Obituary

Howard William Gant, of Ann’s Choice in Warminster, PA passed away on Sunday, January 12th, 2020 at the age of 92. Howard was one of three children of the late Howard S. Gant and Hannah R. (Steelman) Gant. Howard’s lovely and admired wife of 53 years, Jean Bernice Moxley died in 2005. He is survived by their son Kenneth Reed Gant and his wife Cynthia Ann (Henry) and their four children: Philip, Gregory, Zachary and Alyson. Howard is also survived by his late sister Ruth (Gant) Spieker Jenkins’ children: Barbara and William Spieker, and their families; also by his sister-in-law Ruth (Johnson) Gant, wife of his deceased brother Donald, their children Sharon and Cindy and their families.
Howard was a child of the Depression Era. He enlisted in the Navy at age 17, just prior to the end of WW II. In 1960, he started an “Independent Insurance Agency” from scratch, which was sold to a local bank over 30 years later. For over a dozen years, Howard was President of “Quaint Oak Building and Loan Association”, which today is publicly traded “Quaint Oak Bank” with offices in Southampton, Allentown, New Britain and Philadelphia, with over 120 employees. His son Kenneth is on the Board of Directors. In the mid 1980’s, Howard and three friends formed “The Concert Company” to produce Rock Shows. Before selling to the “Electric Factory”, over 100 shows were put on in the Philadelphia area. Howard and Jean’s main hobby for over 30 years was family genealogy with Jean becoming a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). In 2017, Howard’s Family History Records were published, tracing many ancestral lines back to the 1600’s and is on the shelves of many genealogical and historical societies including the Mormon Library in Salt Lake City, UT and the New England Historical Society in Boston. Howard was active in Scouting as a Scout, Explorer, Assistant Scoutmaster, Troop Committee Chairman, Cub Master and Merit Badge Counselor. His son and three grandsons all became Eagle Scouts. One of Howard’s joys was spending time at Pine Top Hunting Club in Pike County in the Poconos. Howard was also a so-so golfer and a decent league bowler for many years. The viewing will be at the Kirk & Nice Suburban Chapel, 333 W. County Line Rd, Feasterville, PA 19053 at 11am, followed by a service there at noon. Burial will be at the adjoining cemetery immediately after the service. Guests are invited back to Ann’s Choice, Liberty Commons Clubhouse, 30000 Anns Choice Way, Warminster PA 18974 for refreshments and hors d’oeuvres. In lieu of flower donations may be made to: Washington Crossing Council/BSA, One Scout Way, Doylestown PA 18901 or Ann’s Choice Benevolent Fund, 30000 Ann’s Choice Way, Warminster PA 18974 or the charity of your choice.
