Glen Gore

Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Sep 12, 1951

Glen A. Gore, 67, Allouez resident, died Monday, April 22, 2019, at a local hospital following a five-year battle with cancer.  He was born September 12, 1951, in Milwaukee, to the late Gerald and Irene (Stankiewicz) Gore. Glen attended St. Mary of the Angels & Allouez Grade School and graduated from Green Bay East High School in 1969. Glen married the former Grace Rentmeester on December 12, 1970, at St. Mary of the Angels Catholic Church.  They shared 48 wonderful years together.

 Glen was employed as a steamfitter with Tweet-Garot Plumbing and the Steamfitters Union Local 400 until his retirement. Glen was a true sports fan.  He loved watching all sports and attending his grandchildren’s sporting events.  He played AAA softball for several years and has many stories of his little league days.  Glen enjoyed spending time with family and friends especially during his winters in Sarasota.  He looked forward to the simple things in life: a good old fashion, listening to music, watching the deer in the backyard, sitting around the campfire and grilling with family.

 Glen will be remembered as a kind and caring husband, father and grandfather.  He is survived by his wife, Grace and their three children: Gina (Mike) Jensen; Greg Gore, all of Allouez and Geri (Danny) Greene, Sarasota, FL; four grandchildren: Tommy and Will Jensen and Riley and Hailey Greene; his in-laws: Carol (Wes) De Grand, Green Bay; Gloria MacDonald, Lakeland, FL; Wayne (Jane) Rentmeester, Sarasota, FL; Janet (Beaver) Miller, Port St. Lucie, FL and Paul (Lori) Rentmeester, Green Bay; Sister-in-law, Myrna Gore; and his                         nieces and nephews.

 He was preceded in death by his in-laws, Francis and Elizabeth Rentmeester and brother, Terrance Gore, two brothers-in-law, Dale Rentmeester and Rod MacDonald.
