Frank Gorman Dies Suddenly in Casper Thursday
Frank A. Gorman, 75, of Casper, a well known man in Lusk and Lance Creek, died suddenly in Casper about 5:00 p.m. last Thursday. Early that day he had suffered a heart attack while at his home and was taken to the Memorial Hospital there.
Since his death many stories about his generosity have been told. He was reared in mining towns and spent many years in the oil fields and among other things was at one time a professional prize fighter.
Born in Maine, he came to Cripple Creek, Colo. in the early part of the century. In 1917 he established the Gorman Trucking Co. in Casper. He later became a contractor in Lance Creek and maintained the business until a few years ago.
He was a member of the Lusk Elks Lodge and Cripple Creek Knight of Columbus. He belonged to St. Anthony's Roman Catholic Church of Casper where Requiem Mass was held Monday at 8:a.m. Interment was made in Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens, Denver Tuesday.
He is survived by his wife, Pearl; a daughter, Mrs. James Morgan, Denver; and six sisters and one brother. One daughter preceded him in death.
Several friends of Mr. Gorman from Lusk and Lance Creek attended the services in Casper Monday morning. James Groves and Bud McDaniel of Lance Creek were pallbearers and Herb Klindt, George Gibson, and Dr. Walter Reckling of Lusk were honorary pallbearers.
