourned in his memory.
