Raymond Bentley, 10-10-1962 ~ 11-03-2023
I lost my best friend last Friday. I can't even begin to find the words to describe the feelings that I am currently experiencing. I know what the feelings are, but to put them into words seems to cause a loss of the impact that is felt.
Raymond Lane Bentley, born 1 of 6 children to R.C.& Mattie Bentley in Spearmen Texas, October 10, 1962, passed away at home, where he wanted to be, November 3,2023. He was 61yrs and 24 days old. Raymond liked to Fish & spend time with his Family and Friends. He was always around a campfire listening to music.
The family will have a private memorial at a later date.
He is Survived by his loving wife, Kim Bentley; 2 Sons, Raymond Bentley Jr. (Shantell) and Derrick Spivey; 2 Daughter's, Amy Standing (George) and Tamara Williams (Tracy); 2 sisters, Connie Smith and Carol Lester; 1 Brother, Henry Bentley (Kandie); and several granddaughters, grandsons, and great grand babies.
Raymond is proceeded in death by His Father, R.C. Bentley; Mother, Mattie Valera Massy; 2 Brothers, Thomas Walker Bentley & Ronnie Gene Bentley; 2 nephews, Sheldon Vanbuskirk & Chance Vanbuskirk; and Brother-in-law, Rodney Smith.
We loved unconditionally through both the good and the bad. He was my rock, and I could always lean on him to guide us through all of the trials we had to face. I was blessed in life to have him not only as a husband but also as a best friend. His ability as a father to our children knew no bounds and his caring nature as a grandfather was unparalleled. He cared about those around him and helped all that needed it. He will always be remembered as a dear friend to many people throughout the ages
