It is so sad to hear about Mr Bentley.He has been fighting for a long time.He is now in the arms of Jesus,with no pain,no suffering.I have fond memories of hanging out in the basement of Mr.Bentzley house with friends .We would be watching shows,playing chess,and can't forget playing bumper pool.He would come down and tell stories ,tell jokes and would even play chess and pool with us for hours.They we're great times .They we're great memories never to be forgotten.He will be truly missed.

You were an incredible husband, father and pop pop. We weren't only husband and wife, but best friends. I was always laughing at your silly jokes and you always made me smile. My heart hurts from losing you, however I know you are happy and pain free now. I miss you terribly. I'll see you up at the great beyond.

My Father In-Law what a man. He raised 2 kids with his first wife Carol (Joseph &Donna). Lost his wife. And then met his second wife Wendy. Wendy came with Greg and Amber and then Stephanie. My Father In-Law treated all 5 kids as if they were all his own. My memories are going over to Jersey on Sunday for dinners, trips to Florida and swimming in his pool. He was always good for adding extra ingredients to a recipe. My favorite memory and one I will never forget. The first couple of months dating Joe he could never get my name right. I was always Jean. Close to my name but not my name. My you Rest In Peace and no longer be in pain. Please watch over all of us and protect. We will all miss you until we meet again.
