March 27, 1951 - December 18, 2021
Everard Murchison Cheesman Jr, affectionately known as “Cheesy” or “June”, passed away on December 18, 2021 at the age of 70 in West Palm Beach, Florida. During his battles with Multiple Sclerosis and cancer Cheesy displayed his courage and inner strength by his ability to accept these life changing challenges without a complaint but with grace, a smile and a gentle spirit. Cheesy was a hero who stayed strong for those who loved him, until the end. Throughout his life Cheesy studied philosophy, religion and was a constant avid reader who never went anywhere without one of his books. This was manifested in his understanding and insight into the world at large. His family, friends and all whom he came in contact with, recognized and appreciated the depth of his understanding and his wisdom. He had a successful career as a medical technologist. He loved scuba diving and proudly held a Private Pilot license. In 1979 he met his future wife at work, where he was her boss. Totally devoted to each other, they had a wonderful marriage of 36 years. Born to Sylvia and the late Everard Cheesman, Sr., in Trinidad and Tobago, Cheesy is mourned by a loving family who misses him terribly. Everard is survived by his wife, the Honorable Judge Maxine Cheesman, Mother, Sylvia, his brothers, Kurt, Glenford, Neverson (Pat), Maxwell, his only sister, Carol; nieces Shauna Mein, Ph.D., Khadeen Cheesman-Were, M.D., Cherisse Cheesman, Asa Cheesman, M.D., Alleyna Cheesman, J.D., Allysa Cheesman-Lloyd, M.D.; nephew Jason; sisters-in-law, Judy Cheesman, and Jacqueline Cheesman, J.D; nephew-in-laws Peter Were, Greg Mein and James Lloyd; and his great nephews and niece Oliver (9), Sidney (8), Lara (6) and Lev (2). Cheesy will be honored with a virtual celebration of life at 4:30 p.m., on Wednesday December 29th at Palms West Funeral Home, 110 Business Park Way, Royal Palm Beach, and Florida 33411.
