Gerald 'Grandpa Jerry' Bentler, 84

Gerald "Grandpa Jerry" Bentler, 84, of Waite Park, formerly of Clearwater passed away peacefully on Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017, surrounded by his family and close friends.

Mass of Christian burial was held at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 14, at Saint Andrew's Catholic Church, Elk River. Visitation was Monday, Nov. 13, with a prayer vigil at Dares Funeral Service in Elk River. A private family interment will take place in Minnesota State Veteran's Cemetery, Fort Ripley.

Jerry is survived by his beloved wife of 47 years, Yvonne; son, Troy (Donna) Bentler; daughters, Tammy (Brian) Knutson, Teresa (Chris) Agresto, Trista Bentler; and close friends, Rick Goenner and Gary and Deb Stevenson.

Jerry was born on May 6, 1933, in Randall to Merle and William Bentler. He attended Tech High School in St. Cloud until enlisting in the Air Force, where he served our country during the Korean War. On March 7, 1970, he married Yvonne Zwilling, whom he dearly loved. Jerry's entrepreneurial spirit was reflected through his many diverse business endeavors that spanned over many decades. Jerry had a heart of gold and love for children that was clearly visible during his years as a school bus driver for the Annandale School District and later in life as a foster grandparent at Saint Andrew's Catholic School, Elk River. Of all his work, being with the children as a foster grandparent was his most fulfilling job and he loved each student as his own. Jerry lived his life to the fullest and enjoyed time spent with family and friends along with his canine companion, Elvis.
