Bevin Ace Blackham

4/18/1949 ~ 4/14/2022

Bevin Ace Blackham, born April 18th, 1949 to Ace Walter and Norma Mikkelsen Blackham, passed away April 14th, 2022.

Bevin married Carol Jean Christensen Blackham on June 20th, 1969. On April 20th, 1993, they were able to take their two children to the Manti Temple where they were sealed for Time and All Eternity.

Bevin was the proud father of Dawn (Kerry) Coates and Austin Blackham. Nothing made him more proud than his grandchildren. When he had good health, he loved helping people and treasured going on safaris with his family.

Bevin worked for Road Runner Travel Trailer, Ron Green Chevrolet, and for Snow College in the Fire and Safety Department. He worked as a Deputy Fire Marshal for the state of Utah. At these jobs he made a lot of friends, but ended up making just as many enemies. After retirement, because of health issues, he worked at Walmart and Terrel’s, where he made even more friends. He loved working with his hands, be it fire suppression systems, automobile mechanics, wood working, leather working, photography, or tinkering with little puzzles. He loved to build and set off rockets, and always got so excited when they would launch new space projects.

No animal came into his life that wasn’t a friend – aside from black widows or rattle snakes. A lot of his life he has had pets and critters, many to the dismay of his wife.

Bevin is survived by his wife Carol Blackham, his sister Faye Ockey, sister-in-law Lois Tucker, his daughter Dawn (Kerry) Coates, and son Austin Blackham. His ten grandchildren, Brandon (Shalie), Rebekka, Alex, and Carson Coates. Kylee (Kelli) Julander, and James, Madison, and Justin Blackham. As well as two great grandsons, Carter and Gunner Coates.

He cheated death eight years ago, and we are all so grateful that we got that extra time with him.

Services will be held Wednesday April 20, 2022 at 11am at the Moroni Chapel, with a visitation from 9:30 to 10:30am.
