Alan Douglas Beavers

October 26, 1954May 13, 2018

Alan Douglas Beavers, 63, died May 13, 2018. Born on October 26, 1954, he was the fourth child of the late Merwin G. Beavers and the late Louise Cook Beavers. He is survived by his brother Gordon Beavers and his family of Fayetteville AR, by his sister Carroll Beavers Patterson of Austin TX and her family, by his brother David Beavers and his family of St. Louise MO and by his brother Larry Beavers of Switzerland.

He attended Canyon High, New Braunfels and San Antonio Community College before pursuing a career in music. Alan was well known in the close-knit musical community of central Texas. Not only had he played in bands since he was a teen-ager but he had carved out a nice career as a sound engineer.

Alan had many talents besides music. He built cases for guitars and sound equipment and eventually started building vintage race cars with one of his brothers. He loved photography, hunting for fossils and anything to do with astrophysics. He was quite the Renaissance Man

On Sunday, May 27, 2018 from 3:00 to 7:00 PM there will be an Alan Beavers Memorial Blues Jam at Riley’s Tavern, New Braunfels TX. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the charity of your choice.

Alan was one of a kind. So talented in so many ways. I must have played 300 gigs with him. He was a fantastic musician and he will be missed by us all.

I haven't seen Alan in years; the last time was in Galveston, Texas. He was performing with Fred Mitchim and it was incredible (as usual). I spent most of the 80's playing music with Alan in The Zone mostly in Austin, Texas and with the Beavers Brothers Band in New Braunfels, Texas. He was extremely talented, gifted in working with electronic/sound technology, and had a great sense of humor. Sad to hear he's gone. Heaven gets another talented musician!
