Page 4C NEIGHBORS Hays Free Press May 8, 2013 t- BEVILL William Vernon Bevill, Jr., 68, died in an automobile accident on April 30, 2013 near his home in Mountain City, TX. Vernon is survived by his lov- ing wife of 48 years Mary Weedon Bevill, son Jer- emy Clayton "Clay," and two beautiful granddaughters, Peyten and Kyra, his mother, Louise Bevill Odum, and stepfather, Charles Odum, who reside in Mansfield, LA. Vernon also leaves behind scores of cousins and in-laws who will sorely miss their beloved "Junior." Vernon was preceded in death by his father, William Vernon Bevill, Sr., and sons, John Bryan and William Kevin. Vernon was born in Mans- field, LA on April 20, 1945. He was a proud and loyal graduate of the Mansfield High School having recently chaired and attended the 50th reunion of the Class of 1963. He was an avid out- doorsman and skilled hunter who went on to earn his BS Degree in Wildlife Biology from Louisiana Tech. He subsequently earned a MS Degree in Biology from New Mexico State University, specializing in waterfowl. In 1995, Vernon was named "Mumnus of the Year" by both universities. Upon graduation he joined the South Carolina Wild- life Department, working in Edgefield, SC. Vernon's specialty was wild turkey management and conserva- tion. He was a driving force behind the creation of the National Wild Turkey Federa- tion, and the relocation of the NWTF from Fredericks- burg, VA to Edgefield, SC. His work in South Carolina helped set the standards needed to develop wild turkey restoration programs throughout North America. He was a member of the first NWTF Advisory Board in 1973 and the first NWTF Technical Committee in 1975. In 2007, Vernon's con- tributions were recognized when he was honored as the recipient of the highly cov- eted Henry S. Mosby Award at the NWTF's 31st Annual Convention. Between 1980 and 1985, Vernon was the Executive Director of North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commis- sion. He served in Missis- sippi from 1987 to 1991 as the Executive Director of that state's Department of Wild- life and Fisheries. During his entire career Vernon was an active member and leader in the Ducks Unlimited, Inc. organization, receiving mul- tiple awards for his contribu- tions to preserving waterfowl and wetland resources. In 1993, Vernon joined the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department as the Director of the Small Game Program, which included the Resident and Migratory Game Bird programs and later, the Hab- itat Assessment Program. Vernon remained Program Director until his retirement in March 2010. During his tenure at TPWD, Vernon served as Texas' representa- tive on the Central Flyway Council for his entire career. He also served as the Central Flyway Consultant to the USFWS Service Regulations Committee from 1994-1999 and 2006-2008, where he worked diligently to promote additional hunter oppor- tunity in our state. He was the author of the agency's strategic plans for Upland and Migratory Game Birds and played a significant role in the creation of the Depart- ment's Quail Council. Upon his retirement from TPWD, Vernon joined his friend and former Louisiana Tech class- mate, Jim Willis, to work for the Wildlife Habitat Federa- tion, a non-profit organiza- tion focused on enhancing quail and upland bird habitat on private lands. MI who have had the op- portunity to know Vernon will remember him as a true friend, dedicated wildlife professional, and a caring, giving family man. He was truly humble and attributed his success to "...all those who have worked with me and been a part of my career, and helped make me a little smarter because of their presence in my life." None will ever forget his ample application of homespun Southern wit, wisdom, and colloquialisms. His smile was quick and endearing. He will be missed, but never forgot- ten.
