Mr. Averett was born January 18, 1937 in Richland Parish, LA and passed from this life on March 23, 2019 in West Monroe, LA at the age of 82.

My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Mr. Averett for your loss. No doubt he lived a long, fulfilling life and you will miss him dearly. I hope you can draw comfort from Gods word, as I have, where He promises us that there is going to be a resurrection and that we can be reunited with our dear loved ones again - right here on the earth.
