Gerald “Danny” Bevill

Statesboro, Ga. — Gerald “Danny” Bevill, age 80, passed away peacefully in his home on December 1,2022. Danny was the baby boy of the family born on January 22, 1942, to Gilbert and Neta Bevill. He and his twin sisters, Bonnie and Connie, helped their mother deliver daily and Sunday papers before going to school. He continued to delivery papers even after he was married. He graduated from Robert W Groves High School, in Garden City, GA.

In 1962 Danny married the love of his life, Annette. They were married for 60 years. They moved to Effingham County in 1979, where they raised their two sons Johnny and Lynn. Danny drove a dump truck for Ted Romine, then later went to work for Bonner Sheet Metal, Delta Metals and Metalcraft. Danny made the move and chose the career path in HVAC. He attended HVAC classes and worked for Coastal Air Conditioning. He later worked his way up the ladder to a supervisor position with Trussel HVAC and worked with them until an auto accident forced him to retire.

After retiring Danny and Annette moved to Elloree, SC on Lake Marion. Throughout their life together they loved riding horses, camping, fishing, hunting, and riding their motorcycles. They loved the lake life, being on the lake catfishing, going for boat rides and swimming. Danny was an avid deer hunter, known to many as “Coonhound”.

Danny was a great cook. His specialties were Boston butts, grilled chicken and an awesome catfish stew. While Annette worked, Danny spent his days cooking, cleaning, and goofing off with his favorite sidekick, Buddy Morgan.

When Danny’s health started failing and they needed to be closer to family, they moved to Bulloch County next to their longtime friends, Ricky and Linda Sellers. Danny loved spending time outdoors with his beloved beagle Crackerjack.
