Everett Smith died unexpectedly Tuesday.  Irving students will remember him Thursday night at a vigil.

Students will remember the para-educator and intramural coach tonight by holding a candlelight vigil outside Irving Middle School at 22nd & Van Dorn.   The vigil will begin at 7 p.m.

Everett's wife, Valarie, found him unresponsive Tuesday morning in their home.  Irving Principal Hugh McDermott says it's been hard on everyone at the school this week who knew Everett.  He says Everett was a "gentle giant" and will be missed.

Students were also encouraging each other to wear white on Friday to honor Smith.  Smith was 51.  He taught at Irving for more than 6 years.
