Edward Bentz Obituary

Reverend Edward Cleo Bentz, Age 90, passed into the loving arms of his Savior
April 21, 2023, at Opp Health and Rehabilitation in Opp, Alabama. Mr. Bentz was
born in Arkansas and later relocated to Andalusia where he lived with his loving,
late wife, Nancy.

A visitation will be held Wednesday, April 26, 2023, 1:00pm-2:00pm at
Keahey Funeral Home, 206 Stanley Avenue, Andalusia, AL. On Thursday, April 27,
2023, a graveside service will be held at 10:00 am at Harmony Baptist Church
Cemetery, 20932 County Road 70, Andalusia, AL. Reverend Dan Marler will
officiate. His favorite hymn, “Old Time Shouting” will be played.

During his lifetime, Reverend Bentz was always seen with a smile on face no
matter where he was or what he was doing. His sermons were impactful and
always seemed to “Step on your toes” a little bit as he would say or, “that’s how
you know God is talking to you”, or one heard often when asked, “you have a
lesson to learn there,” and we always did. A true man of God, he lived the way he
preached. His one passion besides the Lord, was cheering on and watching girls’

He leaves behind to remember him, his stepson and daughter-in-law, John and
Susan McNeal of Andalusia, and two brothers, Henry Eugene Bentz of Arkansas
and Kenneth Lee Bentz of Queens, New York. He has several grandchildren that
will be mourning his passing as well.

A regular member of River of Life Church, Andalusia, AL, he enjoyed worshipping
the Lord at many places and spreading the Gospel wherever he went.
Keahey Funeral Home is honored to be entrusted with these arrangements.
