Obituary of Ralph Russell Gore

It is with profound sadness that the family of Ralph Russell Gore Jr. announce his passing on Saturday, August 7, 2021 in the Jubilee Home, Lloydminster at the age of 75 years. Our Dad, Ralph Gore Jr., was born in Billings, Montana on February 25, 1946. Dad’s younger years were spent in various places across the United States of America with family. In 1968 Dad came to Canada and travelled through the provinces until he moved to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. In 1970 he met and married Bernice Cook of Onion Lake, Saskatchewan. Throughout 12 years together they shared a home with 6 children. Around 1984 Dad took his two girls, Roxy and Nicki, to raise on his own. Dad was also a proud long-haul semi driver for over 30 years, taking him all over Canada and the U.S.A.; he loved the open road. Dad had a great love for his children, grand-children and great-grandchildren. One thing that everyone knows about Dad was his sense of humour and telling jokes! In his later years everywhere he went on his scooter he made people laugh. Dad always made sure he was present in all ways and events to do with his family. We are all very grateful to have had such an amazing Dad. He left us all with so many good memories, that we will cherish always and forever.
