Obituary for Thomas Gorman

Thomas Gorman Sr., age 84, of Stratford, beloved husband of Mary (Rafferty) Gorman, passed away Tuesday, December 13, 2016 in Stratford. Mr. Gorman was born June 22, 1932 in Lanarkshire, Scotland, son of the late Thomas and Kathleen (Brady) Gorman and had been a long time Stratford resident since 1963.

Prior to moving to the United States, Mr. Gorman was a coal mine worker in Armadale, Scotland. He played soccer for Whiterigg FC and was an avid Glascow Celtic Supporter. It was in Scotland where he found the love of his life, Mary, and was married in Caldercruix, Scotland in 1957.

He was a member of the Tartan Social Club, Gaelic American Club, Clan Campbell, and St. Mark's Men League. He was an usher at the 11:00 a.m. mass at St. Mark Church for over 20 years.

Thomas retired from Schick Safety Razor after 35 years. During retirement he loved spending time with his grandchildren. He was an avid sports fan who enjoyed watching Giants football and English Premier League Soccer. He particularly enjoyed his Friday afternoon lunches with his friends.

Survivors, in addition to his wife, include his son Thomas Gorman and his wife Laura of Stratford; two grandchildren, Andrew and Gabrielle Gorman; one sister, Kathleen Rea of Scotland; one brother, Edward Gorman of Scotland; and several nieces and nephews. Thomas will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
