He was always a well respected citizen and was ever ready to give a helping hand and a kind word for everybody he met.
He leaves one sister, Mrs. F. M. Johnson of Mold, and five brothers, Joseph and Henry of Mondovi, Jasper, Samuel and John of Oregon. Mr. Bevis always led a moral life and the news of his death was a shock to the community.
