Bervil Hillis, 52, passed away peacefully at his home in Sikeston, Missouri on October 22, 2019, after a long race with cancer.

He was born in Cape Girardeau, Missouri on January 30, 1967, to Nedra Manes Hillis and Eddie Hillis. On March 4, 1995, he married Carole Moore.

Bervil graduated from Southeast Missouri State University in 1988. Bervil enjoyed drag racing and is known for driving "The World's Fastest Work Truck." He planned on leaving black marks on the Streets of Gold.

Bervil is survived by his wife Carole; his mother Nedra of Dexter, Missouri; his mother-in-law Mary Gayle Moore of Cape Girardeau, Missouri; a brother-in-law, two aunts, two uncles, and several cousins.

Bervil was preceded in death by his father, Eddie Hillis; his grandparents, Bervil G. and Juanita Hillis and Austin and Imogene Manes; an aunt and a cousin. Bervil was also preceded in death by his father-in-law Carroll Wayne Moore. Bervil was upset that "Fat Daddy" beat him to the finish line in their race to Heaven.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 9, 2019, at the First Baptist Church, 206 S. Walnut, Bernie, Missouri. The service will be officiated by Pastor Gary Gilbert, Bervil's long-time friend.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

We were very proud to work with you. Your commitment and dedication to TSA, your co-workers, and the traveling public was exemplary. I sincerely enjoyed our discussions and the humility you exhibited on a daily basis. Keep an eye on us if you get a chance. We all know you are looking down upon us favorably. Sincerely, Duane Huelsmann

My prayers to all of Bervil's family. Bervil & his dad were favorites of Rhyno Performance for so many years. Both their talent levels were as great as any we had ever seen. Heaven just gained another 1000 Hp!!

God Speed, Bervil. Enjoyed talking about bikes and racing with you at TSA in Cape. You always impressed me as a man with unlimited energy who knew how to squeeze every bit of horsepower out of life, just like with your gixxer.
