William (Billy) Joseph Edward Gorman

July 1, 1968 - June 29, 2020


It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Billy Gorman,  peacefully on June 29, 2020 at the age of 51 of natural causes.  Billy lived in Abbotsford B.C. with his loving life partner Yvonne Halvorson.

Billy was the youngest of seven children,  the son of Muriel and the late Joe Gorman of Oakville.

Brother of Bev and Tom Gibbons.

Kevin and Beth Gorman.

Kim and Dan Deslauriers.

Cindy and Gary Gronfors.

Sherri and Ron Vandermolen.

Tammy Wyatt and Bruce Stevenson.

Billy will be missed by his step-daughter Ashley and grandson Nicholas.

He was a truly amazing uncle and great-uncle to many nieces and nephews. And he was loved by many aunts and uncles.

Billy adored his cat, Smudge.

Following the tradition of a Bronte boy, Billy was a loyal friend, protector and life of the party.

He was known as an extremely hard worker as a hydrovac and had many friends in the field.

We will miss the stories Billy shared but know that the storytelling will carry on.

Go Leafs Go.

Donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation can be made in Billy’s memory. Details about a celebration of life will be shared at a later date.

The family is collecting photos, videos,and messages that we will share in a tribute video at a later date, If you wish to contribute to the video please send to allykat3443@gmail.com
