Body David Lee Gentry, 76, faded off into his final sunset in life on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, at home in Paris, Texas, after a short battle with cancer. David was born on Nov. 20, 1944 to his parents, Delbert Lee Gentry and Jewel Juanita Gustin Gentry in Hugo, Okla. He attended school in Hugo until the family moved to California for a short time. Upon returning to Hugo, David graduated from Hugo High School in 1963. David had enlisted in the U.S. Army on Sept. 13, 1962, and served till honorably discharged in November, 1966, with the rank of Sergeant. He then accepted an assignment to become a commissioned officer and served in the U.S. Army Reserves until his retirement on Jan. 9, 1989, after 26 years, four months and three days service holding the rank of Major in the infantry. David was fortunate to have served his entire military career stateside, but always told us that he had trained many a young soldier who went to Viet Nam that he never got to see come home. David served his country with pride and to the best of his ability and said one of his biggest highlights of his career was being the host Chief for the base visit by the WWII 5-star General Omar Bradley while he was stationed at a base in San Antonio, Texas.
