The death of Rev. Everett John Corcoran of Perth-Andover, NB, occurred on December 27, 2019 at Hotel Dieu St. Joseph Hospital. He was the eldest son of Henry and Helen (Daye) Corcoran.

Everett was a loving and devoted husband to his wife, Lois (Hanscom) whom he married in 1955. He was a special dad to his two daughters, Ardith (Scott) Bowerman and Esther (Llewellyn) Cote. He is also survived by four brothers, Wade, Hank, Tom, and Ben. He is also survived by five sisters, Betty, Ellen, Linda, Gail, and Edith.

He was a loving grandfather to Marilyn, April, Virginia, Amanda, Jonathan, and Devon. Step-grandchildren Steven and Adam, great grandchildren Alexis, Drake, Raven, Colby, Logan, Joshua, Zoe, William, Chloe, Jersey, Shelby, and Keira. Step-grand children, Emma, Mya, and Seth.

Reverend Everett Corcoran became an Apostolic Christian when he repented of his sins in April, 1951, was baptized in Jesus' Name by his Pastor, Rev. W.J. Rolston, and received the Holy Spirit on August 17, 1951. It was the first time that he received a Missionary call to minister in India. He became ill with tuberculosis and spent nine months in hospital. He was miraculously healed of this disease. He began his long lifetime Ministry in 1956 and became a fulltime Pastor in New Denmark and pastored there until 1962. From New Denmark, Everett and his wife Lois travelled to Corner Brook, Newfoundland to begin forming an new church. They remained in Newfoundland until 1966. They then went to Stockton, California to Western Apostolic Bible School and remained there until 1970.

It was in 1970, Reverend Everett Corcoran and his wife received their Foreign Mission Appointment. They spent 29 years in total in Missionary work. They were the first UPC Missionaries to the Islamic country of Pakistan. Seven months after arriving in Pakistan, war broke out between Pakistan and India, air raids, curfews, and bombs falling. Evacuated to Iran for a few weeks, but back to Pakistan for many years of Missionary endeavor. A bible school was established with a group of young men graduating every year going into the harvest field of Pakistan.

In 1988, their work changed to regional and for the next eleven years they travelled and evangelized in eleven countries; namely Sri Lanka, India, Burma (Myanmar), Hong Kong, China, Philippines, Thailand, Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, and Indonesia. During the past 17 years, Everett and Lois pastored short term in Madawaska, ME, Ste. Anne, NB, New Denmark, NB, Juniper, NB, and Fielding, NB. Everett has composed 117 Gospel songs, in which many of them were recorded.

Our Pastor and Missionary has blessed thousands with his dynamic teaching and his fervent worship is now singing in the presence of the Saviour he adored. He was truly "A man after God's own heart".

Resting at Calvary Tabernacle in Perth-Andover, NB, with visitation on Thursday from 2-4 and 7-9 pm. Funeral service will be held on Friday, January 3, 2020 at 2 pm from Calvary Tabernacle. Rev. David Ferrell officiating. Interment will be in the Hillcrest Cemetery.
