Obituary for Steven D. Gaunt

Stephen D. Gaunt, a lifelong resident of Johnston, affectionately known to many as Stevatz, Gaunt or 28, passed away unexpectedly in his home on Sunday, November 19, 2017. Born in Providence, he was the son of Douglas and Pamela (Blanding) Gaunt. Steve worked for Wesco Oil for over 20 years as a truck driver. Mr. Gaunt coached Johnston Youth Football for eight years. He loved his family and friends with a passion and never said the word NO when it came to either. He was always there to lend a hand no matter what. Mr. Gaunt was inducted into the Johnston High School undefeated State Champoinship Football Team. Steve never did anything half speed; it was all or nothing. We have a millennial word to describe him; it's 'BEAST MODE.' He was a fierce competitor and a force to be reckoned with on any field. He was part of a great tradition called MUDBOWL which takes place in North Conway, New Hampshire every September. He was also inducted into the Mudbowl Hall of Fame in 2013. Steve played on several flag football and softball teams; Cumberland Muckaneers, Undertakers, Raw Dawgs and Rhode Iceland Angels. He had a dream which fell short. It was to live in the southern most part of the east coast called Key West, FL. He took several family trips to this little island of sunshine and happiness, creating memories that will carry on through Kim, little Steven - a.k.a. Knucklehead and Haley - a.k.a. Daddy's Little Girl. Besides his parents, he is survived by the beloved mother of his children Kimberly Trazi-Gaunt; his namesake Steven D. Gaunt Jr.; his daughter Haley J. Gaunt; all of Johnston; brother Robert J. Gaunt and his girlfriend Katie Hagen, both of Greenville; maternal grandfather John Blanding of Sebastian, FL; paternal grandmother Nellie Frances Gaunt and his favorite uncle and friend Robert Blanding of Sebastian, FL. The Funeral Service will be held Monday, November 27 at 7 PM in the JONES-WALTON-SHERIDAN Funeral Home, 1895 Broad Street at Park Avenue, Cranston. Relatives and friends are invited and may call from 4-7 PM. Burial will be private at the request of the family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to the Steven D. Gaunt Memorial Golf Tournament. Arrangements are entrusted to both the Boucher Funeral Home and Jones-Walton-Sheridan Funeral Home.
