Our “Champ” Robert (Bob) L. Gorringe, 93, passed away in the comfort of his own home on May 29, 2020, due to natural causes. Our hearts are broken.
Bob met the love of his life, Georgia, at the age of 11. They were married in 1947 and were blessed with 5 wonderful children. Together they celebrated 73 years of marriage.
Bob was a Jack of all trades, and a Master of many; always remaining active and sharp as a tack. Bob was a Supervisor at Western Electric (Mountain Bell) and was fortunate enough to retire at a young age. He was an avid fan of the Utah Jazz, Chevrolet, and Nascar. Bob was always passionate about his family trips to Las Vegas. Bob is a Veteran of the US Army.
Bob was a “Good” man, always providing for his wife and family. He was an excellent example to his children; teaching them respect, love, honesty, loyalty, integrity, and independence.
Bob is survived by his wife Georgia; his daughters Bobbie Posey (Bruce Hammon); Jackie Lunn (Terry); Charmaine Christy (Paul); son Dominique (Caroll Mackay); brother-in-law George (Butch) Mattox; sister-in-law Jessie Gorringe; numerous grandchildren; great grandchildren; and great great grandchildren; as well as his nieces and nephews. Bob was preceded in death by his son Rick; grandson Kazz; brothers Harry Jr. and Jack; sister Juanita (Wallace); and brother-in-law Raymond Wallace.
