Mr. Gauntt passed away January 31, 2019 in Tyler. He was born March 27, 1944 in Larue. He spent his career serving many capacities in education. He was a teacher at Dallas Christian High School and Cayuga High School, served as principal and superintendent at LaPoynor High School and principal at Bovina High School. He worked in accreditation with the Texas Education Agency and with Region IV Education Service Center.
He was a dedicated member of LaPoynor Church of Christ where he served as an elder, bible class teacher and a song leader. He loved spending time in nature and was fortunate to still live on the same land he grew up on; mowing grass, piddling and tinkering. When he wasn’t at home, he enjoyed traveling all over the United States, but always avoided the interstate. Known as “Pa-Dad” to his grandchildren, he was loved and will be missed by all who knew him.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Otto Courtney Gauntt and Magdalena Annie (Gillert) Gauntt; brother Curtis Gauntt and sister Wanda Holder.
Survivors include wife Joyce Gauntt of Larue; children, Jonathan Gauntt and Tiffany of Nacogdoches, Steve Gauntt and Angie of Plainview; grandchildren, Lori Gauntt, Ashley Gauntt, Austin Guantt and Luke Gauntt; sister-in-law Trudie Gauntt; brother-in-law Bill Holder and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
Family will welcome friends at the Gauntt home on Sunday, February 3, 2019 from 3-6:00 pm.
