In Memory of (Uncle) Clint Gault

I had the unique opportunity to grow up in a very close-knit neighborhood. We all had keys to each other’s houses so borrowing and sharing things was a common occurrence. Clint was a part of this neighborhood. I may not be blood related to the Gaults or the other neighbors, but we were and still are an extended family. They were like an extra set of grandparents who wanted to be called Uncle Clint and Aunt Mary. That is East Walton Avenue.

My earliest memories of Uncle Clint and Aunt Mary were the days they would gather the three neighborhood kids (Marcus, Diane and myself) to cash in on their overflowing change jar. They showed us how to roll the coin in wrappers, then we got to split the money three ways.
Sunday morning coffee was a neighborhood tradition that was either held in Uncle Clint’s kitchen or on Liz’s patio during nice summer mornings. We’d wander over for coffee and donuts. Uncle Clint and Aunt Mary would always make sure the kids got the donut they wanted and lots of fun was always had!

Uncle Clint had a dry sense of humor as you all know. He was also a big teaser, but we all enjoyed being teased by Uncle Clint. It was a “rite of passage” and a way you knew you were family. On several occasions a neighborhood picnic would be held in Clint’s garage. We enjoyed eating together, celebrating together and laughing together. It was a great way to grow up for sure!

Uncle Clint was a husband, a Dad, a Grandpa, a Great-Grandpa, a friend and a neighbor. Most importantly he was loved!

To my Uncle Clint -- while I’m sad you’re gone what puts a smile on my face now is knowing you’re re- uniting with Aunt Mary. Please give her a big hug and kiss from us!

All my love,
Tracie (Heidler) Scott
