Carl Gordon Gore was born on December 11, 1962, in Omaha, Nebraska to Daniel and Marjorie Jean (Heitmann) Gore. He attended school in Omaha until he decided to begin his roofing career. Carl spent many years as a roofer and worked his way up to be the foreman. In 1996, Carl underwent a double kidney transplant. Because of this, he didn’t have an easy life, but he worked hard to make the most out of every day he had.
Carl cherished the outdoors. He loved camping, fishing, the shooting range and going to the sandhills. He enjoyed keeping up with people on Facebook and had a great sense of humor. Most of all, he loved the time he had with his nieces and nephews. He enjoyed taking them places and telling them stories to help grow their imagination, especially about Bigfoot.
Carl died on Monday, November 29, 2021, at UNMC in Omaha, Nebraska at the age of 58 years, 11 months and 18 days.
