I was blessed to know Bevin for a very short time, which I am so grateful for. I came to know him when he came to my house with his friend Brandon to a pool gathering and BBQ. Then he joined us at lake Thunderbird for a wonderful day. To me he was such a gentle soul so kind. I have 8 cats, and when he was at my home it was amazing that he had such a way with them. I could tell he truly cared, and had a gift to share. Thank you mom and dad for raising such a great young man, he won't be forgotten.

Rhys and my son, Robert Felton, developed an unique relationship. Their connection included many house visits between the Coker and Felton families, which included Bevin. What became transparent to me is the love between Rhys and Bevin, as I suspect is the case for many male siblings, yet there was something very special about these two brothers. It was truly a beautiful blessing to witness the love shared and felt.

Coker Family, I give you strength as you process and find a new normal. The loss of a child/sibling is an experience no one seeks.
I hope peace will find its' place in your hearts. Know you are in our thoughts.

I met Bevin years ago when he was just a kid. I was working at McClains RV with Scott. He and his brother were very polite. A sign of great parenting. My heart felt condolences to your family.
