Obituary for ABRAHAM GANTT

Abraham “Baby Boy” Gantt was born on August 19, 1927 in Calvert County Maryland to the late Alexander Gantt and Nettie Gross-Commodore and benefited greatly from the rearing and guidance of his step-mother the late Mary Gantt. He was called home to be with the Lord on Saturday, October 12, 2013 at the Heritage Nursing Home in Solomons, MD.

Abraham was educated in the Prince Frederick school system. He worked as a tobacco sharecropper for many years and also as a laborer for the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant in Lusby Maryland, where he was forced to retired on disability. He was a member of Calvary United Church in Sunderland, MD.

Abraham married the late Katie Marie Brooks in 1947 and from this union they were blessed with thirteen wonderful children, four of whom preceded him in death (Phillip, Robert, Brenda, and Leonard). He loved to talk and loved to tell the news of the town. His favorite saying was “If you don’t know, ask.”

“Baby Boy” had quite the reputation in the county in his younger years but was met with God’s grace and accepted Jesus Christ as His personal Lord and Savior and was not ashamed to make it known. He had the gift of helping people (such as taxiing people to various places as they needed),he also loved the hymns of old.

Abraham married Emma Louise Stepney on June 11, 1996. For her he was a loving and caring provider. She loved and cared compassionately for him until his death.

He leaves to cherish: his wife, Emma Louise; three daughters, Carolyn Sterling (Bucas,III) of Clinton, MD, Marilyn Mackall (Wayne) of Prince Frederick, MD, Lori Jones (Tyrone, Sr.) of Lusby, MD; six sons, Monroe Sr. Oswego, N.Y., Alvin (Rose) of Lexington Park, MD., Mervin of Lusby, MD, James of Point Lookout, MD, Melvin of Springfield, Virginia, Kevin of Capitol Heights, MD; daughters-in- law, Margaret and Madeline Gantt of Prince Frederick, MD; 32 Grandchildren, 30 great grandchildren and a host of great-great grandchildren; his brother, Charles (Linda) Gantt of Waldorf, MD; sisters, Theresa Miles (Emile) of Oxnard, California, Helen (Oscar) Commodore of Upper Marlboro, MD, Edith (Harry) Commodore of St. Leonard, MD., Margaret Chase of Oxon Hill, MD, Vivian (Charles) Summerville of Hyattsville, MD, Marcellus Ingram of Clinton, MD, and Ruth Reynolds of St. Leonard, MD, his best friend Donald Barnes, and a great host of nephews, nieces, other relatives and friends.
