This will sound crazy but for some reason this is a big memory of Dr. Gaunt. Bruce Springstreen had just be come poplar with "Born in the USA". Dr. Gaunt did not understand why he had to "yell" everything he sang. So I remember Dr. Gaunt singing , "Born in the USA". He made me laugh. He was always a professional gentlemen with whom to work.

Dr Gaunt was a gentle soul who made his OR staff feel appreciated in the team efforts to make every individual patient and their surgery top priority. As a new RN in June of '71, he was a positive role model for training and educating new staff, making us feel valued in an arena that could be daunting. His kindness to staff and patients never changed through his decades of service. I personally feel so fortunate to have worked with him for many years. RIP.

I first met Dr. Gaunt when I was a new nurse at Winchester Hospital. The smile he has in the photo in his obituary was the exact smile he wore at the hospital. He was a kind physician, not one who thought he was better than other staff. We need more like him.
