John F. Bentley of Fountainville, PA passed away peacefully at Fox Subacute at Warrington. He was 82 years old.
John was raised in the Polish section of Port Richmond and was a 40-year resident of Levittown. He was an avid fan of all Philadelphia sports teams, coached Bristol Township Girls Softball in the 1970s and 80s, and enjoyed fishing and crossword puzzles.
