Jason Ray Gilmore
Services for Jason Ray Gilmore, 43, of Pittsburg were held Thursday, Oct. 17, 2019 at Erman Smith Funeral Home Chapel, 315 Rusk St, Pittsburg, Texas. Jason Ray Gilmore was born in Longview, TX Sept. 18, 1976 and was tragically taken from this life in a wreck at the intersection of Loop 179 and CR 2106 in Pittsburg, on Oct. 10, 2019. Jason was raised by his loving parents, Ray and Jennifer Gilmore in Mt. Pleasant, Texas where he graduated from high school in 1995. Jason led an exciting life and touched the hearts of many people through friendship and business. Jason struggled by working sometimes two jobs to support his wife and three children while building his own company. Jason owned and operated Storage Solutions in Pittsburg for the past 18 years. Jason not only had his gift for salesmanship on his side but also his mother, father, and son-in-law helping him achieve his dreams of growing his company. A true family business. When Jason was not working, he enjoyed endless hours on the lake, hunting, fishing, searching for what he claimed as “lost treasures,” spending time with his family, or fixing things that were not broken. Jason is preceded in death by his wife, Dawn Gilmore. He is survived by his parents, Ray and Jennifer Gilmore; sister, Marla and husband, Barry Sheets; daughter, Lakin Gamble and husband, Ben, Maura Mallon, Kenzie Hogue and husband, Read; nieces, Kenadee, Brynn and Gentry. Jason also left behind eight grandkids, Cash, Tripp, Ransom, Maddox, Beau, Berkley, Olivia, and the newest four-month-old Hattie. Jason crammed a lot of living into his 43 years that we were blessed to have shared this journey with him. His smile, kind heart, infectious laugh, and loving embrace will be missed by many.
