Of Boston, formerly of Liberta Antigua, West Indies who was born to the parents of James and Christie Gore, died peacefully surrounded by his family on October 17, 2022, at the age of 59. He is survived by his wife Andiella Gray.

Everyone knew him as Willie, the caring, kind-hearted, and devoted friend. He loved cooking, hiking, and camping, among many other fun activities. Willie was a Soldier for Christ and earned his stripes as a Master Guide, thus leading first the Berea Orion Pathfinder Club for many years. After a brief hiatus, as leadership was in his blood, Willie took on the challenge of starting the Roxbury Jaguars now known as The Waymark Jaguars Pathfinder Club. His devotion to Pathfinders was evident as he loved working with the youth, always encouraging them to strive for excellence for the Master.
Willie was always giving. In his travels around Boston, if he saw someone who was homeless, he would stop, offered words of encouragement, asked the person what they needed, offered to help in finding services, and brought food on a weekly basis.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around ~Leo Buscaglia~. This was the epitome of Willie.
Relatives and friends will honor and remember Willie’s life by gathering for a Memorial Service on Sunday, November 6, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. at The Waymark Seventh-day Adventist Church, 1048 Dorchester Avenue, Dorchester, MA 02125 followed by the repast. Information regarding the repast will be provided at a later date.
All are encouraged to follow The Waymark SDA Church protocols by wearing masks during the memorial.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Willie’s memory can be made to The Waymark SDA Church and mailed to P.O. Box 220810, Dorchester, MA 02122 or online at Adventist Giving under “Pathfinder Club” which will be shared amongst The Waymark Jaguars Pathfinder Club and Boston D.R.E.A.M. Academy, as he was deeply committed to the growth of young people.
God never promised a life without pain, laughter without tears or sun without rain. But He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and the light for the way, and for all who believe in His heaven above, He rewards their faith in His everlasting love. ~Author Unknown~
May he rest in eternal peace!
