Elby Dewayne “Bama” Revis, Jr.

Elby Dewayne “Bama” Revis, Jr., age 63, of Dubuque, IA, completed his earthly journey on December 29, 2023, at home suddenly.  To honor Dewayne’s life, a private family service is being held.  The Tri-State Cremation Center is humbly serving Dewayne’s family.


Dewayne was born on November 24, 1960, in Douglas, Georgia, a son to Elby Revis, Sr. and Gay Nell (Upton) Kammerude.  He enjoyed life each day and possessed a generous soul along the way.  Dewayne spent his working years as a grapple skidder operation with Wiepert Logging and always enjoyed being in the outdoors working with his friends.  In his free-time, Dewayne always looked forward to a little fishing, especially the salmon fishing trips when possible.  He also liked to hunt and when time allowed, and sitting down at the card table to test his euchre skills with anyone willing to challenge him.  We are going to miss his carpe diem attitude towards life and his quick wit, but we are grateful as well that his earthly health battles are now behind him.  Thank you, Dewayne, for reminding us not to take life too seriously and to remember to enjoy the simple moments when they arrive.  We pray that you find peace now and may the Lord bless and keep you safe in His loving arms until we meet again.

Peggy Anne (Tommy Shelby) Revis, Dubuque, IA,

Chris Revis, Alabama,
