Sam Gentry

I was saddened to read in the Chronicle this week that former long-time Grand Jury Bailiff, Sam Gentry, passed away this week.

He may have been before the time of some the younger CJC folks, but he was a fixture of Grand Jury for many years. He loved grumbling about the ADA's and making fun of anyone he possibly could, but you always knew that Sam liked you and he liked his job. He was a good guy and (although he would shudder to hear it) a pretty sweet guy, too.

My sympathy goes out to his family. He will be missed.

He was a great guy! Always enjoyed seeing him at GJ...he kept me entertained while I waited to go present cases.

Great guy. I met Sam when he was with Pct 6 and was glad to see him with Pct 1 and Grand Jury. Always a pleasure to see him and visit with him.
