James Henry Gentry

December 13, 1940 ~ November 24, 2018 (age 77)

James Henry Gentry, originally from Baltimore, Maryland, died on November 24, 2018, at the age of 77, but his stubbornness will never be forgotten. Jim was a man that truly relished being there for you whenever a need arose but was terrible at reaching out and asking for a hand when in need. Jim’s illness was his pain and would be his secret until the final months of his life… We truly lost a very good man.

He served twenty years in the United States Navy submarine force, another twenty years building submarines at General Dynamic, Corp. and 77 years a loving father and friend. You were a good man dad and I pray the very best of me is you. I love you…Goodbye.

P.S. Say hello to mom for me.

James is preceded in death by two wives that he comforted before their passing. Josephine Gentry and Corrine Garvey-Gentry both passed of cancer.

James is survived by his children, Darlene Guinn, Jack Gentry, and Martha K. Platter; grandchildren, Jason Guinn, Ashley Guinn, and Dustin Platter; sister, Helen Hicks; niece, Beverly Dobrochowski as well as many other family members and friends.
