William Maurice Beverley, 93, of Fountain Valley California passed away peacefully November 19, 2021. William was born on September 28, 1928 in Jenkins, Kentucky. He attended school there where he met and married his wife of 72 years, Glima Beverley, in 1948. He graduated from Virginia Polytechnic and was a US Air Force Captain. They moved to Long Beach California in 1950 where they had two sons Stephen and Dale, relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina in 1960, and then back to California in 1966, and to Fountain Valley in 1967 where they have lived since. There they celebrated their 90th birthdays and 70th anniversaries together with many friends and family.

William was a terrific father and husband, a perfect role model in every aspect of his life. In his career he was involved in many remarkably wide-ranging aerospace engineering projects; he was especially proud of his grandsons, all of which went into engineering as well, often consulting with them on their education and projects. He enjoyed his friends, camping and holidays with his family, and treasured his beloved Boston Terrier companions. William was a longtime member of the Fount Methodist Church in Fountain Valley, the Garden Grove Masons Lodge #351, and Pickups Limited of Orange County with a collection of 1956 Ford F100 Pickups.

William is survived by his son Dale and his wife Gloria, grandson William Alan Beverley, wife Ashley and great grandchildren Avery and Forrest; grandson Daniel Adam Beverley, wife Stephanie and great granddaughter Holly; step-grandson Jerry Maldonado and step-great-grandchildren Gabrielle, Jerry Jr., Christian, and Arianna; son Stephen and his wife Deborah Dobson and grandson Christopher Victor Beverley; and sister-in-law Phyllis Howard in Michigan.

William was loved and will be missed by all – he leaves big shoes that will be hard to fill.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made in his honor to his church, the Fount (http://thefount.church/church/).
