Marshall Gore

October 15, 1940 — October 14, 2020

Marshall D. Gore, 79, of Owensboro passed away October 14, 2020 at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital. He was born in Owensboro on October 15, 1940 to the late James Small and Evelyn Webster Gore. Marshall graduated in the class of 1958 at Utica High School and went on to college at Western Kentucky for one year. After college, Marshall went on to work at Owensboro’s Messenger Inquirer as a pressman and retired after 48 years. He was a member of the Methodist faith. Marshall loved being outdoors, yard work, and was a collector of all things. He enjoyed talking to people, and he did not know a stranger. Marshall was a man of great integrity and honor, and would do anything for his family, whom he loved dearly.

Aside from his parents, Marshall is survived by his son, Marshall (Marsh) Gore, Jr., his daughter-in-law, Sandra Gore; his grandson, Logan Gore; and his former wife and best friend, Betty Gore.
