-Springfield- Clyde Rogers Bevill of Old Tusculum Road, Springfield, Georgia died Saturday evening at home. He was the first child born to Clyde Rezone and Susie Bell Mercer Bevill and brother to Mary Grace Kennedy. He was born on March 23, 1937 at home in Egypt, Georgia in the community known then as Edward's Town. In the 1950's, he was a pioneer in the telephone industry by being the only lineman for the county under the Dixie Telephone Company in that he replaced the old crank phone with the new rotary dial. Being a tireless worker and having a love of the outdoors led him to venture into the timber industry under Bevill Logging. In later years, he thrived on hard work and a determination to see any project or challenge completed to the end. His day was fulfilled when riding his beloved tractors and singing endlessly to the top of his lungs on the farm. God blessed him with a long, full life and the family is hopeful to be able to see him again one day soon in heaven. He is survived by his faithful wife, Ruth; daughter, Meloney and son-in-law, Derrick Exley of Springfield; son, Mark Rogers and daughter-in-law, Vicki Bevill; granddaughters, Ashley G. and Alexis L. Bevill all of Cumming, Georgia and dear friends, Buddy Newton and Billy Rountree. Visitation will be held on Tuesday, September 1, 2015, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. with funeral services to follow at 11:30 in the chapel of Riggs Funeral Home.
