Alonzo C. Gaut
Meeting ID: 881 0217 9807
Alonzo Calvin Gaut was born to Joel and Ruth Ella Gaut on February 20, 1936 in Marshall Texas. He gained his wings on February 11, 2021.
He graduated from Pendleton High School in Marshall, TX. He served his country in the US Army following high school. He moved to Wichita Falls, TX in 1966. He was employed at Wichita Falls Employment Office (Job Corp), Gates Rubber Company and later at Washex Machinery for thirty-eight years until his retirement in 2007.
He was an active member of Antioch Baptist Church. He was active in Sunday School and served as President of Male Chorus, Vice President of Usher Board, President of Brotherhood and on the Trustee Committee.
He met and married Clara Fisher on March 2, 1979 in Wichita Falls, Texas. They celebrated forty-one years of love together. Often times you would find him giving her a hard time for laughs which they both enjoyed. Alonzo affectionately called his loving wife, “Shorty.”
He was a football fan and a die-hard Cowboys fan. He loved to drive his “Red Pick UP Truck” on the Eastside Community. You could find him many times barbequing for special occasions at the church as his famous Baby Back Ribs were always a hit and would fall off the bone.
He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, cousin and friend who loved his grandchildren dearly. His grandchildren called him “PaPa” which brought a Big Smile to his face each time he heard that name.
He is preceded in death by parents; brother, Harold Gaut; two daughters, Renee Gaut, and Judy Mollice; and grandson, Henry E. King, Jr.
He leaves to cherish his memories, his loving wife, Clara Gaut; two daughters, Anita Neal and Vanessa King; son, Derel Gaut; three step children; sixteen grandchildren; thirty-three great grandchildren; one great great grandchild; a host of other relatives and friends.
