Mr. Genthry Landrum was born on April 12, 1943 in Macon, Mississippi to the late Harrison Landrum and Nellie Richardson Landrum. He was the last of ten children born. He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Lawrence, Leon and William, and sisters Herreen (Red) and Ruth. Genthry accepted Christ at an early age at New Hope Methodist Church in Macon, Mississippi. Genthry was educated at Macon High School in Macon, Mississippi and later attended Florissant Valley Community College in St. Louis, MO where he received a degree in Culinary Arts. Genthry united in holy matrimony on March 22, 1967 to Helen Rodgers. To this union one child was born, Gary Genthry Landrum. Genthry worked as a tree cutter in Mississippi and in 1965 came to St. Louis, MO and pursued a culinary career where he was employed at Flaming Pit Restaurant in Crestwood, MO until his retirement.
Genthry had a love for old cars and fishing. He was a man to help anyone and enjoyed spending time with family and friends. He continued to do this until his health failed him.
