ObituaryShare A Memory

Dennis W. Gentry of Gleed passed away unexpectedly Friday, October 6, 2017, while visiting Oak Harbor.

He was born in Yakima to William and Calleen Gentry on October 15, 1951. After graduating from Naches High School, he began working at Slim’s Market in Naches. Later, he worked on and off in Alaska doing construction and working in the gold mines. He owned Ramblers Park Tavern, was a beekeeper and for the past 13 years had worked at Royce Enterprises as a process server.
Dennis enjoyed the outdoors – hunting, fishing, mushroom and huckleberry picking, and he took pride in his carpentry skills. He also had a love of music and enjoyed singing, songwriting and playing his guitar. He was no stranger to the karaoke microphone at The Walkabout in Naches. His favorites to sing were Roy Orbison, Elvis and Alabama. And he loved watching the Mariners and Seahawks.
Dennis was a loving father to his two children and enjoyed spending time with his six grandchildren. He was a loyal friend who would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. Dennis was also full of mischief, and you could catch a glimpse of it in his blue eyes. He was affectionately known as “Dennis the Menace.”
Dennis is survived by his sisters, Bonnie Hansen and Karen (Chris) Kelparek; his brother, Jon (Sharon) Gentry; his children Michele (Jay) Ellenberger and Nicholus (Julie) Gentry; his six grandchildren, Mathew, Benjamin, Jackson and Shaylee Ellenberger, and Dane and River Gentry; and his husky, Blue. 
Dennis is preceded in death by his parents, William and Calleen Gentry, and a sister, Lavonne Gentry.

Please join us on his 66th birthday in a Celebration of his life from 2-5 p.m. Sunday, October 15, at the Cleman’s View Sports Park Building (the old Naches Boot and Spur) on Allan Road, Naches.
