Calvin Benny Gunter

The Life, Love and Legacy
Calvin Gunter was born August 28, 1938, in Quitman, Texas to the late Benny and Willie Opal
Gunter. At an early age, the family moved to Mineola and settled on Krause Street. He
attended Elementary through High school at Addie E. McFarland.

Calvin was employed at Benham & Company until he retired in 1996.
He dedicated his life to Christ at an early age at St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church.

He later joined Southside Church of Christ in 1972. Being active in the church was the highlight
of his life. There was never a time Brother Gunter would not hesitate to transport Church
members back and forth to Southside Church of Christ. Brother Calvin served the Lord well, and
he will be greatly missed. He was a good neighbor, and many counted him as a friend.

Calvin served faithfully as a Sunday school teacher, a Leading Brother, and a Trustee. He would
visit the sick and shut-in, and willingly served in whatever capacity he was needed. Everyone
knew him as a kind and caring person. He would share his wisdom with the young as well as the
old. Brother Gunter was grounded in God’s word and could quote a scripture for any occasion.

Those who knew him well would tell you that Brother Calvin enjoyed football and playing
dominoes. A great big smile would cross his face whenever he got an opportunity to beat his
three siblings, Elvin, Robert and James at dominoes.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and his sisters Beatrice Gunter and Marie Perry.

Brother Calvin exchanged his earthly garments for a heavenly robe on May 11, 2019.

He is cherished in the hearts of his brothers; James (Classie) of Garland, TX; Elvin of Mineola,
TX; and Robert (Minnie) of Fort Worth, TX ; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
