Orville "Frank" F Gentry

November 7, 1940 — December 11, 2022

We are heartbroken to announce the death of our father, Orville Franklin Gentry. Frank passed away peacefully at the age of 82 on December 11, 2022. Our Dad enjoyed football but more specifically the Kansas City Chiefs. He was a season ticket holder around 40 years. He loved road trips, gooseberry pie, and homemade tacos. He was always ready to be silly and tell a joke. He also proudly served our country in the U.S. Navy.

He is missed by his children, Carrie, Travis David (Vicky); grandchildren, Travis Franklin, Taylor, and Avery. He traveled the world with his wife, Kay Burnison, children, Laura (Craig), Danielle (Joe), J.R.; grandchildren, Lauren (Shane) Mitchell, Kedric, Kennedy, and Mackenzie; great grandchildren, Rhett and Briar.

To honor Frank’s memory, we are holding a celebration of his life on Monday, December 26, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. at Carson-Speaks Chapel, 1501 W. Lexington Ave., Independence, MO, 64052, 816-252-7900. A visitation will be held Monday, December 26, 2022, from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. at the funeral chapel. We invite anyone who knew him to attend and remember his wonderful life. We ask attendees to wear Chiefs shirts or red and gold. Memorial contributions may be made in Frank’s honor to 87 and Running, 19885 Detroit Rd., Rocky River, OH, 44116 or 15 and The Mahomies, 1701 Directors Blvd., Suite 370, Austin, TX, 78744.
