Bev was full of life and I have many warm memories of him. He took me on my first motorcycle ride - one I remember fondly! What I loved most about Bev was his laugh and his ability to make everyone feel special.

I hunted grouse with Bev for years. He sold me my first 2 English setters and they turned out to be the best grouse dogs you would ever want to hunt with. They enhanced my life so much! Bev helped me train them and we used my dogs and his to hunt. I remember his 2 best dogs ever and they were appropriately named Left and Right. My dogs were sons of Right. Tremendous dogs! When the grouse began to disappear Bev stopped hunting and said it would make him feel bad to shoot one at that time. Those times hunting with Bev were some of the finest years of my life and he will be missed.

Cathy, Eddie and family,
I had the pleasure of knowing Bev for many years at the Bank. He had a real gift for always bringing a smile to your face through his conversations and "comments". He was a very honest and uplifting person, qualities we can all admire and remember. So thankful he is no longer in pain but will sure miss him. Prayers of comfort and peace to you all

Mr. Anderson was also my teacher in 6th grade at Spotswood Elementary (Circa 1976). Funny story --I will always remember when I was in 4th or 5th grade and our room door was opened to the hall and we heard a slight ruckus... An isolated incident but a one that reflects some of the best teachings of my generation in the way of respect which I believe is lacking today. Mr. Anderson simply had the ear of a male in his hand, who was obviously a disciplinary problem that day, marching him to the office. It looked as if he was lifting him off his feet a bit to correct his hearing maybe? Perhaps he wasn't listening too well that day and testing Mr. Anderson's great patience and disrupting the class.

He was a great teacher but I didn't like having to read a whole book and then give a summary in front of the class... Yuck! He made it fun to learn and would joke around a lot... I remember I had a classmate named Patty Dove and he would call her Patty Pigeon almost always... She would just smile or laugh so obviously, she had a great sense of humor too and loved her teacher...

He played a ton of tennis at Eastover Tennis Courts in the summers for many many years and you would always know he was coming on one of his many motorcycles. I would see him around town and at Westover Swimming Pool in my late 30s and we would talk and joke around. He was a very laid back sweet guy that ALWAYS accepted you as you were...

Sorry to type so much but I do know this guy needs a bunch of recognition of how he influenced many and shaped them. I know he should have lived a lot longer but when you do pass at an older age, there are either less people still living to pay their respects or they just don't know that a great guy they knew isgone now to heaven which is where Mr. Anderson is for sure. My condolences to all of his remaining family.

Mr. Anderson was my 6th grade teacher at Spotswood Elementary and what a delight! He was funny, always singing tunes from Hee Haw TV show, was engaging as a teacher, and a complete joy. I have very fond memories of him and he is one my favorite teacher! He made a lasting impression on me.
Praying that God comforts the family as only He can at this time.

Bev was a true friend, a tennis buddy, a bright spot. Always up-beat and with a smile and a laugh. Bev was a free spirit who had the gift of making people around him feel good - a positive outlook he shared.
Sincere condolences to Bev's family.

Fond Memories of our deep conversations during leisure time spent in Duck, NC, with warm friends and family. Bev was a welcoming host who always made you feel part of his family. Our hearts are saddened of his passing, but gladdened his pain is over. Prayers for Cathy, Eddie, Addison, Mary, Steve and the girls.
Another candle has been blown out.
