Robert E. “Bob” Gorman, 87, of Wethersfield, loving husband to Alice (Nagle) Gorman, peacefully passed away Sunday, December 22, 2019 at St. Francis Hospital. Bob was born August 30, 1932 in Hartford, one of two sons to the late Harold & Harriett (Magnuson) Gorman. He was raised in West Hartford, attended West Hartford schools, graduating from Hall High.

Bob was truly a wonderful human being. I cannot say enough about him for all the years we worked together first at United Bank and then Fleet. He had all the very best virtues being kind, intelligent, hard working, honest and he was one of the most humble people I have ever known. I am so sorry I was not able to be in touch with him in recent years, but that will never lessen my admiration for Bob. Alice and his family please know I am thinking of you and you have my prayers.

All my very best, Hobey Hyde, West Hartford.

I knew Bob for only a short time. He was happiest watching the Yankees and the Patriots. He could recite any number of statistics and knew the history of the players on the team. He told me he played baseball as a pitcher in school many years ago. No wonder he was an avid baseball fan. He will be dearly missed by his wife Alice. Bob, may you rest in peace.
