Bentley Edward Page

March 25, 2014 - August 2, 2022

Bentley Edward Page, 8, of Charlottesville, Virginia was born March 25, 2014 and gained his beautiful wings August 2, 2022. 


Bentley brought joy and inspiration to all who were blessed with his presence. Although he has endured more than most in a lifetime – being medically complex – he went by his own rules and lived a longer life than doctors had anticipated. He was a strong boy who had a captivating smile and a presence that drew an audience from across the world that would view him on social media. You couldn’t help but love him. He motivated and inspired others to live better lives. His life carried much purpose. 


He leaves behind mother Renea Christina Melissa Gass, his father Phillip Blair Page, grandparents, uncles, and many nurses and loving family friends who faithfully and lovingly cared for him.


We find peace that he has been made whole and is walking, talking, and playing with other children in the playgrounds of heaven. 


His parents wish to express their most sincere appreciation to all who were involved in his support system. His life was touched by some of the most wonderful people.


“God saw that you were getting tired and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around you and whispered, come to me…”


“Your wings were ready but our hearts were not.” 


You will be forever live on in the spirit of others with remembrance that will never be forgotten. 

A celebration of Bentley’s life will be conducted at 10:00 am on Friday, August 12, 2022, at Tharp Funeral Chapel, Bedford.

Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory, Bedford, is assisting the family.

Renea and Cody, all family, close friends, and medical care team, my heart hurts. Bentley came into my life for a brief time, while living in Roanoke. Even before meeting him as his next nurse, I was drawn to help this little boy and his young momma. When I meet him I understood why. Bentley won my heart. Renea, it was a privilege to care for your little angel and in all my 45 years of nursing this job took the highest calling. He's in the arms of Jesus, running and jumping with his beautiful eyes and thick hair and I can just see him laughing verbally and dancing. Now Renea, when you're ready, you deserve to live life fully with no regrets for you were a superb epitome of a momma to a handicap child. My little Bentley will always have a place in my heart and so many other's. My prayers are with you.

We are so sad at the loss of Bentley. Although we never met him in person, following along on social media made him feel like part of the family. Obviously, there are no words to ease the pain of this great loss, but we certainly pray for God's comfort to be close to you during this sad time.
