Recommended Posts

Bentley, Jesse Norman

Jesse Norman Bentley departed this life surrounded by his loving family on June 21, 2006 after a courageous battle with lung cancer. He was born in Painsville, Ohio, on January 4, 1940 and was a longtime resident of Arizona. He served honorably in the U.S. Air Force as a young man and then spent the majority of his lifetime working as a heavy duty mechanic. For many years he was actively involved in both the White Mountain #3 Masonic Lodge and White Mountain #8 Order of Eastern Star where he held many distinguished offices, the latest being the Knights of the York Cross of Honour. His passions were hunting, fishing and woodworking but his greatest love of all was his family, for whom he had so much pride and devotion. He is survived by his wife Elaine; daughters Cindy (Jeff) of Hilliard Ohio, Patricia (Richard) of Woodstock Georgia, Joy of Glen Burnie Maryland, Jessica of Glendale; son Jay (Brandi) of Flagstaff; brothers, Jerry Lee Bentley of Globe and Darrel Gene Bentley of Mesa, twelve grandchildren and three great grandchildren. A Memorial Celebration of Jesses life will be held at 1:00 P.M. on Sunday June 25, 2006 at Chapel of the Chimes Mortuary 7924 N. 59th Ave. Glendale, Arizona. Memorial contributions may be given in his honor to Hospice of the Valley 1510 E. Flower Street Phoenix, AZ 85014-5656. Please visit www.mem.com
