Bevil Eugene Deckert

August 19, 1950 — February 14, 2024

Port Neches

Bevil Eugene Deckert, a cherished individual who touched the lives of many, has passed away at his residence in Port Neches, Texas. Born on August 19, 1950, in Liberty, Texas, Bevil lived a life filled with remarkable accomplishments and profound connections.

A memorial service will be held in tribute to Bevil's extraordinary life. It will take place on February 18, 2024, at Melancon Levingston Funeral Home located at 2001 Nall Street, Port Neches, TX 77651. The service is set to commence at 2:00 PM and conclude at 3:00 PM.

 Born to Joe and Joyce Deckert, Bevil was an exceptional role model. Prior to Ameripol Synpol, Bevil was a beloved coach to hundreds of athletes in Bridge City, Silsbee, and Stephen F. Austin in Port Acres. Bevil was admirably known as a talented, local musician with The Texas Highway Band. For decades, he was a local singing entertainer at various venues. Later in his music career, he selflessly brought joy with his performances at local nursing homes. 

 Bevil dedicated his career to ensuring the safety of others. He worked as a Safety Manager for Ameripol Synpol in the refinery industry. His commitment to his profession was unwavering, and he served faithfully until his well-deserved retirement after many years of service.

 He was preceded in death by his brother, Mitchell Deckert.

 Beyond his professional achievements, Bevil was a loving husband and a devoted father. For fifty-three years, he shared a beautiful journey with his beloved wife, Diana Deckert. Together, they created a warm and nurturing home that became the cornerstone of their family's bond. Bevil's love extended to his children: Brandon Deckert and his wife, Crystal of Hamshire, TX; Jon Deckert and his wife, Courtney of Groves, TX; and Kara Metcalf and her husband, Jared of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. He was an exceptional role model and source of strength for them every step of the way. As Bevil’s life continued to flourish with joyous moments, he cherished the friendships he forged along the way. Gerald Addison of Nederland, TX, and Stan "My Man" Williams were more than friends—they were like family to Bevil. Their support and companionship added immeasurable richness to his life's journey. The joy that Bevil experienced multiplied when he became a doting grandfather. His grandchildren brought endless delight into his world: Zack Deckert and wife, Jenna; Anistyn Roggenkamp and husband, Taylor; Breylon Cropper; Easton Cropper; Madalyn Metcalf; and Avery Metcalf. He loved spending time with them and treasured every special moment they shared together. In addition to being a loving family man, Bevil was known for his kind heart and genuine compassion. He always found time to lend a helping hand and spread warmth to those around him. His generosity and thoughtfulness endeared him to many, leaving an indelible impact on their lives. As we bid farewell to Bevil Eugene Deckert, we honor the memory of a remarkable individual whose legacy will continue to inspire. He will be deeply missed by his sister, Karen Gandy, and his nieces, Heather Johnson and Felicia Gandy, his favorite dog, Duke, and all those lucky enough to have known him.

 Bevil has now embarked on his eternal journey, but the love he shared and the memories he created will forever remain in our hearts. May his soul find everlasting peace as we remember and celebrate a life well-lived.
