James Daniel Gunter “Jimmy”, age 80, of Sanford, NC, passed away on Thursday, September 5, 2019.
He was born in Durham County on September 22, 1938 to the late Curtis Glenn Gunter and Katherine Ann Kelly Gunter. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother C.G. Gunter.

He was a self-employed building contractor for over 50 years and was thankful he was able to help his children build their forever homes. Jimmy was a loving, devoted husband to his sweetheart, Edith. He honored his commitment made to her over 60 years ago – providing tender, loving care to her up until his death.
