William Daniel Bentley, 64, of Taylorsville passed away on May 26, 2018 at Carolinas Medical Center with his family by his side.

He is survived by his wife, Rene Bentley; children, Michelle Bentley, Tiffany Derenne, and Jacob Poston; as well as several grandchildren and other family members. He was preceded in death by his son Micheal Bentley.

Danny worked in the furniture industry for over 45 years. He was widely known for his exceptionally hard work ethic and his extraordinary ingenuity.

Danny was a man of strong faith, believing in the saving power of Christ Jesus. He was highly respected in his community and thought of as a man who exemplified integrity. He was a true brother to so many and often put others needs before his own. He also volunteered his time to many Christian organizations.

Danny lived each day with a servant’s heart, expressing love, grace and humility. He is now experiencing God’s eternal love, peace and much more with his Heavenly Father.
