Mr. Stanley Mac Gorman, 79, of Lampasas passed away on Wednesday, July 4, 2018 in Lampasas, Texas. He was born on February 3, 1939.
A hard working man and fatherly foundation to a large and loving family to the very end, Stanley Mac Gorman was known by many names to many people. Mac to his friends, Stanley to his peers, Uncle Macaroni to imaginative nephews, Dad to his children, and PopPop or Papa Mac to his grandchildren. He was a born leader in all aspects of life, as executive with Southwestern Bell and AT&T, a business owner, and a spiritual guide for so many. He taught us all the value of perseverance through hardship and adversity, no matter how difficult or heartbreaking your trials may be. While he is now with God, his legacy lives on through his family reminding us every day the love and hard work it takes to be a true servant of God. Every July 4th, the celebration of Independence will take a new meaning for us, not just a celebration of American Independence, but one true American’s freedom from a struggling body, free to finally join his Father in heaven.
He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 39 years, Nell Sloan Gorman, his parents, Stanley and Marguerite Gorman.
