HV Minter, a resident of Irving, Texas for 60 years, passed away June 22, 2020 at the age of 87. He was home, surrounded by his family. He was born October 19, 1932, in Red River County, Texas, to parents Chester and Gladys Minter. HV had many hobbies including bowling and fishing. He coached boy’s baseball for IBBA back in the 60’s. But his favorite time was the time he spent with his family. He was the proud owner of Minter’s Texaco in Irving, Texas for 25 years, from 1970 until 1995. He also spent 14 years as a school crossing guard at Townley Elementary School where he enjoyed every child and knew them all by name. HV shared his love for his “whole family” with his wife, Betty. They were married for 65 years.

HV is preceded in death by his father, William Chester Minter, mother, Gladys Rhea Minter, brother, Bobby Rhea Minter, and infant daughter, Janice Marie Minter. He is survived by his wife, Betty Minter; son, Johnnie Minter and wife Marla; son, Jerry Minter and wife Tammy; 4 grandchildren; 4 great grandchildren; 10 sisters-in-law, 4 brothers-in-law; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and lifelong friends.

HV loved to make others smile, so every time you think of him, smile!

Betty and Jerry,
I had no idea that HV passed away. I am so saddened to find this out. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all as you heal from such a great loss for your family. He is probably already on a Heavenly bowling team with my Mom, Dad and David! May God wrap his loving arms around you all and comfort you each and every day.

HV (We just called him, "Minter") was truly one of the good guys. We did business with him for 15-20 years. He is the only person we ever knew who could collect money from us and make us laugh at the same time. We are very sad to read about his passing.

Dear Betty, please know that when Tanya and I joined Oak View Baptist Church, it was HV who stood out as one of the first people we knew and came to love. He and I always joked about him being HV and me being R.V. He remained that fixture of Christian love and merriment throughout the years of calling him a friend and Brother in Christ. When I remarried after Tanya's death, my new wife Charlotte took to HV immediately as he did her. She always made it a point to see him sitting outside the sanctuary before she headed over to our Life Group class. We pray for your and the rest of the family at this time and give thanks to God for HV's witness while here in his temporary home. Praise be that the home is now eternal and different, but the laughter, smile, and love he displayed here will also remain on display where he is now before his savior and those family members and friends he is now celebrating being reunited with.
