Donald Gentry

Jun 01, 1940 - Feb 20, 2024

location-icon

Fort Worth, TX

Donald Gentry, a resilient soul with a heart as vast as the Texas plains, passed away on February 20, 2024. Born in Corsicana, Texas, June 1940, he embarked on a journey that would leave an indelible mark on those who knew him. As a young man, he became affectionately known as just Don. Don’s spirit defied his undersized frame. At I.M. Terrell High School in Fort Worth, he donned the football jersey, proving that determination could overcome physical limitations. His grit caught the attention of life’s grand stage—the United States Army. Enlisting after graduation, Don served his country with unwavering loyalty. His days were etched in duty, and his nights echoed with camaraderie among fellow soldiers. Fate intervened, and a back injury altered his path. It was then that Congressman (later Senator) Wright stepped in, advocating for Don’s honorable discharge. Grateful for this lifeline, Don carried the memory of Wright’s kindness throughout his days. Returning to Fort Worth, Don found solace in the hum of engines at General Motors. Yet, his heart remained tethered to the land. Cattle—majestic creatures that embodied resilience and grace—captivated him. A friend’s father, (who Don met in the Army) a sage in bovine lore, became Don’s mentor. Teaching him about everything cattle and providing him with a recommendation for his first land purchase. Once he retired from General Motors, his dream came true when he bought his first small ranch and started practicing the cattle rearing skills he had learned. He eventually purchased a larger 100-year-old family ranch that he stocked with cattle and had finally found his little piece of Texas Heaven that he loved for the last 30 years of his life. You could not talk to Don for more than a few minutes without him waxing gleefully about cows and their physical and mental make-up. As a “Cowboy” contrary to popular beliefs, Don was not a fan of horses. Fact be known, he actually hated them. His love of everything cattle and the cattle business led him to become a member of the Navarro County Water Board, cattle auctions, teacher of cattle husbandry, and a friendship with Buck Taylor (Newly O’Brian) of the TV show “Gun Smoke” Don Gentry’s legacy transcends mere words. His love for cattle, his unwavering patriotism, and the bonds forged in shared struggles define a life well-lived. As the sun sets over the Texas plains, we honor a man who danced with the wind, played football with the stars, and tended to the earth and his cattle like a guardian. Don spent the last four years of his life living with his nephew Charles (Sandra) Horton with weekly visits to his beloved ranch. Donald is mourned by his sisters Bobbie Clopton Williams (Bennie), Shirley Clopton Kindred (Sam), his brothers Tommy Clopton (Carol), Harold Walker (Joyce), James Walker, and his favorite sister-in-law, Dollie (Henry) Gentry, and a loving family of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. In his own way he loved us all, more than we knew. He was a unique individual who found his own path and lived life his own way without too many people. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Texas Cattleman’s Association in Donald’s memory. “May he rest in eternal pastures, forever grazing under the open sky and when the last cow roam, may your spirit ride alongside them, forever free.” To send a flower arrangement or to plant trees in memory of , please .

Fort Worth, TX

Juanita Faye Bradford, 78, a former resident of Wellington, passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 25, 2024, in Fort Worth. She is more alive today than ever before in the presence of Jesus, her savior. A visitation will be held from 1:30 to 2:15 p.m. Friday, March 1, at Adams Funeral Home, followed by a private family graveside. Arrangements are by Adams Funeral Home of Wellington. Juanita was born on January 28, 1946, in Galveston, to Sellers and Alice Harod Silveria. The third born child, the “baby”, with two older brothers who knew that she was the “first-born daughter”, and she was always trying to keep up with Sam, 8 years older, and Walter, 4 years older. She grew up in Texas and enjoyed her cowboy boots. The majority of her childhood was spent in Fort Worth, Liberty Hill, and Channelview, where her dad was a pastor and history teacher, her mom played the piano, sewed, taught Sunday school, and worked at the library. After retirement, Juanita and her husband Clifton moved to Wellington in 2004 from Baytown. He preceded her in death in 2005. She later relocated to Fort Worth to be near family. Juanita was an avid reader and devoured many books. She enjoyed feeding the ducks, painting a little, drawing up house plans, landscaping, and designing flower beds. With an eye for detail, not much made it past her observation. She was an excellent secretary, disciplined and precise. After her marriage in 1965 she devoted her time and attention to raising and teaching her children, Richard, Terrie Lynn, and Jerry. She encouraged them to be caring, genuine, giving, and to have a servant’s heart. Not mincing any words, she was straightforward, and you usually knew what she was thinking. If she discerned that you could do better or step up a little taller, you were encouraged to do so. Mom didn’t put up with any nonsense and was protective against wrong influence and mindsets. She loved Jesus and being a mom. When she gave, it was wholeheartedly, with no reserves. Always striving to be on the side of right and make a difference. Doing something “half baked” was not an option, and oh how she enjoyed her dually pickups. God blessed her with her 3 children, 13 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, and many friends that hold her memory dear and will meet her again one day. The family suggests that memorials be made to the Collingsworth General Hospital in Wellington, they took such good care of her. Sign the online guestbook at www.adamsfuneralsvc.com.
