Mr. Milton Bentley [Teacher -English]

Mr. Bentley passed away suddenly of a heart attack in November of 1970.

After his son Kent graduated, Mr. Bentley went into counseling full time. He felt it was the most enjoyable job he ever had in education. He had done it all in Minnesota. He started as an English teacher and then a high school principal. That was followed by superintendancys in three small communities.

In 1957, he moved to Claremont with his wife and all 5 children. The reason for the move was that he realized that his children would be ready for college soon and there was nothing near where they were living.

He was survived by his wife Genevieve, who passed away in 1976, and five children.  His sons are; Kent who is a retired mathematics professor, Charles who is a retired attorney and Boyd who is retired from UC Davis where he did genetics research. His daughters are; Sharrie who is a retired auditor for the state of California and Joie who is still working as an RN.
