Everett H. Hyland, 78, on February 25, 2022

Everett H. Hyland, 78, a longtime resident of North Attleboro, formerly of Attleboro and
Foxboro, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on Friday, February 25, 2022.
Born in Attleboro on December 11, 1943, he was the loving son of the late Harold W. and Mildred A. (Healey) Hyland.

Everett grew up in Attleboro and North Attleboro and was a 1962 graduate of North Attleboro High School.

He was employed for 42 years and retired in 2004 as a production foreman at Fortifiber Corporation in Attleboro, formerly St. Regis Paper.

A true outdoorsman, Everett enjoyed camping, fishing and tending to his garden. He had a particular fondness towards birds and liked to spend time feeding them and watching them.
Everett was also a history buff and especially liked anything to do with the topic of the American Civil War. He liked Sci-Fi movies, western movies, specifically those starring John Wayne, playing lottery tickets, having an iced cold beer at the Falls A/C, and was an avid Boston sports fan. However, the times which he enjoyed the most were those spent in the company of his adoring family, especially his grandchildren.

He is survived by his devoted children: Shawn E. Hyland and his wife Stephanie of North Attleboro, Derik E. Hyland and his wife Jessi of North Attleboro, and Kerry L. (Hyland) Janas of Foxboro. He also leaves his cherished grandchildren: Sam E. Hyland of North Attleboro, Clara Hyland of North Attleboro, and Joseph M. Janas and Ann Marie Janas of Foxboro. He was the dear friend and former husband of Elaine M. Hyland of Holbrook. He also leaves many nieces and nephews.

He was the father-in-law of the late Russell T. Janas and the grandfather of the late Landon E. Janas.

He was the brother of the late Rose Mutlow, Gladys McLean, Virginia “Ginny” Ducharme, Ann Rivet, Jean “Beanie” Sabetti and Janice Abrahms.

Visitation, to which relatives and friends are most kindly invited to attend, will be held on Wednesday, March 2, 2022 from 5-7 PM in the Sperry & McHoul Funeral Home, 15 Grove Street, North Attleboro.

Everett will be laid to rest on “Hyland Hill” at Hillside Cemetery in Attleboro, at which time a private graveside service will be held.

In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may be made in Everett’s name to Mass Audubon, c/o Development Office, 208 South Great Road, Lincoln, MA 01773 or by visiting web.massaudubon.org.

  • Love you Everett!

    Thank you for letting me spend all those special occasions with you and your family. They became my family. And when I got married they became Pete’s family. All the times at the Cape playing horseshoes and meeting all new friends. It’s been a good life! Love you!

  • Everett, where do I begin? 1979, St. Regis Paper when we first met and it was Love at first sight! Here we are, 43 years later, blessed with our kids, grandkids and so many friends and family. You had a great “run” Everett and I am very grateful you were part of my life. I’m sad you are not with us anymore but so comforted to know you won’t have any more pain.  You’ll always be in all of our hearts for years to come.  I love you and I’m happy I was with you in your final days. You will be with all the “Hyland’s” now up on “Hyland Hill” as well as all those who have gone before us.  You rest now, Everett until we meet again.  
    Love, Elaine
