Obituary of Holloway Gantt


Mr. Holloway Gantt, 91, formerly of Waldo, AR, passed from labor to reward at Fate, TX, on Thursday, May, 18, 2023.  He was the son of the late Seymore Gantt and the late Rosie Williams Gantt, born January 9, 1932.

He was a "no nonsense" kind of man that was quick to remind you that he did not play. Yet, he was known within his family and community as a loving and caring soul. 

He was preceded in death by one son, Holloway Gantt, Jr, two daughters: Earl Bell Johnson and Joyce Easter, three brothers: Joe Fred Smith, Huey P. Smith, and James Smith, and one sister: Annie Bell Gantt. 

He leaves cherished memories with two sons: Jerry Gantt of Waldo and Joseph Moss of Fate, TX; five daughters: Doris Moss of Waldo, Rosie Henry of Magnolia, Gloria Gantt of ElDorado, Bonnie Sue Williams of Texarkana, TX, and Bobbie Denise Gantt, of Monroe, LA; a great host of grandchildren and great-grandchildren, four brothers: Louis Dean Hayes of Magnolia, Aaron C. Lambert of Waldo, Rev, Charles Gantt (Terrisa) of Waldo, and Billy Gantt of Waldo; five sisters: Lola Tucker (Travis) of Charlotte, NC, Annie Witcher (John), Delma Gantt, and Dorothy Gantt, all of Waldo, Jenell Gantt of Prescott, and a very special daughter-in-love, Allie Beavers of Dallas, TX.
