Earl Lee Gilmore, 78, of Shawnee, Oklahoma passed away on April 26th of 2022.


Earl was born on March 27, 1944, to Ruby Jewell and Albert Mathis Gilmore in Shawnee, Oklahoma.


A lifetime long haul truck driver, Earl began his lengthy career driving for Red Wallace.

Earl met his wife, Cecilia, in 1960 and they were married December 8th of 1970. Together they raised their four children and helped raise many others who came into their home. Earl was blessed with a houseful of grandchildren, from both his own children and those who were always welcome in his home. All of his grandchildren loved playing in and getting to ride in the semi-trucks when visiting Earl.

Those left to cherish his memory are his wife Cecilia, his brothers Don and Larry, his sister Ruby Ann, his daughters Angie and Tina, his sons Albert and Allen, his grandchildren Dylan, Cheyenne, Jace, Santana, and soon to be born Selena, as well as numerous other family and friends.
