Robert Wayne Gorham of Chester, MT passed away at 8:27pm on January 03, 2021. The cause of death was determined to be liver failure and complications from COPD.

Robert was born to Carol Gorham and Henry Cooper Bell, III on October 31, 1953. Robert was a member of the Army and served in the Vietnam War. For many years, he was employed by the railroad. As with many of his areas of expertise, Robert also taught himself to play the guitar, and had the opportunity to share a moment with Jimi Hendrix. Robert was engrossed in the counter-culture movements of the late 60s and early 70s. This was, of course, after he had already served his country in Vietnam. Fishing, panning for gold, and other outdoor activities shaped his varied interests.

Robert believed that for others, you could either feed them or make them laugh. Robert did both at the same time, with ease. Nobody really knows what Robert will do in heaven, because he is so multi-talented.
