EAST BRUNSWICK - WILLIAM C. GORMAN passed away on Wednesday, September 21, 2022, at Princeton Medical Center in Plainsboro. He was 87 years old.

Born in Jersey City, to William A. and Ruth (née Golden), he resided in Jersey City until settling his young family in East Brunswick almost 60 years ago.

William began his career with Texaco in Bayonne in 1957 as a draftsman, progressing to plant manager, during his almost 40 years with the company. While working full time, he furthered his education by earning a Bachelor of Science Degree from Rutgers University in 1978.

A proud U.S. Army veteran, he enjoyed carpentry, DIY protects, and was a lifelong avid reader.

William was predeceased by his wife of 37 years, Barbara (née DeGroff) in 1993; his father, William A. Gorman; his mother, Ruth; his step-father, James L Trainor and his sister, Joan Gilliam (née Gorman).

Surviving are his son, William H. Gorman of NH; his daughters, Janet Gorman of NJ, and Kathy and her husband, Ken VanTassell, of MA; his grandson, Ken and his wife, Laura, and his great-grandchild, Theo of MA; his half-siblings, James Jr, Robert Trainor, Carol Gibson, Ruth Dygan, and Maureen Salamone.
