Bevis Funeral Home was founded in 1964 by Russell R. Bevis, and remains an independent family owned funeral home. Rodney “Rocky” Bevis has worked in or been around the funeral home his entire life, and in 1998 he acquired the funeral home from his father. Rocky’s daughter, Sarah, has joined her father in the funeral home and is the third Bevis generation to serve the community here.
Bevis Funeral Home in 1965
Much has changed in the 40 plus years since Bevis Funeral Home was founded. We have acquired funeral homes in Bristol, Crawfordville and Quincy to serve a wider area. The one constant over that time is that we at Bevis Funeral Home have had a single goal, that being to provide caring compassionate service to the families of our community. That goal is our duty at Bevis Funeral Home.
We feel that the duty to serve extends beyond the funeral home and our family and staff are active in many community organizations.
Providing families with closure through distinctly personalized services that honor and celebrate the lives of their loved ones in a comfortable and friendly environment.

The Camp Gordon Johnston Association proudly announces the establishment of the Camp Gordon Johnston Museum. Located in Carrabelle, Florida, the museum’s role is to preserve the heritage of the men who trained at the this camp during WW II. Carrabelle was the focal point of social life around the camp when it was open during WW II, and today continues its role as the preserver of the amphibious soldier’s heritage. Camp Gordon Johnston opened in 1942 for the sole purpose of training amphibious soldiers and their support groups, this camp trained a quarter of a million men, closing in June of 1946. The sacrifices and achievements of our WW II era citizens have led historians to label these individuals as the best generation America has yet produced. We feel it would be a tragedy not to display their accomplishments as a worthy lesson for today’s citizens. To this extent the museum promotes not only the history of WW II, but also portrays the gigantic effort that our nation poured into this conflict.The CGJ Museum has compiled an extensive history of the various units that trained here, as well as a photographic display of the area and life as it existed at the camp. Furthermore, the CGJ veterans have contributed the artifacts brought back from battles overseas, along with uniforms, mess kits, and all sorts of souvenirs, too numerous to name. The museum also preserves an oral history, preserving the experiences of our veterans. For example, Mr. George Blanchett, retired and currently living in Massachusetts, tells of airplanes from nearby Dale Mabry Field making strafing runs off Alligator Bay. The pilot attempted to perform a “loop.” Unfortunately, the inexperienced flier did not have sufficient altitude and dove straight into the ground. Many such stories are told in our publication, the Amphibian, official newspaper of the Camp Gordon Johnston Museum.
