Hugh M. Everline, 92, passed away peacefully on Friday, Jan. 18, 2013, at his home surrounded by friends and family.

Born Nov. 10, 1920, in Cleveland, Ohio, he was the son of the late George and Goldie Everline.

He had a wonderful life and was very proud to have served his country as a Marine in World War II and was part of the battle of Iwo Jima.

He had many careers throughout his life, including being a Maryland State policeman for 32 years, rising to the rank of major and the first commander of the Kennedy Highway.

He was also a college professor for the University of Maryland system, and finally a chicken farmer before retiring.

He obtained a doctor of jurisprudence degree and designed the original criminal justice program for Harford Community College.

He loved all things adventurous and built and paddled a kayak all over Maryland, owned and piloted a Piper Cub airplane and drove a stock race car called the PDQ-40.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Judy, and is survived by his wife, Kathleen. He is also survived by his children, Jim and Linda; his granddaughter, Jessica and her husband, Brad; great-grandchildren, Kylie and Amelia; his sisters, Janet Roberts and Betty Jump; brother, J. Gilbert Everline; sister-in-law, Barbara Warrenfeltz and her husband, Pete. He is also survived by Kathleen's family, whom he loved and who brought him great pleasure in his final years — Premo and Tammy Pennesi, their children and grandchildren; and sister-in-law, Dorothy Shives.

Services and burial will be private.

Donations in his honor may be made to Hospice of Washington County.
