September 6, 1937 - February 6, 2022
Charles Frank Bentley, "Charlie Frank" was born to parents, Luther M. Bentley and Charlie Maud (Holston) Bentley in Reynolds, Georgia on September 6, 1937. Charles' father later moved his family to St. Peterburg, Florida, where they remained until the passing of his wife, Charlie Maud. Soon thereafter, his father Luther migrated to Milwaukee, Wisconsin with Charles, and his sister Earlene. Charles received his formal education in Reynolds, Georgia and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He worked as a Slitter-Operator and a Machinist. He also enjoyed rehabbing homes. Later in life, Charles became a self- proclaimed (U ber) driver for the residents at his senior apartment complex, Convent Hill. Charles loved watching old western movies (John Wayne), fishing, roller skating, family events, different genres of music, especially Jazz. You would often find him at a jazz concert or at a festival. Charles Frank Bentley was an immensely proud man. His generous nature was fortified with good cheer. His strong sense of pride encouraged him to walk in dignity even though sometimes he was physically in pain. When his illness became more severe, his unwavering courage kept his head held high, self-fulfilled and self-contained. He accepted his years of ill health without complaint. Charles served the Lord Jesus Christ day by day. Continually giving praise and honor to God. He would always say "God has brought me from a mighty long way." Charles's exodus of this life was on Sunday, February 6, 2022, at the age of 84. Preceding him in deaths: parents, Luther and Charlie Maud Bentley; stepmother, Willie Mae Bentley; brothers, Luther Bentley Jr. and Roger Toland; sisters, Earlene Baldwin, Amelia Bentley, and Katrina Bentley. Peacefully sleeping, resting at last, the world's weary toils and troubles are past. In silence he suffered, in patience he bore, till God called him home to suffer no more. He leaves to cherish his memory: sister, Patricia Bentley Morris; brother-in-Law, Clarence Baldwin; stepsons, Carlos and Kevin Altheimer; stepdaughters, Karen Harris and Scarlet Coleman; nieces, Joann Bentley, Tunisa Bentley, Jatonn Gee, Desiree Bentley; nephews, Deonte Russell Baldwin Sr., Luther (Lex) Bentley II, Levardis Bentley, Jamal King, John Gee, and a host of great, great and great great, great nieces and nephews, cousins, family, and loved ones.
