Rardon “Wink” Bevill
June 23, 1945 - January 4, 2017
Rardon (Wink) Bevill, 71, of Grangeville, Idaho, died Jan. 4, 2017, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Cottonwood, Idaho.
Wink was born on June 23, 1945, in Weed, N.M., to Rardon and Lea Bevill. He moved to Idaho as a young child where he met and married Barb Belnap. Together they had Tammy Hartman. After their divorce, he married the love of his life, George Ann Henderson-Fleetwood, and adopted her son, Bill Bevill. Together they had Kim Bevill. A majority of their life was spent in Grangeville where they raised their children. Most of their summers were spent at numerous logging camps while he was working.
Wink enjoyed logging, spending time with family and friends and hanging out at the Triangle. He loved Sunday drives with his family and took pride in giving each of his grandkids colorful nicknames. Being the lighthearted and kind person that he was, Wink made countless friends throughout his years working for Olympia Logging, Stuivenga Vessey Logging, Kaschmitter Enterprises Inc., and many other logging companies. After he retired, many of you will remember him spending his Sundays at the Triangle visiting with old friends and making new ones.
Wink was a loving father, husband, grandfather, and friend to all. He is survived by his daughters: Kimberly Bevill and Tammy Hartman of Grangeville; son, Bill (Francie) Bevill of Boise; granddaughters: Tasha Zumwalt (Kelly Siebert), Alexa and Olivia Bevill, Michelle Salinas; grandsons: Riley Bevill (Lauren), Tyler and Frankie Zumwalt, Brian Doser, Isiah Hartman; and numerous great-grandchildren and extended family. Wink was preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Ginger; wife, George Ann Bevill; and grandson, Jeffrey Doser.
A special thank you to the St. Mary’s Hospital staff in Cottonwood for their loving care and support throughout this tragic time. Also, thanks to the Mountain View funeral home in Lewiston for helping the family.
