Bentley Boaz Jefferson 2024-2024

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our sweet baby boy Bentley Boaz Jefferson. He was born and tragically passed on Sunday, May 12, 2024. Bentley’s time here on Earth was brief but his impact was felt deeply.

Even before he graced our world, Bentley was deeply loved. He was a cherished addition to the family of his devoted mother, Taylor Jefferson, and loving father, Tyrese Jefferson. His siblings, Jayleen, Oakley, Kayden Jefferson, and Madison Stoney, already loved him unconditionally and looked forward to a lifetime of memories to be made.

His departure from us is a profound loss that words fail to adequately express. Bentley’s absence is deeply felt, and his presence is sorely missed. His gentle spirit will forever live on in the hearts and minds of those who eagerly anticipated his arrival. We hold onto the belief that we will one day again hold Bentley in our arms, but until then, his memory will be kept alive in the memories we have and the love we continue to carry for him.

Professional services are entrusted to Dugan Funeral Home and Crematory, Inc., Shippensburg.

Memorial Services will be held on Friday, May 17th, 2024 from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. at Overflow Community Church, 642 Lincoln Way W, Chambersburg, PA 17201.

Friends may express online condolences at the funeral home’s website.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in honor of Bentley’s name for “Bentley’s Memorial”. The fund is set up to help with the unforeseen expenses during this challenging time and to commemorate Bentley’s life. Donations can be made online here.

As we mourn the loss of our precious Bentley, we find comfort in the thought that we will one day see him again. His life, although brief, was significant, and his memory will forever be etched in our hearts. We will, with love and sadness, say goodbye for now, our sweet Bentley. Until we meet again, sleep tight in the arms of angels.
