Bev attended VMI where he played varsity basketball, competing against such basketball greats as Jerry West (West Virginia) Oscar Robertson (Cincinnati) and Jeff Cohen (College of William and Mary). He spent his professional career in the heavy highway construction business building many roads and bridges throughout the Commonwealth beginning in the 1960’s and extending over a more than 50-year career.
Bev was the consummate southern gentlemen. He was a kind and gentle man despite his towering 6’6” height. He loved his family above all else in life. He enjoyed watching almost any sporting contest with a particular passion for college football and college basketball. He was truly in his element when attending Virginia Cavaliers’ football games with his sons.
Bev was an avid reader and was especially interested in American History. His love of reading, combined with his interest in American politics always made him well equipped for lively conversations and informative discussions with family and friends.
