He attended St. Joseph’s school in New Hampton and was a 1972 graduate from New Hampton High School. After high school, he worked at Sara Lee for a few years before going to work at Tri-Mark. After that, he went to work for what is now Pro Build in New Hampton. He worked there for many years and really enjoyed his job. He joked about retirement, but everyone knew he would never stop working because he liked his job and the people he worked with. In Bo’s younger years he really appreciated the outdoors. He would go camping and fishing quite often with different members of his family. You could often catch him cheering on the Kansas City Chiefs or watching a NASCAR race. He also liked to play cards. Bo always went to his mother’s house to help her out. She often had a list of things for him to do, ranging from changing a light bulb to getting groceries for her. He will be remembered by his nieces and nephews for always giving them a hard time. Bo is survived by his mother, Lorna Gorman of New Hampton, IA; three brothers, Gary (Julie) Gorman of New Hampton, IA, Curtis (Andrea) Gorman of Huntersville, NC, Dave Gorman of Charlotte, NC; one sister, Ruth (Alan) Gilbert of Ionia, IA; three nephews, Jason Gilbert, Chris (Whitney) Gorman, Cody Gorman; five nieces, Jenny (Chris) Hovey, Christine (Dan) Venem, Debbie (Brice) Schissel, Emily Gorman, Kelly Nearhood; five great-nephews, Owen, Elliott and Brayton Hovey, Ashton and Kale Venem. He was preceded in death by his father, Donald Gorman; one brother, Gene Gorman.

Memories Timeline


  1. My thoughts and prayers to the Gorman family. Bo always took the time to visit whenever we met up in a store or any where in town. I will miss the waves I always got from him when meeting on the streets. R.I.P.

  2. May the memories of Wayne console you in the next days. All our thoughts and prayers to his family. Jeanne and David Roder

  3. Bo will be missed. Deepest sympathy to the Gorman family with hugs and prayers. Many memories of Bo and all his brothers and R. Ball coming out the the Hruska farm. Steve and the boys played a lot of cards, the good old days!

  4. Lorna and family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time and the days to follow.
    It is always so hard to lose a loved one. Treasure the memories. God be with you all.

  5. Very sad to hear this news, my thoughts and prayers are with the Gorman family. Have many fond memories of Bo, cruising Main St. on our motorcycles was always a fun time. We played a lot of cards and drank a lot of barley pops! Life was fun with Bo and the rest of the crew. He will be missed and fondly remembered.

  6. I’m sorry to learn about Wayne’s death. I remember him as a smiling, laughing man. He was usually ready and willing to tell a joke. Now, I won’t be able to give him a “bad time” about growing old and even more and more bald. I remember one time he told me the story about getting to fill his deer hunting license. It was a long story, and when he finished, I was left wondering whether or not he had really acquired a deer –or if it was someone else. I still wonder.

    I wish we could attend Wayne’s funeral. I would like to pay my respects and visit with his family. However, with the blizzards we are getting in the Dakotas, in Iowa, and everywhere in between, we will not be able to attend. God will be smiling when he welcomes Wayne into heaven.
