Southside - Cody Darrell Bentley
God gave us a special angel born Nov, 11, 1976 and allowed everyone to love and enjoy him for 43 more years. Then God called him home for his much needed rest March 29, 2020.
Cody was given to the Lord at birth but then he accepted the Lord as his Savior in 1986. He loved fishing, mowing the lawn, talking with his many friends on and off Facebook, and helping anyone, anytime, in anyway he could almost daily. He graduated from Westbrook Christian in 1996 and studied Computer Science at GSCC and was the most dedicated AU fan.
Honorary pallbearers are Mr. Charles Gill, Judge Tom Wright, Mr. Olen Warren, Mr. Donald Rhodes, Mr. Cread Clifton, Jr., Mr. DJ Stowers and Mr. Jonathan King.
In Heaven awaiting Cody's arrival is his Dad (Bryon Bentley), Brother (Chad Bentley), his Grannies (Miriam Clifton), (Iva Dell Johnson), (Ann Hibles) and (Lucille Bentley) and many other close friends and relatives. Cody stated, "I'll see so many people I've missed-My Daddy & Brother, Horace Merrill, Uncle Roy - lots of people I love so I'm not sad about dying."
Still holding him close to our hearts are family members, Mom, Minanette Warren, Pops, Gray Warren, Step brothers, Olen Warren(Beth), Donald Rhodes(Teresa), Grandfather, Creal Clifton, Sr., Aunt Mary Lynn(Paul) Adams, Aunt Linda Cunningham, Uncle Cliff(Tamela) Clifton, and Aunt Shelia(Tom) Webb. Special nieces, KT and KiKi Rhodes, Ashlyn Warren, nephews, Tyler Warren and Noah Williamson and a very special great niece, Addi Gray Williamson. Three superman cousins, Kyle Clifton, Cam Conroy, and Staver Webb. Many Clifton aunts and cousins loved by Cody.
