And, naturally, Gentry’s death hit his bandmate and his many fans hard. Perhaps most affected, though, was the star’s wife of 18 years, Angie, who understandably found the sudden loss of her spouse to be an unexpected and devastating blow.
Just absorbing the shocking news was a challenge in itself for Angie, who revealed to People in January 2019 that at the time she had only concentrated on “trying to breathe.” But after the traumatic reality had set in, she ultimately came up with a fitting idea to continue her husband’s legacy.
Angie and Gentry had originally wed back in 1999 in Maui, Hawaii. Then, after having enjoyed a period of married life as a couple, the pair grew their family in 2002 with the arrival of daughter Kaylee; her moniker came from her parents blending their own middle names.
