With deep sadness, we announce the passing of Bevan Andrew Price on November 28, 2022 at the age of 39.
He was born at home on the family ranch in Jackson, CA. He is survived by his daughter Cori Price; Daralyn (mother) and Jim Bertholf (stepfather); Marvin and Roberta Price (father); his siblings Crispin Price, Brianne Price, Maudelyn Price, Jazmine and Darrin Price (niece and nephew); and Ashley DeGuarda (cousin). Bevan is now at peace and reunited with his brother and best friend Cory, his beloved Uncle Greg and Grandpa Sal.
We often mused that he should’ve been born in the deep South wrestling alligators and catching snakes, where his sense of fearlessness and adventure would’ve been more appreciated and even admired. If you knew Bevan, you had a story. He was most comfortable living life on the edge. At 8 years old, his little sister was too scared to go into the basement, so Bevan went downstairs and was bit by a rattlesnake. He almost lost his feet from frostbite when he was 15. By the time he was 20, he had at least a dozen motorcycle and car accidents. Miraculously surviving, but not without injury. We recall the time he successfully free climbed a 60-foot rock wall, laughing through every minute while his friends screamed in fear. We often referred to Bevan as our MacGyver as he could fix anything. It became a family joke, how long would we struggle before we say, “can we ask Bevan now?”
Family was important to Bevan. He drove his rock crawler for 10 hours on back roads to be with his Grandpa on the last day of his life. Bevan had no boundaries when it came to matters of the heart. The day his daughter Cori was born, Bevan drove covered in diesel and oil from his mining job, to welcome his baby girl with that ear-to-ear Bevan grin.
His brother Cory passed on his passion for fitness and bodybuilding to Bevan. Cory would have been so proud that Bevan achieved his personal training certification.
Bevan’s passion for life, and love for his family and friends grew stronger as he journeyed through life. He adored his sisters and was so proud of them for being the strong, smart and kind young women they grew to be. He was always concerned about their well-being and did all he could to protect them. That’s what he did, he cared. This summer, he was looking forward to spending time with his brother in Colorado. His mama always knew she could count on him and that he loved and cared for her more than anything! He has moved on now. He is in good company, with Cory, Grandpa, Grandma, Nana, Papa, Uncle Dean and Uncle Greg. He is free to find his new path along with some new angel friends and let’s just say they better be tough. Bevan, you were an amazing friend, father, brother, nephew, grandson and the absolute best son ever. Until we meet again, we will hold you in our hearts. Thank you, we love you.
There will be a celebration of life on Saturday, January 21 at Underground MMA Amador Gym (130 Lincoln Avenue, Sutter Creek, CA) at 1 p.m.
