Martin David Gorman

Martin Gorman, a longtime resident of New Rochelle, died on December 7th 2019. He was 90. Martin was born in Brooklyn on April 24, 1929, to the late Morris and Gertrude (Schwartz) Gorman.
Marty got his degree in accounting from Pace College prior to serving in the Army during the Korean War.
Marty dedicated his life to his family and his business, the Electronic Transformer Company in Paterson N.J. He provided employment as well as opportunities to grow, and supported many people in the community, changing lives of those he touched in a positive way. He encouraged his employees to advance, develop their skills and realize their potential even when they didn’t envision a future for themselves. He was a kind and generous man not only with his family, friends and business, but in every aspect of his life.
In his spare time, Marty and his lovely wife, Ethel, enjoyed spending time with friends. He loved to make people laugh or at least smile. Marty and Ethel both enjoyed the arts and supported music, dance and theater. He was a dedicated Knicks and Yankees fan and regularly attended their games. His favorite sport was paddleball, but he also played tennis, ran, and rode his bicycle. And then there was his passion for food. In addition to savoring a nice restaurant with family and/or friends, his favorite delicacies were hot dogs, french fries and decadent desserts, can’t leave that out!
Marty is survived by his 3 daughters Claudia Gorman Schachner, Jessica Taylor and Allison Gorman Nachtigal; his six grandchildren Alec, Marisa, Nicole, Matthew, Jarret and Alexia and his great grandchild Izzy.
