In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you consider donations to the Dr. Layton H. “Tony” Beverage Scholarship Fund at Gloucester High School, 6680 Short Lane, Gloucester, Va. 23061. These funds will be used to support a yearly scholarship for a graduating senior.  

If the measure of a man is determined by the size of his heart, Tony Beverage’s limitless love for his family, friends and those he served during his career in education will be his everlasting legacy. Until we see him again, we will remember his unfailing good nature and the lessons he taught us about living and loving others.
