Gospel preacher.

Alvin Bantaw Gunter was born January 9, 1880 and died February 22, 1965 at the Jenkins Nursing Home in Nashville. He was buried at the Cagle Cemetery at Coble, Tennessee. The son of the late John and Susan Cagle Gunter, he was married to Mary Jane Coble in 1900, who preceded him in death June 15, 1952. They had eight children, three died in early childhood. He is survived by one daughter, Martha Chandler; four sons, Paul, Carlos, Ed and Hollis, and by two step-daughters, Ollie Coble and Olivia Dudley.

Brother Gunter began preaching sixty-five years ago and has been instrumental in establishing a number of congregations. He has also worked with many small and weak congregations, as well as some larger ones.

He was a man of deep conviction and had a genuine love for the truth and for the souls of man. It was brother Gunter who encouraged me when I was just a boy and assisted me in my obedience to the first principles of the gospel. He was loved for his works sake and will be missed by his many friends. -- B. B. James, Gospel Advocate, March 25, 1965, page 191.
