Obituary for David T. Gilmore

David T. Gilmore, age 79 of Harrah, Oklahoma, passed this life on Sunday, January 14, 2018 at home following a brief illness. He was born the son of David O. Gilmore and Ada Gilmore on June 24, 1938 in Middletown, New York, in a taxi cab on the way to the hospital. He gave his family one good day where he rebounded and was mentally sharp. We are thankful for that.
He was a Navy veteran who was a POW in Korea for six months before he escaped. His usual occupation was being a truck driver. He was driving one ton trucks by age 12 with the help of blocks on his feet. His CB handle was the “Flyer” because he was always speeding to get to his next destination. He was a jokester and he called speeding tickets “Go Fast Permits” after the fact. He loved giving people a hard time. His other jobs included farmer, cook and cashier for the VA in Hot Springs, South Dakota.
Surviving family include his wife, Mary J. Gilmore of Harrah, Oklahoma; his stepson, Ralph S. Main III and his wife Jessica also of Harrah, Oklahoma; granddaughters, Amber May, Hollie Nissen and Makenna May; brothers, Robert Gilmore and his wife Jean of Rapid City, South Dakota, and Larry Gilmore and his wife Mary Ann, also of Rapid City, South Dakota. Also surviving are many nieces and nephews.
