Last updated 1/11/2018 at 9:38pm

Marvin William ("Call me Bill") Bevill was born April 8, 1924 in Los Angeles, California as the second of four children. He attended John Marshall High School, then entered the army in 1943. He was part of the 778th Coast Artillery Battalion and fought in many areas including Rhineland, Western Europe and the Battle of the Bulge in Ardennes. After the war, Bill met and married the love of his life, Ruth Anne Frazier. They enjoyed 69 wonderful years together until her passing in July of this year.

The couple moved to Fallbrook in 1988 and quickly became part of the community. Bill and Ruth were very active members of the Fallbrook United Methodist Church with Bill an active member of the church maintenance crew until he just couldn't paint anymore. He loved greeting people every Sunday and formed many long lasting relationships. Bill had a generous soul, always thinking of others and sharing what he had. He was always the first to volunteer to help, build or paint, and completed projects with enthusiasm and a story. Always a story.

Bill died peacefully in his home December 27, 2017 with his daughter Nancy and grandson Kenny by his side. He is survived by his brother Parker and sister Shirley; his daughter Nancy Wickus of Temecula, his daughter Linda Fragassi and son Tom Bevill, both of Bella Vista, Arkansas. He also has four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. If heaven needs painting, I'm sure he's on it.

A small graveside service will be held at Miramar National Cemetery January 17 at 10:30 a.m.
