Herman was born and raised in Attleboro, MA son of the late Herman F. Sr. and Lucy (Trottier) Gorman. Mr. Gorman served in the Army during WW II in the 292nd Engineer Combat Battalion in the European Theater and Battle of the Bulge. After his discharge in 1946 he returned home and went to work for the Attleboro Fire Department for the next 30 years retiring in 1976. As his second career he became a licensed Realtor in Attleboro and on Cape Cod where his involvement with people enriched his days.
He was a long time member of the Attleboro Elks. He also enjoyed being by the water fishing, shellfishing, reading, and especially riding his bicycle to the pier at Gray’s Beach as well as music, dancing and cars. Family gatherings and traveling were also an important part of his life.
As a result of the ongoing health crisis in the world and with genuine concern for the people, memorial services will be held at a later date.
The Gorman family would like to thank the staff at Cape Cod Hospital and Mayflower Place Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for the care and grateful support given to their father.
In lieu of flowers, a contribution to a charity of your choice in his memory would be appreciated.
