Two years before “Chrisley Knows Best” first premiered, the Chrisleys suffered a major loss. According to Distractify, Gene Chrisley died in 2012 after a bout of cancer. He was 77 years old. Per the outlet, Gene was an army veteran who fought in the Korean war. A man dedicated to serving others, Gene is no doubt greatly missed by his family. “Found this today of my dad during his stint in the army , he was 16, I am proud of his sacrifices and will never take them lightly,” Todd once wrote on Instagram, along with a sepia-toned photo.

In the past, Todd’s daughter Savannah Chrisley has also shared how amazing Gene was as a grandfather. “My Papa Gene was my BIGGEST supporter and fan! I don’t think he ever missed a horse show or school event growing up,” she captioned a 2019 post on Instagram, with the throwback photo seen above. “We were inseparable…best friends actually.” Gene Chrisley might not be here to see his family smashing goals and attaining new heights, but one thing is certain, he remains alive in their hearts.
