In 1994, David B. Gentry, Laura G. Vanhoy, and H.W. Sharpe, Jr. took an opportunity and purchased the former Huff Funeral Home Facility of Jonesville, located at 4517 Little Mountain Road. The facility was remodeled and opened on June 24 of the same year as Gentry Family Funeral Service. In 1996 a decision was made to expand the operations to Yadkinville for a broader service area and to better serve the families located there. Land was purchased at 5108 US Highway 601 and construction began on a new 18000 Square foot facility, which was completed and opened in August of 1997. In 2008, David B. Gentry completed the purchase of the remaining shares in order to keep the firm family owned and operated.

Through the years, the owners were fortunate to have the advise and direction from Grady M. Mackie and Carl Gentry, Jr., both former owners of Mackie-Gentry Funeral Home of Yadkinville, who have a combined number of over 100 years experience in funeral service.

Gentry Family Funeral Service has been blessed with dedicated employees who give their time and effort in the community to assist families through the transition of the death of a loved one. The firm has always been committed to providing professional, caring, and compassionate service to families. We are proud to remain and conduct ourselves as, "Family Focused, Family Owned, and Family Committed".
