Marty Alton Gore was born to Alton and Lavon (Krows) Gore on October 20, 1970 in Mooreland, OK. He attended Seiling Public Schools and graduated in 1989. He was a true Wildcat and played football, basketball, and baseball. He was a member of the 1988 State Championship Seiling Football Team.
During high school he worked at the family owned Phillips 66 station which he and his brothers later ran as Gore’s 66. After graduation, Marty moved to Norman, OK to pursue a degree in political science.
It was while at the University of Oklahoma that he met and later married Amy Sue Wilson on October 11, 1997. Together, they raised two wonderful boys, Hogan and Graham. Although they began their business, Gore Exploration, in Edmond, OK, in 2005, Marty and Amy moved back to Marty’s hometown of Seiling in 2008 where they wanted to raise their boys. They established their oil and gas business, a beautiful home and a community of friendships.
Marty loved sports. He loved playing them in high school, attending major league baseball and he especially enjoyed coaching his boys in little league. As the boys grew older, Marty enjoyed golfing with his sons, attending OU football games with Amy and the boys, and spending his summers with his friends and family.
One of Marty’s most cherished traditions began in 2009 when he and Amy began taking Hogan and Graham to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska and has continued every year since. They even began picking the winning teams pre-season and making a contest of it; however, Marty only won once, and he usually came in last. This past summer he took a trip to Europe with Hogan and Graham and explored six countries where they made memories that will last forever.
