, 75, of Loveland, Colo., died June 3, 2006, at McKee Medical Center in Loveland following a lengthy battle with cancer.

He was born in Philadelphia, Mo., on Feb. 15, 1931, to Peerless S. and Jessie (Pepper) Bevill.

Eldon married Wanda Blincoe on July 8, 1950, in Palmyra, Mo.

Eldon worked at Motorola, as well as farming and trucking, and owned a service station in the small town of Steffenville, Mo.

The family relocated to Lyons, Colo., in 1961, having discovered the area on one of several hunting trips to Colorado. Eldon was an avid outdoorsman who loved to hunt and fish. He started a roofing business, as well as purchasing and operating Ranger Motel on Main Street in Lyons. The family operated a bait shop, as well as the trailer park and apartments fondly known as “the chicken coops.” They also ran a Christmas tree business for several years. Eldon worked for the Red Owl Bakery in Denver for several years.

Eldon later purchased land and built and operated a trailer park in Silt, Colo. After selling their various interests in Lyons and Silt, the couple moved to Pueblo, Colo., where Eldon worked as an operator for the Denver and Rio Grand Railroad. They purchased a small farm west of Pueblo, and raised Buckskin show horses, and also ran a hog feeding operation, which they sold upon their retirement. They relocated to Loveland in 2002 after selling the farm to be closer to their family.

Eldon is survived by daughters Wanda and husband Ron French, and Lisa and husband Phillip Severence, all of Loveland, and Teresa and husband Chris Bade of Cheyenne, Wyo.; seven grandchildren: Anissa and husband Mark Jiminez, and Aimee French, all of Phoenix, Ariz., Allie French of Loveland, Glenda and husband Mike Sullivan, and Toni and husband Cecil Hugie, all of Cheyenne, Amanda and husband Robert Demientieff of Fairbanks, Alaska, and David Severence of Brighton, Colo.; and five great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his wife in 2002, and his parents.
