In Loving Memory: Steven Richard Gentry
A celebration of life in memory of Steven Richard Gentry, 39, was held on Nov. 24, 2012 at the Stonebridge Church in The Woodlands. Richard passed away on Nov. 20, 2012 at his home in The Woodlands under the care of Memorial Hermann Hospice and his family.
Richard was born on Nov. 9, 1973 in Orange. He is preceded in death by his grandparents Roe and Louise Baldwin, his father Joed Richard Gentry and his brother Travis Gentry.
Richard is survived by his wife of fourteen years, Elissa Gentry of The Woodlands; mother, Dee Baldwin of Bridge City; sister, Shannon Livingston of Orange; brothers, Jim Zeferjahn of Topeka, Kan. and Kyle Gentry of Spring.
Richard attended school in Deweyville, Orangefield, and LCM. He graduated in 1992 from Riverton High School, Riverton, Kan. and attended the University of Arkansas. Richard was a Design Engineer for Baker Hughes prior to his illness. Richard will be greatly missed by his wife, family, coworkers and his many friends. He never met a stranger and always greeted everyone with a smile and a hand shake. During his illness he would find a way to laugh and offer a little “Gentryism” as he called it.
A special thank you to Pastor Keith Pennington of New Life Assembly of God for his beautiful heartfelt memorial and to the nurses of Memorial Hermann Hospital & Hospice Care. You are greatly appreciated and will forever be in our hearts.
