Gene Gentrup is a longtime resident of the Kansas City area and a believer in community service. He promotes healthy choices for kids through the Liberty Community Health Action Team, serves on the board of directors for Liberty Meals On Wheels, and helped start Liberty Communities for All Ages, which strives to make the city more inclusive to people of all ages. He has served on the Liberty City Council since 2013, is a past member of Rotary and Kiwanis service clubs, and has coached youth T-ball, softball, football and basketball.
While raising two daughters in Liberty, Gene and his wife, Patty, learned how youth sports can teach life lessons and build character and retain the key ingredient: fun. Together they’ve taken wisdom gained from years of volunteering, coaching, parenting, and cheering on their Megan and Abbie, added the playbook of i9 Sports and now “pay it forward” to another generation of children.
