Everett W. Harrington, a retired accountant, died Sunday at a Ventura convalescent hospital after a brief illness. He was 84.

Harrington was born Dec. 9, 1915, in Santa Paula. He later attended college in Los Angeles and met his future wife there. He served in the Army during World War II.

After the war, Harrington and his wife moved to Ventura and he became an accountant at Brock Vegetable Co. in Oxnard. He later worked for 17 years for the county of Ventura as an accountant and auditor before retiring in 1978.

Harrington was preceded in death by his wife, Edeyth in 1994; their daughter, Margaret Paula Harrington in 1956, and two brothers, Harold and Melvin.
