Marion, Don and Kathy - So very sorry for your loss.
We have so many fond memories of growing up in Plumeville and Bev and your family were a big part of it.
As much as we remember Bev enjoying a good time with family and friends, I always think of him as the guy who got things done. Whether it was in the neighbourhood, on site at work, with the township or for the town, a lot of people benefited from Bev Plume getting things done.
He will be missed.

After a life of effort and energy he is finally at rest. Uncle Bev, always involved, in the know, building, creating, designing and planning. His voice though soft always spoke with purpose. A role model and mentor to many, who took pride in his work and in his family. He will be missed by all who knew him. Sending love to Kathy, Don and Auntie Marion. Sending hugs to Scott, Dana, Brett, Caleb, Connor and your families. We will miss him, and will meet again by and by.
