Henry’s brother, Lulu’s third husband, and Henry, Jr.’s father. Beverly is a successful door-to-door salesman living in Minneapolis. He is married to Elsa, whom he “adores,” but he has always had feelings for Lulu. After Henry’s death, Beverly and Lulu have a fleeting affair that produces Henry, Jr., but Beverly doesn’t see her again until several years later, when he returns to the reservation to get Henry, Jr. and bring him back to Minnesota. Beverly, however, can’t bear the thought of taking Henry, Jr. away from his brothers, and he never does tell Henry, Jr. he is his father. Beverly and Lulu are married right before Nector burns down Lulu’s house, but he fails to tell her that he is already married to Elsa. Lulu sends Beverly back to Minnesota to divorce Elsa, and she sends her son, Gerry, to make sure he does, but neither Gerry nor Beverly ever come back, and Lulu never sees him again.
