James Gorin Life Story

Verse: "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the Shadow of the Almighty." Psalm 91:1 NIV

James (Jim) Edwin Gorin passed away early Thursday, March 28th, after an extended illness. He is survived by his loving wife, Elizabeth. They spent all of their 62 years together making life better for one another and for countless others. He is survived by his son, Gregg Gorin, of Marshall. He is also survived by his daughter, Holly Smith and son-in-law, Chris Smith, of College Station-also his grandchildren, Noah Smith, Kylie and Jonas Land, Tabor Smith and Sydney Smith, all of College Station. In addition, he is survived by twenty nieces and nephews, as well as three sisters-in-law. Truth be told, Jim was family to many more!
Proceeding him in death are his parents, Harry and Vivian Gorin of Brighton, IL, his brothers, Don (of Boston, MA), Ed (of Piasa, IL) and Gary (of Shreveport, LA). Also, his in-laws, Ed and Eleanor Dunston of Godfrey, IL.
Jim was born in Brighton, IL, and a graduate of Southwestern High School. He worked for General Motors in St. Louis, MO and Shreveport, LA for over 50 years. He loved to take care of and provided well for his family and his land. He loved football and NASCAR. He also loved to make the best barbeque ever for his family. He loved to have dinner with his many friends. And he loved to play golf with his friends at the country club.
We will all feel the hole he left behind, but we know Jim is with his Savior now.
