Gary Edwin “Tuff” Bevan
Gary Edwin Bevan, Age 78, returned home to his Heavenly Father on Monday, January 1, 2018. Gary was born in Tooele, UT on August 15, 1939 to Ralph Bevan and Alice St. Clair Bevan. He was an Eagle Scout, a 1957 graduate of Tooele High and served in the United States Marine Corps from 1959-1963. After his military service, Gary began work at Kennecott Copper where he worked over 40 years until his retirement. He married Sandra Lynne Maloney on October 8, 1983. Gary served his community as President of Settlement Canyon Irrigation Company and Tooele County Cattlemen’s Association. He loved the Lord and served in many callings for the Church of Latter-Day Saints. He built many relationships as he served in the Bishopric for his ward, the Tooele South Stake High Council and a service mission at the Vernon Livestock Welfare Ranch.
Known by friends and family as “Tuff”, he was happiest watching a rodeo, feeding the cows, enjoying his wife’s cooking and spending time at the family cabin. The highlight of his day was driving up to “check on Settlement Canyon” with his grandson, JT.
Gary is survived by his wife, Lynne; children Anne Marie Allred, Shelly (Cody) Smith, Ty (Brooke) Bevan; grandchildren, Ashley, McLaine, Madelyn, Katelyn and JT; great grandchildren Mackley, and Hazel; sister, Pamela (Raymond) Johnson.
