Roger Dale Gunter, 74, passed away peacefully at home on Thursday December 10, 2020.
Roger was born on November 29, 1946 to parents Joseph (Joe) Gunter and Louise Malone, in Jacksonville Texas. He served overseas in the U.S. Air Force and spent many years working in the custom home industry. Roger loved being outdoors, riding horses, and sipping morning coffee on his beautiful cedar deck, where he watched baby foxes, deer, and the wonders of nature roam by.
Roger always lived life on his own terms. He enjoyed taking long road trips with the truck windows down, rose-tinted aviators on, and no planned return date, to visit his daughters and grandkids living across states. These trips would sometimes take weeks, as he made sure to stop and explore every town along the way. He always said that he could never get enough of the fresh, outdoor air.
Roger moved to Lake Quitman 3 years ago, just a stone’s throw from the calm and beautiful water. He lived the remainder of his life there alongside the companionship of his good friend and cousin, Vicki Flint. His family and friends will miss him tremendously, but are comforted in knowing that he now has all the fresh air that he could ever want.
He is survived by his daughters Jody Moffett of Thornton Colorado, Christy Reidsma of Stafford Virginia, Dezerra Gunter of Houston Texas, and Jessica Gunter of Garland Texas; Siblings Peggy Lawley, Nelda Smith, Bobby Joe Gunter, and Ken Gunter; Grandchildren Logan Reidsma and Tonee Moffett, as well as many other family members and friends.
Roger is joining his mother, father, and sister Wanda in Heaven, where we all will see them again someday.
Graveside service for Roger will be held Thursday December 17, 2020, at Creagleville Cemetery in Grand Saline Texas at 1:00 PM.
