Mr. Stanley Bernard Gorman

Mr. Stanley Bernard Gorman, age 87, of Cedartown, GA, passed away Tuesday June 18, 2024, at his residence, with his loving family by his side.

Mr. Gorman was born in Cedartown on March 30, 1937 to the late Major Cyrus Gorman and the late Mrs. Paula Florine Bigger.

A 1955 graduate of Cedartown High School, Mr. Gorman spent much of his adult life as a Georgia State Patrol Trooper, retiring after 25 dedicated years of professional service.

In addition to his parents, Mr. Gorman is preceded in death by his loving wife, Karen Gorman; son, Timothy Lass; son-in-law, Richard Smith; and a grandchild, Audrey York.

Mr. Gorman is survived by his loving children, Tracy Wiese (Chris), Paulette Smith, Julie Shuman (Alan), and Elizabeth Lowery (Rick); sister, Nancy Floyd; grandchildren, Jason Shuman, April Hunter (Scott), Kevin York, Clint Ramey, Mikaelynn Brumit (Kevin); many great- and great-great grandchildren; and his loving Georgia State Patrol family.
