Official Obituary and Celebration of Life

Arrangements For Troy Lee Gentry

Nashville, TN, September 11, 2017….. Troy Lee Gentry passed away Sept. 8, 2017 in Medford, N.J., at the age of 50. He was born April 5, 1967 in Lexington, Ky. 

He was preceded in death by his parents, Lloyd and Patricia Gentry, and his brother, Keith Gentry.

A
loving father and devoted husband, Gentry is survived by his wife,
Angie Gentry (nee McClure), as well as his daughters, Taylor and Kaylee. 

He was a graduate of Lexington Community College and he attended the University of Kentucky.

Gentry
was best known as a member of the award-winning country duo Montgomery
Gentry, along with his longtime friend Eddie Montgomery. The pair began
performing together in their home state of Kentucky and released their
debut album, “Tattoos & Scars,” in 1999. The duo, whose trademark
sound combined Southern Rock and Country, scored a string of No. 1 hits,
including “If You Ever Stop Loving Me,” “Something to Be Proud Of,”
“Lucky Man,” “Back When I Knew It All” and “Roll With Me.” They achieved
Platinum certification on three of their albums and Gold certification
on three others.

In 2009 the duo became members of the venerable Grand Ole Opry, which was Gentry’s proudest professional achievement. 

The band was planning to release an album of new music in 2018 to mark their 20th anniversary as a duo.

A
generous man, Gentry supported numerous charitable organizations
including Make A Wish Foundation and T.J. Martell Foundation as well as
military-related charities such as The USO. He was an active supporter
of breast cancer awareness and research. Montgomery Gentry was honored
with the Academy of Country Music’s Humanitarian Award in 2009.

Known
for his wide smile, Gentry was personally driven by faith, family and
living life to the fullest. He was happiest on the water with his
family. He enjoyed both wake boarding and snow skiing. Gentry was also
an active supporter of various athletic teams at his daughter Kaylee’s
school.

A
follower of Christ, Gentry faithfully attended Brentwood Baptist Church
in Brentwood, Tenn., when he was not on the road. One of his favorite
bible verses was Deuteronomy 31:6, which says, “Be strong and
courageous; don’t be terrified or afraid of them. For it is the Lord
your God who goes with you; He will not leave you or forsake you.”

A
public celebration of Gentry’s life will take place Thursday, Sept. 14
at 11 a.m. CT at the Grand Ole Opry House, located at 2804 Opryland
Drive, Nashville, TN. 37214. A private, family internment will follow.
