Herbert Lee Bevill, fondly known as "Herb or Mr. Bevill", age 82 years, 1 month and 1 day, went to be with our Lord on Saturday, October 15, 2011.
Herb was born in Philadelphia, MO and came to California as a Navy Man in 1951. Mr. Bevill was a veteran of the Korean Conflict and served with the US Navy for four years on the USS Yorktown as a Gunner's Mate for two tours. He was a former resident of Salinas, and had currently resided in Exeter. Herb was a retired Teamster Union member and also a member of the American Legion of Exeter and of the Community Bible Church of Visalia; New Life Assembly of Exeter and of the Grace Christian Fellowship of Salinas.
Herb was an avid trucker/driver. He worked many years driving trucks for Lloyd Johnson Trucking, for Bevill Trucking as Owner-Operator and most recently for Granite Rock as Truck Driver and subhauler. He trained many new drivers in the various positions throughout his work history. In retirement, he loved taking his family on road trips in the family motor home and most recently his joy was taking his great-grandbaby for rides on his motorized scooter. Herb will be missed by many!
