Paul L. Gunter passed from this life on Sunday, November 28, 1965, at the Oakwood Hospital, Dearborn, Mich., following an extended illness. He was laid to rest in Cadillac Memorial Gardens, Garden City, Mich., by the side of his loving companion, Mamie Crews Gunter, who preceded him in death five weeks. He was the son of the late A. B. and Mary Jane Coble Gunter. Funeral services were conducted on November 30, at the Lincoln Park church with Morris Womack, Ben Morton and Everett Alexander officiating. Born December 4, 1901 in Perry County, Tennessee, Paul was baptized at the age of nine, by J. D. Northcutt, and he served his Master faithfully for fifty-five of his nearly sixty-four years. He was a graduate of Vaughns School of Music in Lawrenceburg, Tenn., and was known throughout the brotherhood as an able and competent song leader. It was while attending Music School that he met his wife. To this union were born three children, who survive: two daughters, Mrs. Wallace (Maxine) Worten, Southfield, Mich., and Mrs. Donald (Jeneal) Sanders, Lincoln Park, Mich.; one son, James Harold, Lincoln Park, Mich., and five grandchildren. In addition to these survivors there are three sisters; Mrs. Olivia Dudley, Willows, Calif., Mrs. Ollie Coble, Centerville, Tenn., and Mrs. Martha Chandler, Hohenwald, Tenn.; three brothers, Carlos, Kosciusko, Miss., Ed, Flat Rock, Mich, and James, Southfield, Mich. Brother Paul was a man of deep conviction, which was evidenced throughout his life. He had served as an elder for the Lincoln Park church and was a capable teacher. He was a devoted husband to his wife, who had been an invalid for many years. --Martha Chandler. Gospel Advocate, December 23, 1965, page 830.
