Everett Eugene Thomas was born Thursday January 27, 1939 in Calvert County, Maryland to the late Ruth Taylor Thomas and William Thomas, the sixth eldest of 17 sisters and brothers. He departed this life Tuesday September 11, 2012 after a lengthy illness.

Everett attended Calvert County Public Schools. He left Calvert County at age 16, but faithfully returned to visit his family's home on Skinners Turn Road.

Everett loved to sit in the kitchen and observe his mother prepare the family meals, during which time he would fall asleep, thus inheriting the nickname "RIP."

Everett worked for the Washington Suburban Sanitation Commission for approximately 28 years, eventually retiring as a master machinist. He held his supervisor, Milton Green, in great respect, and maintained long lasting friendships with his friends, Emery, Eli, Pete, Paul, "Cowboy," the late Jimmie and Madison, along with a host of other friends.

Rip possessed many gifts, but was particularly skilled in the kitchen and on the backyard grill. His specialties -- collards, kale, crab cakes, potato salad, Spanish corn, barbecue ribs, shrimp kebobs, sweet potatoes, chicken and dumplings - were loved by all who were fortunate to taste them. During his illness, Rip would frequently leave his church pew to join the kitchen ministry to serve after worship services.

Rip enjoyed the smooth sounds of his favorite musical artist, Lou Rawls, and adored Whitney Houston. Whenever Rip and Mary traveled, the music of "Sweet Lou" was sure to accompany them.

Though soft-spoken, Rip was respected and admired by all. His sense of flair was expressed through his extensive wardrobe, his stylish stride and his many caps.

In addition, his home reflected his love of gardening and building. He loved to watch football and could be found each Sunday afternoon rooting on his beloved Washington Redskins. During the weekdays it was Sanford and Son. After he purchased his boat "The Miss Mary," Rip could be found early in the morning on the Chesapeake Bay, returning home with a sizable catch of the best fish.

At his core, Rip was a family man, and he adored his wife, Mary, as well as their daughter, Lisa, and their grandchildren, Tamara, Tiara, John and Joshua. He especially cherished his sisters Cynthia and Beatrice, his brother-in-law Sidney and was called "favorite brother-in-law" by Pamelia. He was fondly called "Pop Rip", Daddy Rip, and Grand-daddy.

In all that he did and in all that he was, Everett Eugene Thomas gave 100 percent of himself. In the words of his favorite singer, Rip was a natural man who has left to mourn his lovely wife Mary, daughter Lisa, grandchildren, Tamara, Tiara, John, and Joshua; siblings Vernice Custard, Mary Green, Corrine, Reed, Beatrice (Author) Riggs, Valeria Mason, Cynthia (Sidney) Jones, William, Earldee, and Vincent; Mother-in-law Gladys Kent Evans, Brothers-in-law James (Carolyn) Kent, Milton (Glenda Kent), and Sisters-in-Iaw Gretchen Nutter, and Pamelia (Michael) Moore; and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.

Anticipating enjoying her retirement, envisioning fun in the sun and unlimited fishing, Peggine Cordella Coates was granted her ultimate retirement from the toil of life, ironically on 9 -11, 2012.

As a 911 dispatcher for 10 years, and a 911 Shift Supervisor for 6 with the P.G. County Police Department, she "watched over" officers as she monitored their need for assistance when in route to a scene. She was the voice that responded to the pleas for help from many who were looking for rescue from danger. After 9 years in the Office of Homeland Security, officially retiring April 1st of this year, she spent a total of 27 years saving countless lives.

Sitting on the front line of evil, she was extremely dedicated to her vocation and knew what it meant to "neither slumber nor sleep" as she surrendered to stress-filled days and often late nights laboring for the protection of others. Wanting to be a "keeper from harm," Peggine was a giver – a woman endowed by God with the "gift of help."

A native of Calvert County, she graduated from Northern High School, joined the U. S. Marines Corps., and served five years from 1982-1987. It was there, particularly in Okinawa, where she learned to be adventuresome, and developed a taste for exotic foods and fine dining. Considering herself to be a culinary genius, she often put her hospitality skills to work, always preparing an impressive spread for guests, frequently spoiling her nephews.

As a dispatcher, her days were saturated with exposure to vivid episodes of citizen's adversity. This gave Peggine endless opportunities to ponder evil, and she wondered why it was so prevalent in the world. She would hold lengthy and heated debates about the fairness of God with her Mom, brother-in-law, and sister. Her heart of compassion and quest for truth led her to initially embrace Judaism; soon thereafter, she learned the God of the Old Testament was the Messiah in the New. She committed her life to Christ and progressively learned about the Helper and Rescuer of the world. Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2002, she battled health issues that progressively led to a series of complications and seeming all too soon, her "early retirement."

Peggine's labor was driven by a commitment to independently provide for her daughter Leslie, and by her love for people. She leaves behind her mother Gladys, father Herman, daughter Leslie, brothers Vonzell and Nathan, sister Tracey, brother-in-Iaw David, and nephews, Dave, Aaron, Stephen and Ian. As well, sharing her loss, are a host of uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends.
