September 13th 1967 – October 19th 2019
Dave, 52, is survived by his wife Lupe Bentley, his parents Bill and Shirley Bentley, and his two children Calvin Bentley and Erica Wilson.
Dave owned and operated his own company, Dave’s Fab Shop from his own backyard – the same backyard where he married Lupe in 2001. Dave will always be remembered for being a loving, kind, and generous husband, father and son. Dave always put the needs of his wife and children far ahead of his own. Whether it was rescuing his children from various car troubles all over the valley, or spoiling his wife – he was always there when needed or called upon. An only child of Bill and Shirley, Dave grew up with a love for trucks and airplanes which he carried with him all his life. He filled his home with model airplanes, and his backyard with various truck parts. He was a talented fabricator that showed in all the work he did.
When you remember Dave, no doubt you remember him with a tape measure on his hip, a chew in his lip, and a thirst buster in his hand. Dave was a simple man with a heart bigger then most realized. He will be forever remembered and missed.
We love you Dave.
