Christopher Lee Bentley Obituary
Christopher Lee Bentley, 45, of Jackson, passed away in Hillsdale at the home of his parents on January 28, 2014, following a courageous six month battle with cancer. He was surrounded by a family who loved him.

Chris was born in Kalamazoo, MI, on August 13, 1968, and was the son of Ray and Carol Bentley. He married Shelly Davis of Jackson on June 18, 2001, and she survives.

Chris graduated from Hillsdale High School in 1986, and a drafting and design program at State Technical Institute and Rehabilitation Center in 1995. He was a member of Ganson Street Baptist Church in Jackson. Chris was a kind and gentle man who especially enjoyed family, camping, traveling, golfing, playing the guitar, and their cat, Buttons.

Besides his parents he is survived by one daughter, Nicole (Josh) Poston, two granddaughters, Ellie and Charleigh Poston of Hillsdale, his grandmother, Irene Rayborn of Hillsdale, a brother Scott (Maryne) Bentley of Monroe, and two nephews in Texas, Josh (Leah) Bentley and Drew Bentley.

Cremation has taken place at his request and a memorial service to celebrate Chris's life is being planned for a later date.
