Mr. Jesse “Big Eye” Gaston was born the 9th child of the late Willie Gaston, Sr. and the late Emily William Gaston on June 20, 1953. He received Christ at Mt. Gillard Baptist Chruch.

He was a proud graduate of George Washington Carver High School. He attended Alabama State University, where he played baseball. Big Eye was a person that helped more people then he hurt. He had a bulldog attitude, but a gentle sprit. There was nothing he would not do for friends and family. He would do more for friends then family at times. If you owed him some money and told him you were going to pay him on Monday, he would call you Monday morning before the bank opened.

He was preceded in death by brothers Jerry Gaskin Sr., Willie Jr., Frank Asberry, and John Gaston, sisters Jannie Mae Grant, Fannie Mae Gaston, and Lille Mae Felder.

Forever cherishing his memory is his devoted love, Michelle Archie, his children: Jacqueline Dix, Meagan Gaston, Jessica Gaston, Skyla Gaston all of Montgomery, AL; Antoinette Wallace of Mobile, AL; Japonica P. Keating of Chicago, Illinois, Simone Richardson of Atlanta, GA, Tim Broaden, Jalen Gaston, Juwon Gaston of Montgomery, AL; one sister Dorothy Gregory, mother-in-law Earlene S. Archie, daughter-in-law Shenea Long-Broaden of Montgomery, AL, brother-in-law Cedric Archie, devoted nephew Daran (Spud) Gaskin (Christy) of Montgomery, AL; a host of grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives , and friends all who will miss him dearly.
