Gorman, Terrance William

(August 21, 1946-March 14, 2017)

On Tuesday March 14th, 2017 Terry passed away in his home with his family by his side. Terry was 70 years old. Loving husband of Cathy Gorman (nee Liddle) of 44 years. Proud father of Amanda, Theresa and Kevin of Almonte. Loving Papa to Alexis, Reid, Bridgette and Liam. Brother to Theresa Carroll (nee O’Brien).  Predeceased by his parents John Gorman and Lila Gorman (nee Kavanagh and by first marriage of the late Alfred O’Brien), Sisters Nancy McBane, Mary Miller (nee O’Brien) and brothers Joe, Jack and Ray.

Fondly remembered by his sisters and brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, his euchre friends and his neighbours “The Gore Street Goats”. Special thanks to the nurses Kelsey, Terralyn, Krista, Leslie and Marilyn.

Terry spent much of his life in the service of others. Whether it was working alongside his friend and brother-in-law at the Almonte Ambulance or helping with the many organizations and committees he was a part of the (Children’s Aid Society, Highland Games, Almonte Senior Girls Softball, Deputy Reeve for Almonte Town Council and many more.) The most important things in Terry’s life were his family and friends (immediate and extended). He enjoyed good company, conversation and a game of cards. Terry was a natural-born storyteller and could hold a room waiting on every word until the end. Terry leaves behind a legacy of hard work, quick wit, great jokes and many more fond memories. Cheers to you Terry!
