LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — Allen Gentry, 82, died May 24, 2024, at home surrounded by his family.

Allen was born in Imperial County on May 29, 1941, to Bessie and John Gentry. He was one of four siblings.

He graduated high school from Imperial Valley High, and went on to have a successful career in construction, becoming a general contractor and running his own business.

He served in the U.S. Army from 1966 to 1968, doing a tour in Vietnam.

He then moved to Lake County in 1969 and married his high school sweetheart, Frances Gentry.

They remained in Lake County, having three daughters and building a beautiful life together for 47 years.

He is survived by his brother, Joe Gentry; and his daughters, Natalie Gentry, Nicole Gentry and Stacey Gentry.

Even though he died just days from his 83rd birthday, we are comforted that he is now at peace and with the love of his life.

There will be no services, per his request.
