Funeral services will be held Thursday, December 6, 2018 at 2 pm at First United Methodist Church in Tallassee, Alabama with Reverend Clint McBroom officiating. Burial will follow at Rose Hill Cemetery, Jeffcoat Funeral Home directing.
Joby was born on December 28, 1926 in Tallassee, Alabama to Dewitt and Maggie Gauntt. He worked for years as a pharmacist. Most of those years were spent at The Carrville Drug Store; the store he owned and managed for 19 years. He also sold real estate part-time for O’Daniel Realty. When not working, Joby couldn’t resist a few rounds of golf or solving a challenging crossword puzzle. He enjoyed watching Braves Baseball and cheering on his beloved Auburn Tigers. He was also an active member of First United Methodist Church for over 60 years; singing bass in the choir and teaching Sunday School.
Joby is survived by two loving children, Mary Gail (Steve) Hogan, Mandan, North Dakota, Burton (Stephanie) Gauntt, Kent Alabama, grandson Alex (fiancée Nicole) Owens, Devils Lake, North Dakota, and sister, Josephine Tucker, Manchester Georgia. He is preceded in death by his parents, his loving wife Hulda Gauntt, and infant grandson, Brandon Jesse Owens.
