Gorman J. DeGrave, Jr. passed away on May 29, 2019 surrounded by his family and friends. He is survived by his loving wife, Trish and his children: Kevin, Ryan, Angie, Meghan, and Chris. Gorman also leaves behind five grandchildren. Gorman was born on January 4, 1953 to Elaine and Gorman J. DeGrave in Rochester, New York. The family moved to California in 1965 and became residents of Orange County the following year. Gorman graduated from Saddleback High School in 1970 and Western State College of Law in 1993. He was an accomplished and respected lawyer, who always conducted himself with civility and integrity.  On the weekends, Gorman enjoyed spending time with family, weekend get aways with Trish, summers on the lake, dinners with friends and family, watching his beloved Notre Dame Fighting Irish beat USC, and planning the next chapter of his life with Trish. Funeral mass at La Purisima Catholic Church in Orange on June 11, 2019 at 9:45 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the DeGrave family requests that you donate to Gorman’s favorite charity, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

    Gorman was a man of character, and someone I deeply respected. He was a mentor to me when I first began my journey as an attorney. Gorman made an impact in this world and in people's hearts, not by any extraordinary act, but just by the way he carried himself and treated others in his daily life. You will be dearly missed sir.

    Gorman, "you have competed well, you have finished the race, you have kept the faith." When the time comes, maybe you could put in a good word for me. I miss you, brother!
