Sig's Gourmet Butcher Shop will carry on without its late founder

WICHITA — With the Sept. 2 death of Sigmund "Sig" Everhart, 59, some devoted customers of his Sig's Gourmet Butcher Shop in Derby have wondered what will happen to the store.

"We're going to continue to run it just like Sig was still with us," says Aretta Everhart, his widow. "This was his dream, and we're going to go forward with this."

Everhart is running the business with her 29-year-old son, Justin.

"His daddy worked with him for quite a bit and taught him as much as he possibly could," Everhart says.
