Our loved one, John Anthony Gore, departed this life at the age of 48 on Wednesday, January 24, 2024.  John, AKA “Johnny G”, was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, primarily on the north end.

After graduating from Fort Hayes High School, he went on to serve 3.5 years in the United States Marine Corps. Afterward, John became a jack of all trades, working a variety of skilled labor jobs around the city. John knew no strangers! He lit up the room upon entering it. He had a fun and magnetic personality, even when he was at his lowest. He was always trying to encourage others,
and he spoke positively about traveling and getting more out of life. Nonetheless, his proudest achievement was being a dad!

Precious memories will forever be cherished by his mother, Norma Jean Gore; his beloved and beautiful daughters, Jayden (14) and Justice Gore (10). He also leaves behind a legacy of unforgettable memories with wife, Jamie Hewitt-Gore; companion, Crystal Brown; aunt, Joann (Harvey) Harris; uncles, Calvin Brown Sr., William (Donella) Hawthorne Jr.; nephews, Antoyne White, Alex White, Kingston Laster, Pete White, Deondre White, and Malik White; niece, Heaven Whiteand a multitude of loving cousins and other relatives near and far; bonus kids, Toni Clark, Isabel and Ryan Volosky; big brother-in-Love, Mark Small; childhood best friend, James Wynn.

John was preceded in death by his father, Charles Gore; sister, Cassandra White-Laster; brother, Jerry (Junebug) White.

Gone, but never forgotten! We love you, John

    My name is Carla Gore-Tutt. John was my little brother. My father‘s name was Charles Gore! Jean I send my condolences to you, Jamie, and Jayden and Justice and the rest of the family. I remember coming down every summer to stay with Jean and my father and John and Junebug and Cassandra. I can only say that you guys were wonderful and welcoming family as we grew up. I ran into John at a store we both couldn’t believe it. We hugged in a BP store and people were like that’s not your sister that’s not your brother and we laughed hugged And I was able to go and meet his family Jamie and a there little girls ! John was a remarkable person. I remember we went to Amish country and that was one of the best days that I had in my life spending time with my brother and my father. John never met a stranger. He was always kind and attentive, and his smile always did something, even though we were not close as we grew up as adults every time we seen each other it was like we never skipped a beat and I just want to say GOD and the rest of his passing family members are going to have a joyous day up there(in heaven). You will never be forgotten! Love, Carla!
