Dr. Charles Edward Gant Jr. 72, died on October 17, in Chevy Chase, Maryland.
“Charlie” was the son of the late Charles and Ella Gant and graduated from Millville High School in 1968 where he was an accomplished athlete in basketball and tennis, and an outstanding clarinetist, concert master in the New Jersey All-State Band. As a tennis player, he participated in the Timex Watch Tour in Florida during the 1970’s.
