Visitation will be held on Saturday, August 5, 2023 at Pecos Funeral Home Chapel from 9:00 am until service time

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, August 5, 2023 at 2:00pm at Pecos Funeral Home Chapel. Military Honors will be given at the conclusion of the service.

Everett Jacob McGhee was born in Henderson , North Carolina to Scott & Heather McGhee on February 2, 1998. Upon realizing it was groundhog day, the doctor stated Jacob saw his shadow and was going back for 6 more weeks.  Mom refused.

He attended Pecos High School where he quickly used his Einstein talents to not do any school work until the end of school and totally stressed is school counselor out, making her believe he was not going to graduate. He completed 6 months worth of school work in 2 days to graduate just fine.

After highschool, Jacob entered the Marines and survived boot camp and the Crucible to become a Marine. He served four years in Japan and his specialty was in cyber security and secret squirrel stuff.  After returning from Japan, and serving another year in Arizona, Jacob transitioned to the Individual Ready Reserve in order to attend college and work on 2 masters degrees at the same time.

In addition to going to school full-time, Jacob worked for Mr. Jim Ivy at WaterWorks delivering salt, water and making great relationships with his customers. His dedication at work was unrivaled and his desire to assist the company to succeed was impressive.

He loved to work out and lift heavy weights. His knowledge allowed him to guide others in their pursuit of bodybuilding and take the correct supplements. His ability to research and learn about proven supplements allowed him to help numerous people in the gym and outside of the gym. Most who worked out with him did not come back as he tended to forget others were not on his level and the next day they couldn’t walk!

 Always up for a good time, he is forging the way for all of his fellow brothers in arms, who will definitely feel his spirit, both in mind and body, especially when they drink. Not being one to skip a good cigar, he asks his fellow Marines to "light em up brother" and see what happens. His dedication to his friends and desire to help anyone was what he was all about.

He is survived by his mom Heather McGhee of Pecos, TX, father E. Scott McGhee of Franklinton, NC, sister Bonnie Hair, brother E. Conner McGhee, brother Jeremiah Harris and paternal grandparents Ralph and Peggy McGhee. His extended family of friends and his Marine family will always miss him.

Jacob received one final call. One last hoorah to go fight the good fight , and he answered it.

And in Jacob fashion, “HELL YEA BROTHER”

“Til Valhalla,  see you on the other side”
