Everette Lasley was born on June 27, 1929 in rural Caddo County, Oke. to Glenn and Mary (Curnutt) Lasley. When he was 11, his family moved to Oakdale, Cal. near Stockton. Growing up playing football Everette acquired the nickname of, “Moose,” for which he was most commonly known. After graduating high school, Moose joined the U.S. Navy where he played football until becoming a landing craft section leader during the Korean War. At the end of his enlistment the Truman Act bought him two more years in Korea before he returned to civilian life and spent a couple of years driving truck for Blinko transporting produce all over the country. Around 1955 he stopped driving truck and returned to the Stockton area. He became a car salesman at the Gene Gabbard Lincoln-Mercury and Honda dealership and quickly moved into management. In his life Moose fished the Pacific coast from Alaska to Mexico. In 1972 he made the best catch of his life when he married Elizabeth “Betty” Hoeser. She became his favorite fishing buddy, pinochle partner and life partner. They loved fishing in their boat the, “Mobe-Loma,” named after their children. They towed that boat all over the west coast and to Canada in their pursuit of “The Big One.” Brookings was a favorite fishing destination of Moose’s throughout his life. When he retired in 1988, he and Betty began spending the entire fishing season, May to October, here where Moose became known as, “The Sanddab King.” When Betty retired, they moved here permanently and enjoyed fishing and playing pinochle with their many friends. He is survived by his wife Betty of 37 years, his step-daughters Lorraine C. Lasley of Mare Island, Cal. and Diane Leibelt of Lodi, Cal.; his step-son Mathew Bosse of Tucson, Az.; his brother Glenn Lasley Jr. of Modesto, Cal.; his sisters Marylou Campbell and Naomi Raff of Manteca, Cal.; and by his 5 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, and his grandson Randy Cordova. Moose was a Free and Accepted Mason in the Stockton Morning Star Lodge #68 and a member in good standing of the Valley of Stockton 32° Scottish Rite Orient of California
