OBITUARY

Abraham Lincoln Mentes

February 12, 1938January 29, 2021

Passed away on January 29, 2021 at 8:03 pm in Lexington Medical Center, surrounded by Family.

Abraham was predeceased by his parents, siblings Eugene Mentes and Virginia(Mentes) Dickie and his nephew Donald Mentes.

He was a loving father to his son Thomas L. Mentes (Beth) of Irmo,SC and his daughter Cheryl Mentes-Steuer (Ralph) of East Stroudsburg, PA and a Grandfather to Leanna Mentes of Columbia, SC and Jackie Mentes of New York, New York.

Mr. Mentes loved his children and grandchildren with his whole heart. He loved to take very long walks especially the River Walk in Columbia, SC. He had a green thumb and tended to his plants and garden. He would take the shirt off his back for a stranger as he was extremely generous with others but frugal with himself. A very simple man, although very stubborn and strong minded. He was a fighter to the end.

The family wishes to extend a heartfelt thanks to the staff of Lexington Medical Center for their compassionate care of Mr. Mentes and NHC Lexington Nursing Home.

Abe was a nice, caring man. Interesting to be around. I only got to know him for a couple of years as we all resided in our Sr Living Facility. He was always working hard to improve our surroundings with plants and nature. Abe will be missed by many here.

I worked for Abe many years, starting 46 years ago. He was always a very nice, kind person. Never heard him raise his voice. Sending out my thoughts & prayers to all of his family. Nellie
