Obituary for Bentley Walker

Bentley Doin Walker, son of the late Benjamin and Martha (Nance) Walker, was born September 16, 1935 in Brixey, Missouri, and went home to be with his Lord and Savior September 10, 2017 at his home in Mountain Grove, Missouri. He was 81 years, 11 months, 25 days of age.

Bentley grew up and attended school in Ozark County. He was drafted into the United States Army in 1958 and faithfully served his country until he was honorably discharged in 1960. Bentley continued to serve in the Reserves until July 1964.

Bentley was united in marriage to Inez Bramlet on July 23, 1958 at the Church of Christ of Mountain Grove. Four children were born to this union. Bentley was a mechanic who could fix anything he set his mind to. He was a “jack of all trades” laboring in various career fields throughout his life.

Bentley answered the call to preach the gospel and became an ordained minister with the Free Will Baptist Association on October 29, 1983. Throughout his ministry he served as Pastor at Number One Free Will Baptist, Union Chapel #2 Free Will Baptist, and Glendale Free Will Baptist churches. He also spent many Sundays filling in for numerous churches in the surrounding communities. Bentley had a great burden for the lost and made his calling into the Lord’s ministry his passion in life.

Bentley was a very jolly soul who knew no strangers. He enjoyed talking with friends and neighbors. He loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Bentley also enjoyed taking care of things on the farm, tending to his animals, riding horses, camping, fishing, and roasting hotdogs over a fire. He could often be seen with a cup of coffee in his hand.

Besides his parents, Bentley was preceded in death by one brother, Verl Walker, and four sisters, Ella Gayer, Laura Everson, Esther Richmond, and Opha Nettleton.

He is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Inez Walker of the home, two sons, Ben Walker and wife, Regina, of Mountain Grove and Reggie Walker and wife, Deloris, of Mountain Grove, two daughters, Carol Hopper and husband, Danny, of Norwood and Annette Letsinger of Mountain Grove, seventeen grandchildren, Erica Sartor, Christi Stillwell, Casey Sartor, Kelsey Eastland, Jeremy Hopper, Jessica Maners, Levi Hopper, Chelsea Allen, Dustin Walker, Ashley Walker, Larrisa Saladin, DeOnna Walker, Haylea Walker, Dawn Walker, Zoey Walker, Joshua Walker, and Jinger Walker, thirty-seven great-grandchildren, one brother-in-law, Dale Besson, a special nephew, Doin Walker, and many other relatives and friends who will miss him greatly.
