Who is Gene Raymond Chrisley?
Gene Raymond Chrisley is the son of the late Leanard A. and Allie Mae Childers Chrisley who was born on May 9, 1935. He is the father of Todd Chrisley, a business tycoon, a real estate mogul in America and the star of the viral reality show, “Chrisley Knows Best“.
He is also the husband of Faye Chrisley, Nanny Faye of Chrisley Knows Best TV Show.
Two years to the premiere of the reality show, ” Chrisley Knows Best”, Gene Chrisley died.
However, in the show, Gene, is often held in high esteem by the reality show family as they talk about him. In the first season of Chrisley Knows Best, Gene’s wife, Faye Chrisley decided to move on and find a new date on ChristianMingle.com, and her grandson, Kyle, pointed out that no one would compare to Gene.
“I WAS JUST LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO FIND A CUP OF COFFEE WITH OR TO GO OUT TO DINNER. SOMEONE TO BE A COMPANION,”
Faye said during her confessional on the reality TV show.
Although Kyle was useful by helping her grandma set up her dating profile, they agreed that she wouldn’t find anyone to match up to her late husband, Gene Raymond Chrisley.
“NONE OF THEM LOOK LIKE POPPA DO THEY,”
Faye Said sadly
“WELL, POPPA LOOKED BETTER THAN ALL OF THESE PEOPLE,”
Her grandson Kyle agreed with her.
“I’M NOT EVER GONNA FIND NOBODY LIKE HIM,” .
Faye said once again
Todd also then registered his displeasure with the whole idea of his mom trying to find love again, especially after Gene Chrisley’s wife met up with a guy from the site.
“I’M SURE THE GUY THAT WAS THERE WITH MY MOM IS A VERY NICE GENTLEMAN. BUT, HE’S NOT MY DAD. MY MOTHER HAS NEVER DATED ANYONE IN HER ENTIRE LIFE OTHER THAN MY DAD,”
Todd Chrisley said looking into the camera.
Gene Chrisley got married to Faye, who is nine years younger than him, in the 1960s. Faye Chrisley and her husband Gene had Two Children, Todd, Grayson, and Derrick Chrisley. Derrick Chrisley was born on June 29, 1971, and died as a toddler.
The family who can’t get over the loss of their beloved poppa has kept his memories alive with a number of fond postings.
In February last year, Chase took to his social media page to share a throwback photo with Gene, which he captioned “Miss you bubba.”
Savannah Chrisley also shared an Instagram photo with her late grandfather to keep her memories alive.
In the post She explained that Gene was “her best friends”, in October 2019.
“MY PAPA GENE WAS MY BIGGEST SUPPORTER AND FAN! I DON’T THINK HE EVER MISSED A HORSE SHOW OR SCHOOL EVENT GROWING UP. WE WERE INSEPARABLE…BEST FRIENDS ACTUALLY.
“I REMEMBER ALWAYS LOOKING AT HIM DURING MY HORSE SHOWS JUST TO SEE HIS FACIAL EXPRESSIONS BECAUSE I WANTED TO MAKE HIM PROUD AND TO NO SURPRISE EVERY TIME I LOOKED HE WAS GRINNING EAR TO EAR…”
BUT I THANK GOD FOR THE 15 YEARS THAT HE GAVE ME WITH YOU BECAUSE THOSE WERE THE BEST 15 YEARS. WE MISS YOU…I WISH YOU COULD BE HERE…
