lbentley.jpgArtimus Lamont Bentley, an up-and-coming actor who was best known for playing Hakeem Campbell on the UPN comedy “Moesha,” died on Jan. 19 in a car accident. He was 31.
The Milwaukee native was in his teens when he moved to Los Angeles with his mother, Loyce, an aspiring singer. Bentley’s knack for making people laugh during his mother’s auditions inspired him to build a show business career of his own.
Bentley first worked in commercials, hawking Starburst candies in television ads and encouraging teen fathers to take responsibility for their offspring in a public service announcement. He then made numerous guest appearances on TV shows, such as “The Client,” “The Sentinel,” “Soul Food,” “Clueless” and “NYPD Blue.” Bentley got his big break in 1996 when he was hired to star opposite R&B singer Brandy on the sitcom “Moesha.” His latest project was the short independent film “Shards.”
Outside of acting, Bentley had an interest in rap music. In recent years, he and his partner Tyson formed the unsigned hip-hop duo, Uprise. Sisters in Style magazine once named Bentley one of the top 20 African-American “hunks” in the entertainment industry. The mayor of Milwaukee also honored him with a “Lamont Bentley Day.”
Early Wednesday morning, Bentley was traveling by himself on the 118 Freeway near Simi Valley, Calif. His Mercedes-Benz exited the highway, ran a stop sign, blew through a chain link fence and rolled down an embankment. Bentley was ejected from the vehicle and into traffic where five cars struck him. Test results showed no drugs or alcohol in his system.

    It is so upseting to see an Afircan American american man trying to do right, and sadly taken away. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. My only wish is that he is in resting peacefully among the many others we have lost.

    I really enjoyed watching this young man on Moesha it’s amazing how u can feel like you know somebody just from watching them on TV. He will be missed and may god hold him in the palm of his hand.

    Another young African-American,not just celebrity, but young man taken away from those who may see him as a role model and someone who could inspire other’s to follow their dreams.
    Too bad the drug or alcohol aspect had to be assesed, instead of just the thought that a hard working young man may have fallen asleep at the wheel. May God strengthen his family as they have just begun to grieve. He know longer needs our prayers, he is now smiling down on us all and praying that we may someday be in the heavenly gardens also. My prayer’s are with his family, both blood relations, his T.V. family and to all of us his devoted fans as we do mourn the loss also.God bless.

    Years ago I remember telling my mom I wanted to meet a famous person and she said, “You will one day.” Recently after that I went to the Circle City Classic. It was my first time going so I was full of excitement. I wanted to see Brandy. I am a huge fan of hers. I seen a car that had “MOESHA” on the side and I looked up and it said “Lamont Bentley” I was soooo excited to see someone so close to Brandy. I screamed out “LAMONT!!!” He looked up and I waved at him and he waved at me too. Then the car stopped so I ran to the car and I stood right next to him. I tapped his shoulder until he looked at me…He looked and I said “Can I have a hug?” Lamont gave me hug and I was sooooooo happy!!!! I also have his autograph. He seemed to be really nice. I couldn’t wait to go home and watch Moesha to say “I met Hakeem!! I met him!!!” And TODAY….The news that I found out is heart breaking. I can’t explain the way I feel. I wish there was something that I could do…but sadly, the thing I want to do, which is turn back the hands of time is IMPOSSIBLE. But there is one thing I can do and that is pray for Lamont’s family, friends, and fans. He absence is definitely going to be hard. But God’s Will must be done and He knows all things….Lamont is now in a place that he would never leave to return to this world…He is in Heaven!! Free from pain, sadness, and heartache. He will never die again. He is where we will be one day…Get God, Know GOD, and with all of your hearts LOVE and TRUST GOD…I will pray for the family, friends, and his other fans…MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL…
    R.I.P.
    LAMONT BENTLEY…u will be missed

    Nobody knows the time nor the hour, only God knows. During this time of bereavement may the family remember the laughs that the share with my brother in christ. Remember the good times that you shared with him. And above all remember that he is in a better place. Did never ask why this happen, cause we should never ask why, just rejoice, because i believe that what lamont would want us to do. May God guide the family, friends and fan during this time of need. Be strong family for his little girls. Your in may prays.

    I send my prayers to his family and friends.I could not believe what i was hearing ,My prayers go out to his entire family and close friends.He payed his dues to this earthly world and know its time for him to spread his wings and fly like a butterly fly. It hurt us all so deeply when we loose a love one and God knows this.We cant stay here forever and it was my brother in christ time to go.So lets never forget his wonderful smile that we all came to love on the Moesha show. God needed another Angel R.I.P LOVE FROM THE GIVENS FAMILY

    it was truely sad to hear about Lamont’s untimely passing. May God be with your family and give you the needed strength to continue life without him.. just know that he will be missed in our hearts as a superior young actor and may some other young black brother take an example of his life and fill theirs’. Don’t take life for granted, for we never know when it will come to a END.

    In the morning I woke up to go to school, and my daddy was on the computer he told me that hakeem from moesha was killed in a car accident.

    This is truly a sad time and he as all the others that have gone on will truly be missed. When I heard about it my heart was sad and I could not believe it, but now I know that it is true, I am even more sad. May God Bless his family and just remember who he was while he was here and know where and who is with now that he is gone.
    No one knows the day nor the hour, just be ready.
    God Bless You!

  23. Danielle

    My condolences and prayers go out to Lamont’s family. Please take comfort by knowing he’s definitely in a better place, sitting right by The Lord. Lamont ‘is’ a beautiful person inside and out.

  24. edith

    this is so sad . memories of him will always be with me. he was a nice young man. didn’t know him personally. but his life spoke for him, the type of person he was.prayers always for his children and his nother.may he rest in peace .

  25. alicia

    This is such a sad thing to see, not only the death of a young man, but the fact that I saw no news coverage of this, just word of mouth. Had this been a white person, we would be hearing about this on every station, I guess people feel that we (African-Americans) are only important if we are breaking the law. Rest in peace my brother!

  26. Tachea

    I believe God has a devine purpose for everything, and he won’t put anything on us we can’t bear, i sincerely pray for his family, and friends, but especially for his children who will be growing up without a father. For this is one of the toughest things they’ll ever had to do, but if God brings you too it,he will see you through it. Rest in peace you will be missed!!

  27. Josh Lee

    Sorry to hear the sad news. But when I think about it may not be so sad, he’s in better place. Resting in the bossom of the Lord. I hope and pray all is well with his family, friends, and loved ones. We never know when we will leave this place, that’s why it’s imperative for us to know and worship the Father God. If you don’t get to know Him. Love to you all.

  28. Brandon Williams

    When I first heard about Moesha, I was excited to see it because Brandy was in it. When I saw the show all of the characters and the actors became favorites of mine. Lamont Bentley was a great actor and protrayed Hakeem very well. I am very saddened of his passing and may he rest in peace. He was a good man and he through his acting was a great role model for all us young males out here today.

  29. Brittany

    i was a very big fan of his role as hakeem on moesha. in my opinon he made the show. he was an awesome actor and was really on his way and will truy be missed. i send my condolences to all of his friends and family. R.I.P.

  30. Lisa N.F.

    You have now entered a realm where other stars have gone. (Merlin Santana, Gregory Hines, Nell Carter,Ray Charles, Esther Rolle, MLK, JFK, RFK,). Rest in peace.

  31. tony brown

  32. Sierra

    Condolescences to the Bentley family, I watch Lamont daily on old re-runs of “The Parkers”, and I’m so sad, may God be with you in this time of sadness, God Bless You

  33. marcy anderson

    i just said a prayer for lamont’s family and will keep them in prayer. it is very sad to hear this happened. i really enjoyed his role in moesha as hakeem and i thought he was good in the wash. i often thought about where he was and what he was up to and then to hear what happened was truly sad. it was a relief however to hear there were no drugs and alcohol in his system, i wondered if he suffered a seizure or something….but anyway we must keep his family and children in my prayers.

  34. Dauntey micheals

    Woa! i cant believe it.

    I just want to say that i was in shock as i was on the web on cnn and i saw something about moesha star killed in car crash…..when i read the article and found out it was hakeem…i was very upset and distraut….how could this happen? My prayers go out to his family both natural and tv..we have lost so many people…..and i just have to pray….so much is happening in this world…but GOD is still in control….
    MAY YOU REST IN PEACE…HAKEEM AND MAY GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOUR FAMILY….ALWAYS

  39. Lyn

    It’s true that sometimes we feel we know celebrities. I looked at Lamont bentley like he was my little brother. His “Hakeem” character was like many young men in my neighborhood. He was funny, warm,smart, a little annoying(smile), but real. Whenever an rerun of “Moesha” comes on my television. I simply can’t watch it. I feel as though I am in actual mourning. I felt the same way when Merlin Santana from “The Steve Harvey Show” was killed. I can now watch Merlin, and appreciate his talent, and one day I will be able to do the same with Lamont. My prayers are with his family and all who knew and loved him. Rest in Peace Mr. Bentley.

  40. Danyell Rodgers

    I wish Lamont’s family all the best and I hope they understand that God makes no mistakes. Keep a smile, for he is in a better place. RIP Lamont!

  41. Edita

    “I met Tupac once at a music industry party,” Lamont recalls. “Although we didn’t talk long, I immediately felt a connection with him that made me think that our paths would again cross someday…” He was right- their paths crossed, they both are in God’s hands… I still can’t believe Lamont is gone… Every time I think ’bout it, it makes me cry, I can’t help it… He was the greatest and so successful, and so young! I adored him- he was sooo cute, handsome and talented… Words can’t express how I feel ’bout him! There was something special about him! You will always stay in my Heart as happy-go-lucky Hakeem Campbell! I love you!! I give my total support and props for your family and friends. R.I.P. baby… Forever and ever will miss U! I believe, God is takin’ a good care of you… And He always will! I fell in love with Lamont from the very first time I saw him on Moesha. I still enjoy every single re-run of it, cuz I’m Moesha fanatic. It makes me shed a tear from time to time… Why did he have to leave?? But I guess, his job here is done… It’s heart breakin’ that you’re gone, Lamont… But the good die young!

  42. Lauren

    I used to watch Moesha all the time and still do to this day. I didn’t find out that Lamont had passed until a couple of hours ago I had just read in a magazine when I read that my heart dropped beacuse just the other night i was watching moesha. but as Lamont rest in a better place it sends me a message to get my life together and to live my life to the fullest because life is not promised to anyone and I hope that Lamonts family, friends, and fans are doing well and know that he is in a better place.

  43. Minerva

    I was a big fan of his. He played his role on Moesha real well and he reminded me of alot of my guy friends. Its sad to hear of his death and how it happened. He’s truly gonna be missed. Rest in peace Lamont.

  44. Wendell Quentin Nikolas Eady

    My respect to the Bentley family & friends. How sad to know such a talented and upcoming star was taken away from us so soon. May he be remembered in our hearts forever…

  45. Andrea

    May God Bless!!
    I loved his role as Hakeem… I was stunned yesterday to read of his death in a magazine. It saddens my heart. May God bring peace to the hearts of his family!

  46. Michon

    I think he was a wonderful actor and I enjoyed seeing him on Moesha. He was the reason why I saw the show. Sadly to say I just found out today that he had died and it is February 10. My heart goes out to his mother and family. God Bless and let him reace in peace. The good always go first.

  47. MARY JAMES

  49. renee

    I am speechless. I really don’t know what to say. I hate to hear that good people die when there are so many people out there doin some messed up things. I respect any african american that I don’t hear about in the news doin stupid things and causin problems. To Lamont family and friends, he seems like he was a very sweet person. I am so sorry for your lost. GOD BLESS YOU ALL. He was truly love by many people I know. R.I.P Lamont Bentley.

  55. Cynthia

    I’m so upset by this loss…..my sister told me that Lamont was gone I was for sure she was joking until I just now looked this up on the internet what makes it so bad is that I didn’t here anything about it on the news or paper. To his family I’m sorry may God continue to give you strength to hold up and courage to move on. He was one of the great ones I even remember him in Tales from the hood and of course Moesha Wow I can’t believe he is gone. RIP LAMONT We love you but God loves you best. Cynt

  56. MISTY

    I ONLY JUST FOUND OUT LAST WEEK ABOUT YOUR DEATH, AND IT REALLY SADDENED ME.bUT THEN I WAS GLAD THAT THERE WASN’T Any drugs or ANYTHING INVOLVED. IT MAY SEEM FUNNY TO SAY THIS BUT IN YOUR DEATH MY RESPECT FOR YOU GREW BECAUSE YOU SHOWED THEM THAT SOME DECENT BLACK ARTIST WHETHER ITS MOVIES OR RAPPING OR SINGING EXIST OUT HEAR TODAY. NOT JUST INVOVLED IN SOME LABEL WAR OR STUPIDITY. i FOUND JOY IN THE FACT THAT YOUR BODY WAS CLEAN OF ANY DRUGS OR ALCOHOL. TO YOUR MOTHER MAME IT APPEARS THAT YOU RAISED A WINNER AND HE WILL BE MISSED.
    R.I.P. MY BROTHER

  57. Desire

    I really enjoyed watching all of Lamont’s movies and all of the shows he had played in. He was a very well respected actor, and it’s sad that he had to depart from us at such a young age. I remeber how I found out, I was watching BET Styles and his name had flashed across the screen of the television myself and my family was very crushed about the whole thing. Everybody needs to come to terms that life is to short to waste we should enjoy it while we still can because you never know when your time may come.
    MAY GOD BLESS HIM AND REST IN PEACE AND MAY GOD BLESS HIS ENTIRE FAMILY AND FRIENDS. HE WILL TRUELY BE MISSED. AND ALSO REMEMBER THAT HE MAY NOT BE HERE IN BODY, BUT HE WILL ALWAYS AND FOREVER BE WITH US IN SPIRIT.
    REST IN PEACE LAMONT
    WE WILL MISS YOU
    ALWAYS AND FOREVER
    DESIREE LA’CHAUN MOSES JAMES

  60. Shamara

    It’s terrible because I only just found out about Lamont Bentley’s passing a few days ago and had to type in a search because I just couldn’t believe it. After reading all the other tributes to him, the shock is gone and sadness has taken it’s place as it is now confirmed that his death is true. I give my heartfelt condolences to Lamont’s family and want them to remember the blessing of him being their presence, no matter how short the time…. know that you all will meet again. I would also like for those reading these tributes to him to realize that life is short but it’s what you make of it that makes a world of difference just like Lamont having the impact he did on all of his fans. May you rest in peace, Lamont. You will ALWAYS be remembered.

  61. lisa

  66. emily hunter

    Oh God. What! Except that I heard this on the news, I still can’t believe this about Hakeem. Hakeem is gone…and his demise..so traumatic. What happened…how could this happen…were there any precursors to this very tragic end of his life? My God, what’s going on? Was there a malfunction with his vehicle, family problems, emotional upset, what?
    My sincere condolence/sympathy goes out to your family, friends and fans all over the world. Hakeem (Keemi), you will be missed, brother. Rest in Peace.
    “Black Butterfly, sail across the blue waters, tell your sons and your daughters, what the struggle brings.” (sig: Denise Williams).
    Hakeem, Rest in Peace. Luv always, one of your many fans,

    To The Family, Friends and Fans of Lamont Bentley:
    It is my prayer that your hearts will be comforted and the peace of God that passeth all understanding will guide your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. It is my prayer that Lamont accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. It is also my prayer that if you are a reader of this message and have not accepted Jesus that you will do so. For He(Jesus) is the key to spending enternity in heaven. It doesn’t matter how good you are because the Bible says “all of our righteousness is as filthy rags”. John 3:16 states “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whoso ever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life”. How do you have ever lasting life believe…Roman 10:9-10 says: “That if you confess with your mought Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved. For it is with you heart that you believe and are jsutified and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.”
    Salvation is free. It is a matter of choosing and believing. Choose you this day whom you will serve. I pray your choice is Jesus.

  70. Joycelyn "Redd" Peeples

    He was a real good actor and very cute! I was shocked when I heard that he died in a car accident. I couldn’t believe it. I felt like my heart had jumped out of my chest. However, he will be missed. It’s kinda strange when I watched the Hammer movie, “Too Legit.” And he died in that one… now it’s like… he’s gone forreal. I still can’t believe it, but I wish all luck to his family and his two daughters. Lamont Bentley, may you always R.I.P. Loovveee Youuu….

  71. Myrna

    I am very sadden to just discover that lamont had recently died. I was so shocked to know that one so young and talented has been taken from us so soon.
    However, I am glad that he was not tested positive for any form of drugs, brother rest in peace until we meet in that sweet bye and bye.
    God bless and keep your family also may they find strenght and comfort in the lord our god.

  72. Falone

    My sincere condolences to the fam of lamont, he will definitely be missed. I’m hoping that his mom is doing okay. I know how it is to lose someone so close in your life. May the lord be with his family. He is in a better place and no harm shall come toward him. It’s hard for me to come to grips with death because its the same day my mom passed away, so I will not forget him as the years go by. I will miss him like as brother.
    RIP, LB

    I would like to say you will be missed dearly. I know in spirit you are receiving and reading these e-mails. I think you had alot of talent, insight, and a vision to never give up on your dream to get your main role in a film. I admire your drive, motivation, dedication, and high self esteem. For the record, I think your performance as Crazy K was exceptional, unique, well portrayed, and an inspiration to your character and personality. I love this film and watch it every opportunity I get. Rest in peace Lamont. George.

  85. Robert Parris

    I was not sure if it was true or not. Last night my wife and I were looking at him in a movie, and she said she hoped it was not true. RIP brother.

  86. Lisa

    Do not follow a path to where it may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. The Milwaukee kid did just that. No, Hakeem I have no food to give you, however, Lamont,I know you and God are having a supper that is truly a feast. Whatch out for those of us whom haven’t yet found our way. This is the reason why you had to leave so soon. The masses needed you. RIP.

  87. Nate

    You will be missed but remembered.This is a sad time for a actor who was funny and hularious.Rest in peace man.

  100. Jillian

    I didn’t know him. And from watching him on TV – I was really only getting to know a character. But from seeing interviews and hearing his friends and coworkers talk about him – i got the idea that he was loyal, intelligent, determined, and funny. That he was kind and sensitive to those around him. That his untimely death was unfair and that he lived each day to the fullest.
    To his family and friends, It appeared to me as though he would have lived by this quote,
    “Do not fear death so much, but rather the inadequate life.”
    His ability to make people laugh, his talent, his larger than life personality, will be missed greatly.
    ***Jillian

  101. Yvonda, Texas

    The day of dawn rest on the soul of our brother, tho
    The tears of pain flow from our hearts,
    The Lord knows and loved him better, and
    The Joy of tomorrow will triumph,
    For a beautiful soul as been placed in the heavens,
    Victory, Victory the Angels cry,
    Lamont has come.
    Be happy my brother, you left joy hear on earth.

  102. Chassatty

    Well i never met him or anything, but i still feel horrible about the incident. I couldn’t believe it when my dad told me. I almost started to cry. Poor Hakeem, but when the Lord calls 4 u ,u gotta pick up the phone. U gotta think of it like this Lamont did his duties here on earth and The LORD needs him more. Now he’s in the heavenly skies and he doesn’t have 2 suffer anymore.

  103. Bj Britton

  104. LaToddra DeVare

    First and formost to Lamont’s family he was a very loving, kind hearted young man. He was loved by many, and respected by even more. I send a prayer up for Lamont and his family eversince I found out about what had happened. So to his family I want to say, keep your head up, be strong, smile, and always remeber God does everything for a reason. Don’t question it.

  105. TAHIRIH

  106. tate

    i couln’t believe it when i read about his death.he was one of the most talented actors and i had a major crush on him. my condolences to his family.
    may his soul rest in peace

  107. ms. granger

    Hakeem, man I cant believe you are gone either, I just found out you had died in a car accident, August 24 I was in a bad accident, but I still have my life, I really wish I could say the same for you, I never knew you but I thought you was a fine looking young men, & from all that I have heard I really wish I could have met you, I truly missed a treat. Im sure in the lives of your family it wont be the same because it sounds like you brought so much joy. I have no clue what your reltionship was with God, but I hope that you are singing with the Angels come judgement day, I dont have a clue where I am going when I die, but if I make it to heaven I hope to see you because you owe me an autograph. Im not going to sit here and lie and say I am praying for your family, because I see no need to, because your family is strong enough, as long as they have God they will have the strength, its like I tell my friends, our mission was to come here and die; and there is nothing we can do about it,now dont get me wrong I hate to lose a love one just lie anyone else, but its a cycle; the cycle of life. I would like to say this to his family, you all were blessed for thirty one years with one of Gods children, he brought happiness and joy to your life, so just continue to thank the Lord for that. I am a honest 23 year old who has a serious problem and that is I holds nothing back, so Im saying to you as his family you were blessed longer than a lot of families, none of us know our time span, and as fast as God and Satan is moving remembner to get that kiss & hug everyday from your loved ones, because you never know if when they go to sleep they will open their eyes agin or in this case when they go out they may never return. Mr. Bentley is resting in peace, and Im sure that what he wants for his family to be in peace about his death, so the next time you feel you miss him and this is to the family,fans and friends thank about how much joy he brought to your life through the screen, and through real life.
    God Bless
    Roese are red
    violets are blue
    trust and God and
    never forget Mr. Bentley
    may be in peace but he still
    loves you and to his two survivng kids
    I know your daddy sends nothing but hugs and
    kisses:})
    Signed
    A real fan maybe to real, I have missed you and still will but not becasue im sad but becasue I know that the reruns of Moesha are missing the living star in real life, but I will celebrate his days here. I appreciate you Mr. Bentley from the heart, now sleep for now and awake again on judgmentg day, be strong family he is okay.
    Everyday we live our lives but this is to everyone who reads my posting.
    Do you want God for his blessings or do you want God because you love him, basically are you pimping God or praising God. Look at it like this nothing in this world is worth going to hell for. Please let that marinate, because none of us know when its judgement day.

  108. Tamra

    I can not believe this young man is gone, I am very,very shocked as well as sorry to hear of Lamonts passing. I still after reading of him passing can’t believe it. I ask that god keep his family and continue to help them through their loss…….

    When someone dies another life is born. Thank you for blessing the world with another life that will hopefully follow a legacy that you have created. Rest in peace with the angels and our Maker, Creator, and Father. God bless your soul.

  111. Jarvis Robinson

    he was and still the one the best actors and rappers in the world. he will be missed. my prayers go out to his family and friends.

  112. Diondra

    It’s hard to let go, I was just thinkin to my self. I really liked the role he played on Moesha, I was so happy, I thought nothing could go wrong, until I heard what happened. Just today I said to my self, maybe it was just a misunderstanding but I found out that what I thought I was imagining was true. As I wrote this I cry, but he’s in a better place.
    To Hakeem as I will always remember him, rest in peace and have a nice trip home to the Lord.

  113. desmond

    I just cant believe he’s gone whenever I saw him in anything he always made me laugh you know.

    I really hated to hear Mr. Bentley died. I really couldn’t and didn’t want to believe it. I thought he was a very good looking young man. My prayers go out to his family. I mean when I found about it I didn’t want to believe it at all because he was one of my favorite characters on Moesha. It was really sad news to me. Rest In Peace Mr.Bentley. May god bless you and keep you!

  117. Ke'Un

    I just dont know. I just found outlike last week and it is March 31, 2005. I was watching the NAACP image awards the other day and they did a tribut to everyone that we’ve lost this year and it took me away. I had to do some research on the computer to verify that it was Hakeem. It really broke my heart to hear that he passed, but I know that he is in a better place.God Bless to the family of Lamount Bentley

  119. Nikki

    I just found out about the death of Lamont Bently just a day before Easter. I was so shocked. I thought that it was just a rumor so I looked it up on the internet. When I found out it was true I was devastated. I never knew him personally I just knew him as “Hakeem” from Moesha, I grew up watching his role on T.V. so it was like I knew him for real. My heart and best wishes go out to his family and all his other fans and I pray that he will rest in eternal peace forever.

  120. melody loyd

    It’s sad that as I look at all the young people we lost,and we are bond to loose even more .I was watching the naacp awards andit was paying tribute to all we have lost this year.And I was saddened.

  128. Tashae

    I am deeply sadden for the lost of Lamont Bentley. I had no ideal he died until a week later after a rerun of moesha went off. When my t.v screen read “In loving memory of Lamont Bentley,” my heart literrally dropped.It was hard hearing about his passing knowing that I grew up watching him on television and I am only 14 now. My heart goes out to his two daughters because I know how it is to not have a father or to grow up without one. My condolences goes out to his family he will be truly missed.

  129. Von

    U were a great actor– you had a special gift of making people laugh—— R.I.P you will always be remembered in all of our hearts

  131. yvette mcalister

    Lamont will be really missed. I felt like he was a real friend to me over the years. May God be with his family and help them to stay strong.

  132. Rashida Watson

    IF I KNEW
    If I knew it would be the last time
    That I’d see you fall asleep,
    I would tuck you in more tightly
    and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.
    If I knew it would be the last time
    that I see you walk out the door,
    I would give you a hug and kiss
    and call you back for one more.
    If I knew it would be the last time
    I’d hear your voice lifted up in praise,
    I would video tape each action and word,
    so I could play them back day after day.
    If I knew it would be the last time,
    I could spare an extra minute
    to stop and say “I love you,”
    instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.
    If I knew it would be the last time
    I would be there to share your day,
    Well I’m sure you’ll have so many more,
    so I can let just this one slip away.
    For surely there’s always tomorrow
    to make up for an oversight,
    and we always get a second chance
    to make everything just right.
    There will always be another day
    to say “I love you,”
    And certainly there’s another chance
    to say our “Anything I can do?”
    But just in case I might be wrong,
    and today is all I get,
    I’d like to say how much I love you
    and I hope we never forget.
    Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
    young or old alike,
    And today may be the last chance
    you get to hold your loved one tight.
    So if you’re waiting for tomorrow,
    why not do it today?
    For if tomorrow never comes,
    you’ll surely regret the day,
    That you didn’t take that extra time
    for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
    and you were too busy to grant someone,
    what turned out to be their one last wish.
    So hold your loved ones close today,
    and whisper in their ear,
    Tell them how much you love them
    and that you’ll always hold them dear.
    Take time to say “I’m sorry,”
    “Please forgive me,” “Thank you,” or “It’s okay.”
    And if tomorrow never comes,
    you’ll have no regrets about today.

  133. Ebony

    I wanna first say that yes Lamont aka Hakeem was a cutie. He was a good actor. My prayers go out to his mother, Artesia, Brazil and the rest of his family and friends.

    He can still hear the songs, he can still see the lights, he can still feel your love on cold wintery nights, he still shares your hope and all of your cares, hell even remind you to please say your prayers.he wants you to know you still make him proud, you stand head and shoulders above all the crowd, he says, keep trying each moment to stay in his grace, he left here before you to help set your place. we should all be thankful today, he’s still close beside us in new special way. So don’t please be happ and don’t shed a tear, cause he’ll this christmas with jesus this year.

  156. Maryann

    I can’t believe Lamont is actually dead. This really makes me sad. I can’t believe I am barely finding out today. Goes to show how well the media keeps up with these things…
    Lamont had to be one of my favorite actors. He played such a great roll as Hakeem on Moesha back in the day. He was so funny. This is such a shock that he is dead. You wouldn’t think that he would die at such a young age. It makes you think about what is important. I am so sorry for his family, friends, and us, the fans…
    Lamont Bentley will always be missed by us.

  157. Estelle H.

    I am really shocked to have heard that Lamont Bentley passed away back in January of this year. I agree that as popular as he was, not enough was done to celebrate his accomplishments and memory. I will always cherish the laughter he brought into my life on his role on Moesha. Personally, I believe he was the star of the show and every week I tuned in to see Lamont.

  158. Booda

    To the family of Lamont i am very sorry that you had to go through so much pain of a love one. I know how it fells. I lost many people that I love including someone like a boyfriend of shooting crime. So i am very sorry. The felling a pain of your love one will never leave. But you’ll know he is in a very special and safe place, and he wouldn’t want you to hurt any more.
    Love, booda

    It is truly heartbreaking to hear of a death. My prayers are with the family of Lamont. He seemed to have such a stong character. He will definately be missed. Most importantly, he is with our Heavenly Father. May you Rest In Peace Lamont

  160. Lorraine Gershun

    I was Lamont’s 8th grade English teacher and he was one of my all time favorite students. I love watching reruns of Moesha with my daughter and telling her what he was like in class. He made me laugh then as he has made me laugh since. I did not hear of his death until today and am very saddened by it. So is my daughter. My deepest condolences to his family for their loss.

  161. N. Chance

    I couldn’t believe when I heard. It’s been four months since I heard (February) and I’m still in shock. I can’t believe that I saw absolutely no news coverage on it. Such a shame.I was at the hair dresser in February, a month after he died and happened to open some black magazine and by chance I saw his picture, as usual a big smile came on my face,now excited to read something about such a handsome talented funny, young man. Only to have that smile wiped off seconds later, after reading. I have tears in my eyes when i think of it and I wish his family and friends all the best. Stay strong guys, he’s smiling down on you, watching over you in a better, brighter, happier place. Love Always.

  162. K oldham

    RIP lamont I found out at school one day and it was so sad i couldnt believe it i know how it feels to lose someone close so i will be praying for his friend and family and his two children

    Lamont when I heard you had died I could’bt believe it. You will always have a place with in me as Hakeem Campbell. My favorite episode of MOESHA was at the end when Hakeem had started to like Mo as more than a friend he really mad me believe that it was real he really did put effort into what he did. R.I.P Lamont U are missed.

I love dearly and I will always will. R.I.P-See you in heaven. You are my hero. God Bless YOU!!!

    I just recently found out about the tragic death of Artimus “Lamont” Bentley. I was so devasted to here about the car accident this past January(2005),that took his life at such a young age. I’ve been a fan of his for years.From South Central to Tales From The Hood to Moesha, etc. I have always appreciated and admired his work. Lamont was a great inspiration and role model I feel for young people everywhere. I think the entertainment industry has truly lost one of it’s brightest and rising stars. I did not know him personally, but I will still truly miss him, and all that he was. My heart truly goes out to his family and friends. I pray that GOD will keep you strong and in good FAITH during this tragic time.God Bless, Lamont’s biggest fan, LaNaya H.

  190. carlette-ak

    May God have mercy on his soul. Lamont reached a lot of young people all over the world. One of the reasons why I enjoyed watching the show with my lovely daughter was to see Hakeem (Lamont). He was a positive role model for young people. May God grant strength to his family, former cast members, and friends.

  191. Keviana Wilson

    Lamont Bently was like a male role-model to me,(since Klay was never there for me when I needed him). So I would tune in for advice. Since Hakeem(Lamont) never had a father, I felt like I had much in common with the character. MAY YOU REST IN PEACE.

  192. Amara

    Lamont Bentley may his soul rest in eternal peace, as he was a great role model . I loved him in the episodes of moesha, he was a great actor. H e will me missed greatly .

And when I got up from sleeping in the morning I went 2 eat breakfast and whenI looked on the news I saw that Lamont had past and I broke into tears. I loved him so much I wanted to me him so badly I waited 2 see if they had free tickets 2 go see your favorite celeberity. I was always hoping that the tickets would be to go see him.

    The first time I saw Lamont, was on a episode of Moesha, and from then on I was hooked. I don’t know Lamont personally, but what I do know that he was a very talented indivdual. He will not be forgotten. God had a purpose when he brang Lamont onto the earth, which is fulfilled, now God has called him to relax and rest in peace. To his family my heart goes out to you all, and I ask you to all remember the love he shared with you, and also remember he is now your angel guiding you.

  200. Rebecca

    I know that Lamont Bentley will be missed all over the world, and especially from me and all the cast of Moesha. It is very sad how he died, and i send my deepest anger to the five drivers, that couldnt hit the brakes, that struck Lamont.

    I JUST FOUND OUT NOW DAT HE DIED…
    I CANT BELIEVE IT!!
    HE WAS SO FUNNY….
    I USED 2 WATCH MOESHA FROM DAY…AND I’M JUST SO SHOCKED AT THE MOMENT
    Lamont Bentley a.k.a Hakeem R.I.P..

  206. mimi

    I too just heard of the young brotha’s passing. his brother is also an actor, and i pray for comfort and understanding to his family and friends. but let’s not forget that accidents don’t exsist. . . it was his time to leave and he left a wealth of accomplishments behind. note* live life now, ’cause tommorrow ‘aint promised.

  207. Ericka Taylor

    I really enjoyed watching Hakeem on Moesha. He was really an intelligent man. He had his ways of showing how he felt about everything. i really am going to miss you and I hope you are having a joyful time up there in heaven with Jesus, because I know you were put here on Earth to make everyone laugh, so I know you are up there making everybody laugh too!

  208. Sheeda

    I just found out yesterday from my mother, of all people. Now I’m questioning how much publicity or news briefing, if any, was given to inform his fans. I watched him every Monday on Moesha, and was such of a huge fan that I would request Monday’s off from work. Besides being a fan of the show, I truly liked Lamont Bentley — Hakeem Campbell — and still do. His life in the hereafter is awarded according to his deeds, and I just hope that all is good while I leave my mark regarding his memory.

  209. Drina

    That’s really sad to see the good die so young. He was an good actor and now he is living were everbody want’s to be some day in life (HEAVEN). He’s watching over us to see who is going to go down the same good road as he did. He still is in my heart and so is these people….DJ Screw, Aaliyah, Ez E, Tupac, Biggie, Fat Pat, Left Eye, Solija Slim, Jam Master J, Luther Vandross, And Rosa Parks R.I.P.

  210. shawn

    i knew bently from moesha tv show….i love the way he act….he realy have the talent. i cant still belive he’s dead. i miss so much bently.

I will continue to pray for Lamont’s family, friends and fans. Rest In Peace Lamont. you are free from worries and pain.

  215. Emanuel

    I was on the internet when I wanted to know about Lamont Bentley and his biography. When I looked at the screen and it said October 25 1973 – January 18 2005. I was so shocked and heart inside when I saw that he died in a car crash. My cousin had died in a car crash in April and god knows how I suffered and I am still suffering. When Lamont aka Hakeem had suffered through the same trama. I wish I had a time machine and went back before he crashed his car to where he was and stop and alert him not to drive your car today. I am still in shock that he was dead and I hope his family and friends good luck and may god always be with you. I wish he was still alive, becuaseif he was he would had done many different things in life that he would had been remeberd by many people. I wish it would had said October 25 1973 – October 25 2073. But that couldn’t happen and I wish it could happen. RIP and god bless Lamont Bentley. XXXXXXXX! and may god be with Bentley’s family and relatives.
    RIP brother Lamont
    Truly was your fan! Emanuel

    To The Family of the late great Mr. Lamont Bently
    There are no words that could ease the pain of a love one. But God in his infinite wisdom knows what’s best for us all. It is coming up on a year of our beloved brother being gone. And I know the pain is still there. This is a time to lean towards one another and remember all the joy that he brought to many lives around the world. Not only on television but I am quite sure in his personal life with close family and friends. To the family and friends of Mr. Lamont Bently and his beloved fans when times gets rough as they will remember that everytime his beloved name is mention he is never gone but his loving spirit and warm memories shall always keep him alive. May God continue to bless you all.
    R.I.P

    It’s been nearly a year since the death of this young brother and I just recently learned of it. I am saddened by this news of such a tragic death. My prayers will be with the family and friends of this jewel as the anniversary of his “homegoing” draws near. I am so grateful to God that no alcohol or drugs were found in his system…Be strong family…for he is in a far better place than we are…God bless!

  219. Portia Bush

    I remember getting home from school at 3:30 and my brother’s and I would alwayz sit in front of the TV while Moesha was blasting and try to do our homework. My mama would always yell and say you can’t do homework and watch t.v. at the same time, but somehow she would still let us watch Moesha. i just loved Hahkeem, he reminded me of a lot of the dudes from my block. Whenever they came to our house they never knocked on the door when they came in either. He was soooooooooooo cute that it’s unreal. RIP LAMONT BENTLEY YOU WILL TRULY BE MISSED

  220. J Brown

  232. Lady T

    I was looking in a magazine and was reading about all the great african american people we have lost this 2005 year. I becamed puzzled about who Lamont Bentely was I remember sayng he has the same name as my brother and I wonder if he realted to in Bentley’s in Ohio. My family was trying to tell me what show Lamont played on and what movie’s he had been in. but, it still had not ringed a bell for me. Not until today. To his family and his friends I am truely sadden that you have lost an ANGEL, GOD took him because he needed him. I beleive that when we are born that God has a master plan for our futher maped out for us and when we have done all that he has planed for us to do he brings us to our new Heavenly home. Where we don’t have to worry about anything that all debts are paid in full. just rejoice, because I believe that even though God has taken your Son, your Grandson, your Nephew, your Brother,your Father, your Uncle, your Cousin, your Best Friend he is singing dance all threw the gates of haven. that he’s shouting no more trouble/worrie over here HALALUJA…………..To your family always keep God First.Stay Prayerful Love each other as if was your last day together. every nite before you close your eye no matter what your day is like tell each other that you love them. to his little girls when you think about him just raise ypur head to God and pray your father is listening to you. Lamont Bentley you r Missed………….. deeply………………….resting peacefully among the many others we have lost.
    BE BLESSED

  233. nessa

    Moesha is one of my favorite shows and then last night when they were showing all the people we had lost in the year 2005 i realized that you were in it. At first I couldn’t believe it because no one who is so determined and so young should not loose their life. I hope that your family is blessed with prayers and wishes and hope that you rest in peace.You are greatly and deeply missed by everyone, even people who don’t know you.

  234. Golden

    God…on God know’s why. There is purpose in everything HE does. May God bless Lamont’s babies…Girls your daddy was loved by millions and will be missed. Be strong.

  235. Priscilla

    I really cant believe it… I was watching moesha and never really thought about loosing you. I always loved your charecter, then when i watched BET and saw the people we lost in ’05 i really did not believe it was you. I went to google to look your name up and hope that it was a lie, but sadly it wasnt. You will be missed Lamont… I know you are in good hands in Heaven…RIP

  236. LaShay

    It’s January 2, 2006 and I just found out today about this broher’s death. While watching a “re-cap” show for celebrities lost during 2005 on BET, his face along with his name appeared befor me, so I looked him up on internet… “Lamont, you made us Milwaukeans proud to call you friend.” Rip, and much healing to your family and friends. ~ Amber

  250. Ashley

    I too just found out Lamont had passed. I knew he had been off the scene for a while but I thought he was taking time off to be with family or was working on a secret project. It is hard to think about. RIP

  253. Nicole

    To the Bentley family: Lamont was and will continue to be a great role model for the male youth of today. He was here for a reason, and god called him home. Thank you for sharing him with the world. May god be with his children and loved ones.–Nicole

  254. Lyndale

    Its sad to find out one of our young black talented actors has been taken away. I watched Moesha for years, and his character Hakeem was a big reason why the show was so funny. I remember when he was Krazy K in the movie “Tales from the Hood.” He will be missed, Rest In Peace Lamount. We got mad love for you.

  255. Tabitha

    He was indeed a funny guy. His laugh is what I remember most while thinking back on his character on Moesha. His laugh was filled with joy. If we can remember that the Joy of the Lord is our strenght then we can feel peace in our hearts because we know that his life and death was written in God’s plan and his will. Develop a personal relationship with God and get a glimpse at your life and get to know some highlights of God’s plan for your life. No eyes have seen or heard about what God has plan for their life. Tap in he will show you some visual highlights that will help you press on through your trials and tribulations God will show himself strong because he loves to put his word to work but for his glory not your pride.

  256. Sanders

    Rejoice for Lamont for he was put here to do what he did which was entertain, love, and be loved. God makes no mistakes. For his family, just as Smokie Norful says in his song, “You may not hear God’s voice, but “always” trust his plan.”

  257. Shelley

    I just found out today when i was watching BET ‘Revisiting 2005′ ..that “Hakeem” had past away. I guess it was so hecka for me last year i did not get a chance to notice. I just want to tell his family that he was a great actor and i will keep them in my prayers.

  258. Linda Demetria Hervey

    I will always love you from my heart. I’ve always watched you on Moesha. I always wanted you two to get together. On one show you did. You will FOREVER be missed. God makes no mistakes, and I know the angles are smiling and laughing with you. R.I.P Lamont Bentley

  259. Marie

    I just want to say how sorry I am to hear of your passing.God bless you and your family.You we’re one of the greatest,I enjoyed all of your work.You will surely be missed.
    R.I.P.
    Lamont

  260. Trisha Alegria

    I am so sorry to hear about his passing even a year later people are still posting, so I hope this may give the family some comfort because you never forget those who you’ve temporarily lost in life, it’s only the understanding that comes from time & faith that helps it get any better.
    May God bless your soul and those who loved you – you were but one in millions but had so mattered as an individual–in God’s eyes and mine, as we are all meant–celebrity or not.
    Teach Love, Tolerance, & Peace
    God=Love / Love=God

  261. Breanna Parris

    I never met Lamont, but i had a fit when he died!
    Because i fell in love with his character on Moesha. He was always jokeing, and laughing, but then again he was serious! So here is a poem I wrote when I found out about his dealth!:
    DEALTH!
    To some dealth is happy,
    To others dealth is sad.
    To me dealth is sad.
    Either if loose someone you know,
    Or some one you’ve never met,
    But fell in love with!
    When you loose someone you know,
    It’s sad cuz you have memories.
    Some are good,
    And some are not so good.
    But they’re still memories,
    Memories you had with that person!
    When you loose someone you’ve never met,
    It’s sad cuz you fell in love with them.
    You fell in love with their character.
    Either if you watch them on t.v.,
    Or read about them in a magazine,
    You will still miss them!
    When someone dies,
    No matter if you know them,
    Or if you never met them.
    It’s weird,
    Cuz one day they’re there,
    Then the next day they’re gone!
    the end r.i.p. lamont bentley

  262. Kathy

    I too just found out that Hakeem was killed. I would like to extend my condolences to his loved ones. He was wonderful to watch on Moesha. God Bless the family.

  263. Sammy

    Why do You all stress AFRICAN AMERICAN LOST? WHY NOT just plain AMERICAN who dreamed and achieved his dreams and was on his way to reaching the stars and his life ended tragically. Why cant we all be Americans, You are here in AMERICA not AFRICA, bE PROUD OF Your heritage but You are AMERICAN, start thinking of Yourselves as AMERICANS.. This American theory was just reaffimed by AWARD WINNING AMERICAN ACTOR MORGAN FREEMAN. Thanks, RIP LAMONT

  264. nathalie gibson

    It is one year after his death and I just found out he is gone.I am so sad,my thoughts and prayers go out to Lamont’s family.He will surely be missed.

  266. Spanish Diva

    Hi everyone, I’m a french fan from the West Indies. I was surfing on the net when I read this morning that Merlin Santana from the Steeve Harvey Show was dead and that Lamont,this awesome, handsome and funny actor died last year.
    No words can explain how I feel right now. What the hell is going on ? why the rising african american actors have to die such an awful way ?
    Anyway !
    I was impressed by the way he brought his character to life in Moesha and no doubt he’ll miss us all. I love you and I’ll miss you my dear friend…..

  267. Lucretia

    I used to watch moesha like almost every day you see lamont the one all ways ready to eat at the micheals. He played a funny and amuseing character.Iloved him so much,he was my favorite charcter,and to just know that he died.thats sooooooooooooo sad,I hope he’s in a better place and let god take care of his soul.
    love Lucretia Mabry

  268. Tinuke Lawal

    I know its a bit late but still i just cant believe he is actually gone as i sit hear writing this tears fall from my eyes not just for lamont but for all those we have lost on this long journey he was a role model and i truely miss him i can only pray that we can meet some day along with tupac and the rest of them and i pray taht i and many others do not leave before out time. SLEEP PEACEFULLY R.I.P LAMONT i will miss you.

  269. missy m

    i am so sorry to hear about lamont! i loved him on moesha. my brother died at about the same age in the same way – losing control of his car – so i know what a horrible shock it is to his family.
    my thoughts are with them.

  270. Shana

    wow, I didn’t even know that Hakeem had died. I will miss him dearly. Like so many fans, I too fell in love with the charater Hakeem. He was a great actor and will me missed my many.
    I didn’t even know that he had died. The news didn’t even notify us.
    It’s a dark day for me today. This is the first I’m hearing of his death.
    R.I.P. My brother.
    May God Bless Your Soul.
    We love you.

  271. Ugo

    omg!!!!!!!! may your soul rest in peace, boy. You were hilarious on the show and will remain hilarious up there. We all know you went to heaven. That’s a fact. I’m crushed for real. You were too young to die. What happened?!?!?!?! I know it wasn’t your choice to leave, it was Gods and I know He has his reasons, but sometimes it pisses me off when I know his reasons, but I know He has good intentions. Lamont, r.i.p, I’ll see you in another life. Never think you will not be missed. I love like you was my dawg.

  272. danielle

It’s true, the good die young. You will be missed and I enjoyed seeing what you had accomplished at such a young age.

  282. Jessica

    Lamont Bentley was a very good actor and role model.When I found out Lamont died I was in total shock.I couldn’t believe what I had just heard.I kept tellin my friend that she was lying until I saw it in a magazine.I would have never thought that Hakeem Campbell from Moesha would be dead.I hope his family and friends think of all the good times they had with him instead of just the one time where he left us. R.I.P

    IT IS A SADD THING TO LOOSE ANOTHER BROTHER. BUT THATS HOW THE WORLD TURNS ITS NOT ONLY IN OUR LIVES BUT IN OUR STARS LIVES TOO. I LOST MY ONLY BROTHER MAY5,2004 TO THE HANDS OF HIS SO CALLED BEST FRIENDS WHOM HE LOVED SO MUCH THEY MURDERED HIM HE WAS 25YEARS OF AGE LOVELY.HE WAS MY MOMS ONLY SON AND YOUNGEST OF 3 OF US.HE WAS A WORKING DAD AND GREAT TO BE AROUND.IT WAS NOT GANG RELATED OR DRUG RELATEDED.IT WAS ABOUT JEALOUSY AND ENVY.MAY LAMONT REST IN PEACE.

  286. ISIAH GINES

    I loved this show because it was good for young people doing something positive in their life. I am sad for this young bright star and his family because he was just beginning to shine. I’m just glad that he was drugs and alcohol free because you know how people are in the real world.

  287. Latasha

    I thoroughly enjoyed watching the show and it was hard to beleive that Lamont Bentley had passed but as we all know it was just his time and God was ready for him even though we weren’t ready for him to leave. I just ask that God continues to bless his family and keep them because it is an everyday struggle to endure the lost of a loved one but God can and will see you through.

  288. DONNA

    Well, I must say that I am saddened by this information. My father passed away
    January 15, 2005 and that probably explains why I did not know that LaMont passed.
    I always loved his warm smile and when he and Moesha started dating, those were the best shows, in my opinion.
    To his Mother and children, I hope your healing process is in the hands of GOD because mine is with the loss of my Father.
    In, Christ’s Love.

  289. Lisa

    I am so shocked to see this, and the thing about it is I just found out about it today. My heart is sadden as if I knew him. I was pulling up an e-mail that one of my co-worker sent to me about famous ones who has gone on, then popped up Lamont. To the family God’s knows best and Lamont R.I.P.

  290. Sonji

    I just found out about Lamont Bentley. It so sadden my heart to read about his passing. May God bless his family and keep them in arms.

  292. Greg

    I wouldn’t have known if I hadn’t received that powerpoint… I saw it and was like “Who is Lamont Bentley… that looks like that cat from Moesha”. He definitely was on the upward direction of his career.
    RIP.

    when i heard i thought he didnt have a chance in life,but reading this he will be greatly missed!!
    i see him in moesha and i feel he derseves a life,but i know he’s in heaven and he is watching all of us from above. i know what it feels to lose a loved one it is hard,so i say this to his family,friends.
    though a loved one is not here look on the positive. he is in heaven
    he is watching you from above
    and you are now facing reality you don’t know what to supect!!!
    i’m praying for you(family)!!!

  294. Victoria

    I just recieved the Power Point “Gone but not forgotten” on yesterday and like a lot of you, I didn’t even know this young brother had died. A whole year later, I just can’t believe it. Lamont you are greatly missed.

  295. Andrea

    sorry that you are gone. You always made me laugh.
    I hope that you you are in heaven looking down on us and still knowing that we care about you.
    _Thank You

    MAN, I WATCH MOESHA EVERYNIGHT. LAMONT WAS SUCH A GOOD ACTOR, SOMETIMES HE MAKES YOU FORGET HE IS DEAD. I TRULY ENJOY SEEING A BROTHER PORTRSY A GOOD GUY ROLE. SAD TO SAY THAT WE WON’T SEE HIM DO ANY MORE…
    R.I.P LAMONT BENTLY

  298. AJ

    I watched “Shard” which co-starred Lamont. As I watched the film, I thought how wonderful it was that he was having roles which might offer him real opportunity after Moesha. Then as the credits for the film ended,I was shocked to see the tribute at the end of the film. I enjoyed him on ‘Moesha’. I had no idea that he had passed. I extend heartfelt condolences to his family and the actors who worked with him – he was so bright, creative, handsome and talented. He will really be missed.

  299. central e. jennings

    i just found out in november that lamount died. I was crushed. he reminds me of my own son jonathan who passed away february 14, 1999. they even look alike and had the same personality. i know they are in heaven watching over us. I was really, really saddend. I know i will see you and my son again. rest in peace and live life eternally.
    love MissLady777

    Hakeem from Moesha… I can’t believe you are no longer with us. Your charisma and humour entertained us all over the years. You have been taken from us so soon… May you rest in peace. You are Gone but NEVER Forgotten!! Kind regards to his family as they mourn their loved one… may the lord help them through this difficult time.

  301. Miss Sirrius

    I too found out via the updated Powerpoint presentation. Jay Dee, Lyndon David Hall and now this – and so late. We never get news like this in london.
    Very sad to hear of his passing, as i greatly enjoyed Moesha.
    Rest in peace, brother man.

  302. I Digg

    Wow! I just saw the powerpoint presentation and had no idea that the brother had passed. I am so out of touch sometimes and so wrapped up in my own world. Prayers and blessings for this young brother who was a brother to Blair Underwood per wikipedia. May his family and friends be blessed and supported in this time of morning which never passes as quickly for them as it does for us who are not so close. Take care.

  303. Sheila

    I just found out and was devastated by this tragic loss of such a talented young black man doing something going somewhere and being taken away so much potential,It reminded me of my nephew Anthony M Green AKA “Purple” from here in San Antonio.Who was murdered in Dec ’05. Young intellegent and taken away before he could do all the good he could missed out on his son’s life for no reason,and now Lamont Bentley so sad my Heart Felt Sympathy goes out to his family and friends and Co-Stars he is gone but long not forgotten. God Bless You All, Still

  304. Jennifer

    I just found out today about the tragic death of Lamont Bentley. I am deeply saddened by this news. I just can’t believe he’s gone. I was so looking foward to seeing him again in other projects because he was a great actor. With out him on “Moesha” I don’t think I would have enjoyed the show as much or laughed as much as I did.
    He will truly be missed.
    Rest in Peace

  305. reese

    For we not when the father will call us home, but we should be prepared to stand in his presence to hear “Well done thou good and faithful servant”. May the Lord bring peace and ease the pain of his passing.

  306. Dan Borquez

    I know he is in heaven right now saying i lived a good life with my family and i wish it could of last longer but god saw him and he was such a angel that god wanted him but god gived his family a much better gift Lamont as there gardian angel and he is protecting and saving his family know matter what happens and i will pray for his family and hope they are feeling a little bit better of what im saying right now.
    Bless you Bentley family and i will pray for you.

  307. chandra

    Well we was watching the show one day and my son said mommy that is the guy that we read about in the jet magazine that is Hakeem he died.It was so sad. We love the way that you use to act, you will be miss.Truly my soul waiteth upon God:from him cometh my salvation.May you R I P

  308. Ashley

    Moesha is my favorite show on t.v. Finally I could idolize someone who i really felt that i connected with. Cause on t.v. me and Hakeem have the same problems. I was so hurt when i heard that he had died. My heart goes out to his family and his friends which who had loved him best.
    REST IN PEACE!!! WE MISS YOU AND WE LOVE YOU!

  309. sharon

    It is one year later and I just found out about Lamont’s untimely death. To me, it might as well have happen this morning. I am very sad but I gloriy the fact that he is singing with the angels.

  310. Candi

J ust remember that Im 1 of ur biggest fans & I love you lots!!!!! =)

  315. Shary (VA)

    It’s been over a year and still unbelievable. My mom and I used to sit back and laugh at Hakeem and that crazy Kim on Moesha. “I can’t believe you’re gone, man.” I heard about it when it happened and I was so heart broken. I heard about the details and to know that he was ejected from his car and hit by 5 left me speechless and in tears. “I only knew you through TV, but it was like loosing one of my relatives.” I was recently reading something on Famous Blacks lost in 2003 to 2006 and it stated something about Lamont’s death being related to suicide. I refuse to believe that!!! “I will keep you and your family in my prayers especially your lil girls. Keep the comedy going up there in heaven.” Much Love Shary

  316. shantelle

    i only found out today that you died and it is a big shame i feel so sad to know that someone so young and courageous has been taken away, you was one of the few black males that the getto had to look up to you were such a success and your thoughts are with me. xxxx

  317. Rita

    I am so shocked to hear about the passing of such a wonderful person and actor. I just found out through a co-worker and i am really in disbelief of all of this. I am very sorry for the family and I hope that you know that GOD never makes mistakes and that you all now have a ANGEL LOOKING OUT FOR YOU…

  318. Tiera

  320. Kenyatta

    I just can’t belive he is gone i mean he was my favorite character on Moesha and he still is sometimes i wanna cry!! Moesha is my favorite show i watch cuz of lamont mostly he was so fine and when he would get upset oh my gosh he looks so good!!! If i could have met him just once i would have never 4gotten it but i will always and 4eva remember u boo. I luv ya even though i dint kno u you’l always be in my heart!! R.I.P

  321. Brittny Wilson

    Hey babez….i kno you’ll never see this……. but maybe you will ,only you and god will know .I just finished watching Moesha and i keep thinking to myself ….how can “hakeem” be gone….just gone? You brought me to tears you know ,when i found out about you and how you were taken from us .I’ll never forget you. Everytime i watch moesha on noggin now ,I still don’t understand how u deserved this. Seeing you everyday on the show alive and so high-spirited puts a sadness in heart because i know that you are nothing like that anymore …you’re in a box in the ground somewhere :( But maybe you’re in a better place and u’re happy….i’ll never forget you .How can i ? i see you everyday on tv!! I love ya lamont .R.I.P hon .

  322. Tamiko Seay

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I just found out about it and was like shocked to see that he had died and so violently. I only pray that he did not suffer and that he is in GOD’s hands. my condolences to his family and friends and fans. May GOD continue to bless you.AMEN!!!!!

  323. Robin Davis

    Lamont aka Keemie, I still find it hard to believe that you’re gone. I guess you were too special for this life here on earth, so God needed you to make Heaven a little more special so he called for you. Though we miss you, we all know that you are better off than those of us who he’s not called for yet. Your family is blessed now they have you looking over them. Your family is in my prayers, may you all be blessed.

  324. Genesis

    when i found out that he died my heart skiped. i love and respect that brother but he is gone and he is present with the Lord. it’s strange to see a young man once full of life and now he is gone. the life that once brought comedy and love has slipped away. in this world we can never be peace. but may his soul rest in perfect peace in jesus name. Amen!
    RIP Lamont bently we shall see you on the great and wonderfull day of the lord where we shall never be parted again

  325. Denise Ford

    Oh my God, I can’t believe that Lamont is gone. I was just playing around and checking my E-mails and someone sent me a e-mail about all the people that are missed, but not forgotten. A nd when I saw a picture of Hakeem from moesha I didn’t believe it, I am so sorry that he’s gone. Lamont was one of my favorit actors. May God continue to strengthen his family, because when you loose a loved one, it takes time to heal.

  331. Amanda Nicole Turner

    I cannot believe that I just found this out today at this moment while looking up Moesha online to see if I could get the show on DVD. Lamont Bentley was a BEAUTIFUL black man and I think it is a shame that his passing wasn’t explained and not made a big deal like other stars death, because like I said I just found out about it. I am deeply saddened and I hope that he rests in peace and that his family is coping.
    ~Amanda Nicole Turner~

  332. Breyanna

    I just found out that he died & it saddens me so much. I am really sick on my stomach thinking about it, just picturing that happening & to such a wonderful person just makes me want to cry. I don’t know what to say, other than you are truly loved Lamont Bently & you will truly be missed, by family, fans & just everyone who ever met you.
    God bless. Prayers to the family of Lamont.
    RIP Lamont, I will see you one day in Gods kingdom.

    I know I am late but unfortunately I live in the UK and just read somewhere that this gorgeous great actor passed away over a year ago. My mouth dropped open and I was in shock. I really feel for his family. I won’t tell him RIP cos in creation there is always movement. I will say to him may he move to higher more luminious realms until he reaches home(paradise). May the ALMIGHTY bless him and his family always.
    Amen

  337. "Yattaboo"

    Lamont it was not easy hearing about your death and I still don’t believe it now. I’m really trying though. You have always been my favorite actor and you still are. I basically watch Moesha just 2 c u. You’ll always have a special place in my heart. May God continue to bless the family!

  339. lyasia

    I’m so sorry about this tragic accident! I heard that he hd died but i didn’t believe it. He was a total cutie and i enjoyed watching moesha because of him. Sometimes i only watched moesha because he was on the show. He made me laugh all the time. Like the one episode when Mo’ got her 1st dorm room and Hakeem and Niecy was getting on her about how small it was and Mo’ was like it’s a comfortable place and the lady sellin the dorm was like yes, it’s very comfortable and kind of big and hakeem was like oh please if you throw a towel on the floor you will have wall to wall carpet! I was laughing really hard because the way he said it and what he said was really funny. You truly are going to be missed my brotha! MY heart goes out to your family. Love always

  340. Revone Williams

    I just want to say lamont was a cool kid. Everyday i watch moesha he make me jealous when he was with moesha but I was glad that they got hook-up on the tv show. When I heard the news my heart just fell out of my chest I could’nt believe it was him.He was like big brother that would protect you that how cool he was. But my prayer go out to his family. R.I.P Lamont B.

  341. Jessica Joiner

    I can’t believe that Lamont Bently died. I didn’t reliaze that he was gone until I looked on the computer at some old shows of Moesha he was a funny guy my prayers go out to his family Lamont baby we will all meet again someday

    I always will love You!

  350. Brandi

    Were do u start. i could not belive it when i found out that this brillant young man was dead. Its easier to belive when it was someone you have not met but, if God ever blessed you with the chance to meet him you would understand what i mean. When you watched him on moesha you could not help but to smile because so delightful , just as he was. He was always smiling. You could truly tell he is missed because up until this day people are still visiting his blog and sending messages.How could 5 cars run over his body? Dosent anyone have common sense anymore. It just makes me so sad to even think about the fact he died. We truely miss you. I know alot of people out there like me would really like to see you beatifut body, face, and smile grace the cover of a magazine again with a picture of a more recent you.
    May God Bless his family , friend,and Fans .You are truely missed among us and we all hope to see you again .We love you.

I hope you stay rested in peace Artimus Lamont Bentley. youll never be foregotton.

    I first saw Lamont on “Tales from the hood” as crazy K and for some reason he was my favorite character on that movie. I watched Moesha and was amazed how he could be so versatile with his characters and he just left me in awe with that. he just seemed so indestructible as Crazy K but no one is invincible like we believe sometimes. Here’s to a great entertainer and an even better man. RIP Lamont(crazy k)

  358. Fatima

    i can’t believe you are gone. just watching moesha everyday makes me feel sad. lamont was a grat addition to the moesha pack. just knowing he is gone is making me want to become an actress just like him. thanks lamont and i hope you are resting in peace love u.

    Man its so hard to belive that it has been over 2 years since we have kicked . The last time was on my b day in Nap in 2004 our reg meeting spot. Going close to 1 1/2 years since we talked exactly 5 days before your journey into enternal life. I still have dreams of us kicking it man dealing with death sometimes can be hard but it’s even rougher we you known a person all their life reguardless of your faith but I don’t question it ,it helps me reading some of the comments thanks………………………

    I have just recently found out about the tragic death of Lamont Bentley. It has been over a year and I didn’t know that he had passed away. The news has lain heavy on my heart, and today I will continue to keep his family, both on screen and off screen, in prayer. The reality is that Lamont is resting peacefully with his creator and shining over those that loved him, and I hope that will bring a little consolation. God bless you Lamont, and your time on earth was precious and special to us all!

    I just started thinking about Lamont today. It’s sad when you hear about great people leaving us all of a sudden and so soon. It was tragic how he went and I couldn’t possibly inagine the pain that he endured. Although it is almost 1 year to the anniversay of his going home, I would still like to say that you will forever be remembered Lamont and you are a true inspiration to us all. It is ok to be sad and to mourn over your death, but it’s also ok to celebrate your life and thank you for all that you have done. You are a true inspiration to us all Lamont, and you will be truly missed. You, your family and friends are in my prayers. Rest in peace Artimus Lamont Bentley.

  378. James Cee

    i can’t believe this brother is not here with the world. i know they say its better up there then down here, but i think different. This man was a funny dude. His talent was crazy. For example, he played a annoying character in moesha, but you learn to love him on the show. Then he plays a crazy individual in this movie, Tales from the hood as Crazy K. Brother man scared me, but at the same time he was the best at it. Its true what they say, the good die young, and he was too damn young to go. Thats not right and thats why we have to cherish every moment like its our last. Atrimus Lamont Bentley, may your soul rest in peace brother.

  379. NICHOLAS ANTWI SARPONG

    I DON’T KNOW WHERE THE HELL I’VE BEEN BUT I’VE ONLY JUST GATHERED THE SHOCKING NEWS ABOUT LAMONT NO LONGER WITH US AFTER AN URGENT PHONE MESSEGE FROM A MUTUAL FRIEND WHO HAD JUST SEEN A REPEATED DOCUMENTARY ON THE TV ABOUT THE NEWS. I COULDN’T TAKE IT SO I WENT ONTO THE NET TO FIND OUT MYSELF AND TO MY SHOCK…………………….! WE LOVED EVRYONE ON ‘MOESHA’ BUT HIM THE MOST. HE WAS OUR FAVOURITE CHARACTER AND WE STILL IMMITATE SOME OF HIS LINES WHEN WE MEET LIKE ‘HEY MO’. WE LOVED HIM DEARLY AND WILL TRUELY BE MISSED. SO THEY SAY ‘ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG’ AND IT’S TRUE. HAKEEM, MY PRAYERS WILL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU AND I BELIEVE YOU ARE IN THE GOOD HANDS AND WE’LL SEE YOU ONE DAY. THIS IS ON BEHALF OF ALL YOUR BIG FANS IN THE WHOLE OF GHANA AND THE UNITED KINGDOM. MAY YOU REST IN PERFECT PEACE. LUV U BRUV X X

    Reading an article today, a little over a year later and I am just finding out about the loss. The news of this has sadden me, but as long as we as a people and fans keep his name alive then he continues to live amongst us. You are only forgotten when you are no longer mentioned. This is one positive man and actor whos memory will continue to live on. Rest in Peace and Blessings to the family.

  381. Chuck

    Wow!!!!
    Its’s crazy how things happen sometimes. For the longest I’ve been wondering where is the dude that played Hakeem on Moesha? I noticed that he had been out of site for a few yrs. And just now Jan 24 07 I find out about his death. I wish nothing but blessings for his family, friends, and fans. And this is coming from a real person when I say this……
    Sometimes life gives us things to show us that there are greater things instore for us in our future. I think that Lamont was one of those people. For those that read this message please enjoy your life to the fullest extent of it. Life is short so get everything that you can get from it while you can because most of this BS isn’t promised to you. And the last thing I have to say is don’t be ashamed to tell the people you love that you love them because once their gone it will be a little too late. R.I.P. L. Bentley

    I too am just learning of this talented young man’s death. Tonight while listening to the radio it was mentioned in conjunction with another co-star from the sitcom Moesha. The D.J. gave his real name…so while driving I was hoping to remember the name so I could look it up online and finally put a face to the name…and to my surprise it was “Hakeem” [Lamont B.]. I was so saddened by the whole thing that I was inspired to do some research on his life and career. Losing such a talented African American brother cannot be properly expressed with words. Although I did not know him personally and not to mention the fact that his tragic death happened about 2 years ago, I still feel empty and just sad. What a void this is for us still hear on Earth. But what a joy knowing that we will see him one day in Heaven. God Bless You…Your Family…Your Friends…and Your Fans.

  383. al walser

  390. Amanda

    I am so saddened to hear about this. I just only found this out today, through hearing about his former co-star’s, Brandy, accident. It seems so long ago that it happened, but so many people still remember him and are leaving caring comments. It goes to show that someone great is never forgotten.

May his family find continued strength and support and may God give them the Peace to carry on.

  401. Kierra D.

    I can say that when I found out this news I was very heartbroken to know that some one that was so sincere has passed. But he his in a better place, a place where he can always feel confort, a place where there is no sadness or being heartbroken. He is in a place where he is safe. We will all miss you and your great characteristic on the show we’ve all come to miss Moesha. You will never be alone. R.I.P. Miss you always a new friend.

Well to me he is still here because I still and always will have a special place for him and only him in my heart!!!

    I want to say that even after all this time, the news of Lamont Bentley’s death still brings me to tears. I was a big fan of Moesha and I watched it religiously when it was on air. I have seen how all the cast has grown and moved on in their careers, and it is said to see Lamont left out of the new things. I know that the cast is missing him so much, and that they wish he was back with them. I am always going to remember Lamont.
    R.I.P. Lamont Bentley……I LOVE YOU!!!
    You are now sitting at the right hand of God, looking down upon us. I hope to see you again my brother.

    I just recently (a few moths ago) learned of Lamont Bentley’s (Hakeem’s) death. This is very horrible and sad to me. I don’t even want to believe this…There is a saying that “the good die young.” I hope that is true in this case. I didn’t know him, but he will definitely be MISSED!
    Much Love

    I recently watched “Wifey”, a movie Lamont Bentley appeared in. I was looking at the credits and it said, in memory of Lamont Bentley. I just knew it was someone else, but in the back of my mind i knew. Well, i just want to say to his family. Lamont was an great actor. He made my day, a many of times just watching him on tv. His smile could light up any darkness around. He is truly missed in this world. Rest In Peace Funny Man
