After battling chronic illness over an extended period, we are very sorry to advise that Simon Everton lost a final battle to pneumonia and passed away on Saturday, 12 November 2016.
Following a successful career as a Baltic shipbroker, Simon became a well known and respected industry expert. He will be remembered by many for his work as an expert witness in cases involving chartering practice, as the 'go to' person on market rates.
Simon became a full member of the LMAA in 2012. Prior to arbitrating, he had represented Chartermain Shipping, Main Shipping and Bharat Shipping as a shipbroker, in which capacity he had been a member of the Baltic since 1973.
Set out below are details of Simon's funeral arrangements.
There will be a private committal at Mortlake Crematorium on Thursday 24 November 2016 at 1000. Family flowers only.
At 1100, a Service of Celebration of the Life of Simon Everton will be held at St Michael’s Church, 60 Elmwood Road, Chiswick, London W4 3DZ. All are welcome.
Afterwards, at 1230 there will be refreshments at The Richmond Football Club, Richmond Athletic Ground, Twickenham Road, Richmond TW9 2SF.
Our thoughts are with Simon's widow, Susanna and their family at this very sad time.
