Everett R. "Red" Setter died peacefully on March 15, 2017 at the D. J. Jacobetti Home for Veterans in Marquette. Born January 22, 1934 in Little Lake, Red was the oldest son of Everett and Violet (Sarasin) Setter. He grew up on the farm with his parents and siblings until he joined the Navy after high school. Red retired from working as a union construction laborer for many years. Red's love of sports included playing fast-pitch softball in the Keg League and coaching Junior Hockey for several years, highlighted by a PeeWee B state championship in 1978. Red was a devoted Detroit Tigers, Red Wings, and Lions fan and shared the love of these sports with his grandchildren. Red was well known for his wood working skills and enjoyed hunting and working in the woods with his brother. He leaves his loving wife of 54 years, Brenda (Bernard) Setter and three children: Ron (RuthAnn) of Rogers, Minnesota, Sharon Brownell of Marquette; and Lisa (Frank) Henn of Sauk City, Wisconsin; his grandchildren, Nichole, Brandi, Thomas, Anastasia, Molly and Macey; and his brother, Ronald (Judi) Setter of Little Lake, as well as many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Ray, Kenny, Lee and a sister, Joanne Cramer. The family would like to express their appreciation to all of Red's caregivers at Jacobetti for their exceptional care and kindness extended to Red and his family. The family will receive relatives and friends at the Canale-Tonella Funeral Home on Saturday, March 18, 2017 beginning at 10:00 a.m. until the time of funeral service at 11:00 a.m. in the funeral home with the Rev.
