Robert (Rob) K. Foreman, died at Desert Springs Hospital, Las Vegas, Nevada at 6:52 in the evening on August 30, 2021, at the age of 48. He was born on August 4, 1973, in Kansas City, Missouri.
He is predeceased by his grandparents Albert H. and Agnes (Grimes) Foreman, and Francis E. and Alfreda M. (Williams) Gomez of Peekskill, NY. He is survived by his mother, Dr. Judith M. Gomez of Salt Point, NY and his father Rodger K. Foreman and stepmother Linda Foreman, of Cape Coral, Florida, his brother Grant A. Hamel, his wife Katie and their children, Harrison, Savannah, Julianna, and his loving sister Ivana Joy Gomez. He is lovingly remembered and will be missed by nineteen aunts and uncles, twenty-one cousins, many relatives, and loyal friends.
Robert spent his formative years in Blue Springs and Eagle Rock, Missouri, and Eureka Springs, Arkansas where he first became involved in community and summer theater. Thrilled to play King of the Winged Monkeys as a young teen he recognized his niche early and lived his dream. Graduating with a B.A. from Columbia University, Chicago, Illinois he pursued acting, writing screenplays and producing films throughout his career. His closest and favorite mentor was Ed Asner, also born in K.C., who in a twist of irony predeceased him by one day though they would not learn of one another’s fate. Often in connection with his personal journey, Robert was infinitely intrigued by science and the laws of the universe, embracing the mystery of the cosmos in all its wonderment.
His family will hold a gathering in the Spring to honor his life and share fond and happy memories.
