Jorma Andrew Bentley



Early Monday morning, June 9, 1997, we said goodnight to Jorma for the last time in person in this earthly life. We will say goodnight to him in our hearts and prayers from this day forward until we can be with him once again.

We are grateful for the almost twenty years that we could share with Jorma. He had his own unique way of looking at the world. He loved spending time with his brother and sister and extended family. He loved his music, riding his bike, and his dog, Harley. He had his own way of softly sneaking into the hearts of the people that he met with his kind and loving disposition. He has left us with countless treasured memories. Jorma was blessed with a tender heart and will be missed bunches by his family and friends.He was a graduate of Murray High School and attended SLCC.

Jorma battled a brain tumor and related difficulties for the past five years. His example of courage and perseverance without complaint will be remembered by all who knew him.

Jorma's family wishes a special thanks to the countless nurses and doctors at PCMC who cared for him; the Oncology and BMT teams and especially Dr. Carol Bruggers; also, to all of the people who showed Jorma love and support throughout his life.

Donations in his memory can be made to the Utah Chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Jorma is survived by his parents, Dean and Diane Bentley; his brother, Corey; his sister, Maren; his grandparents, Kenneth and Mildred Lofgreen and Bud and LaRue Bentley; his Aunt Dana; many other aunts, uncles, and cousins.

A memorial service will be held Thursday, June 12, 1997, 9 a.m. on the grounds of the Garden Park Ward, 1150 E. Yale Avenue, SLC, Utah. Please bring a blanket. If inclement weather, the service will be moved inside. A private family graveside was held Wednesday, June 11, 1997 at the Murray City Cemetery. Funeral Directors: The Holbrook Mortuary.
