Obituary

Funeral services for Edward J. Gorre, age 75, of Enid, will be 10:00 am, Monday, August 31, 2020 at the Central Christian Church with Rev. Tom Stanley and Rev. Don Johnson officiating. Burial with military honors provided by the United States Army will follow in Memorial Park Cemetery. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home.
Ed was born June 25, 1945 in Enid, Oklahoma, and graduated from Enid High School. He attended Phillips University where he pursued and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting. He worked for Conoco in Ponca City, OK for 19 years and then went to Colorado until he returned to Enid to care for his mother, Juanita Martin. He worked at NORSE for three years before taking a job as a social worker for the Department of Human Services Child Welfare Division where he worked for 21 years until he retired. While living in Ponca City, Ed was very active coaching his son Jim’s PCJB Baseball League, and soccer team. He loved to play tennis with his son Kelly, and also play racquetball and golf. He was a member of Central Christian Church where he served as a Deacon and Elder. He served the Lord in many ways, including a mission trip to Honduras and the Dominican Republic twice. He was an active participant in the Foster Feet Program which provides shoes for needy school children and the Canned Food Drive at Central Christian Church; he enjoyed helping people and had a servant’s heart and was a natural caregiver. Ed was a member of the Gideons; he believed everyone should have an opportunity to hear the word of God as he handed out bibles.
He is preceded in death by his mother, Juanita Martin; son, Kelly Gorre; two brothers, Robert and Ray Gorre; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He is survived by his son Jim Gorre, of Oklahoma City; three grandchildren, Kurtis Gorre and wife Robyn, of Statesboro, GA; Devon Gorre, of Enid; Catelynne Gorre of Murfreesboro, TN; three great-grandchildren, Dean, Tommy and Ryan Gorre; sister-in-law Dorothy (Gorre) Gregory, of Enid; and dear friend, Judy Mason, of Enid.
Ed was one of a kind, and deeply interested in people; he easily conveyed his desire to help and enrich other people’s lives in some way, he will be greatly missed by everyone. May he rest in peace.
Memorial contributions in Ed’s name may be made to Enid Joint Recreation Triad, the Gideon’s or the Central Christian Church Foster Feet Program with Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home serving as custodian of the funds.

I met Eddie through Rick and Linda (Cecil) Miles on a couple of trips: one from Budapest to Bucharest and another from Southern Italy to Sicily. We four were booked on another trip to Costa Rica (which was cancelled) and we were all looking forward to a future trip to Northern Spain. Eddie was the perfect traveling companion - friendly, fun, kind, and wonderful company. He will be missed.

Eddie went on a cruise on the Danube In 2018 and on a tour to Italy in 2019 with me and Rick and another friend. It was wonderful to see his delight in exploring the great cathedrals of Europe. He loved walking the ancient streets of Pompeii and climbing around one of the craters on Mt. Etna. From the early ‘50s, Eddie was like family to me and my brothers. We loved his visits and phone chats. We are going to miss him acutely.

My name is Mayme Gungoll Patnaude. I worked with Ed for many years. Ed had a great sense of humor. My favorite memory of Ed was the time he dressed up as a priest and me as a school girl. We won the Halloween contest. I know live in Omaha but if I was closer I would attend the services. Ed was a great guy and a wonderful co worker.
