Ben Charles Gomm Obituary
Ben Charles Gomm, age 31 passed away unexpectedly Jan. 18 2018 at his home in Blackfoot Idaho.
Ben was born July 7 1986, to Ben Gomm Sr. of Shelley Idaho, and Donella Stahn of Idaho Falls Idaho.
Brother to Mariah Jensen Coleman, Rose Christman, Oliane Scott, Nathan Stahn, Emily Stahn, Donella McGiff, Christian Stahn, Daniel Stahn and Ramon Valentine.
Ben grew up in East Idaho and attended Blackfoot and Hillcrest high schools. After he earned his Eagle Scout Award, he graduated early and joined the Army National Guard to serve his country.
Ben genuinely loved and cared for anyone he came in contact with. He thought of friends as family, and he made sure you knew it.
He loved with all of his heart, and was compassionate beyond words. He was smart, artistic, cheerful and funny. He loved laughter, comedy, storytelling and relentless teasing.
Ben married Shannon Corradi Oct. 31 2012 and had two beautiful children, a daughter Charlie Gomm and son Raye Gomm.
Ben served as a Specialist with his brothers and friends in the Army Nation Guard with the 116th infantry, Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was awarded several letters of Commendation and Achievement.
Ben's true talents showed best when working with his hands. He worked as a mechanic, pattern maker, machinist, gun smith, carpenter and much more.
He lived for music, fishing, hunting, camping and spending time with his family and friends. Being a father brought him an enormous amount of joy.
He loved his children and his many nieces and nephews. Ben was a teacher and a friend. He could be found on his hands and knees playing trucks, Barbies or baiting a fishing hook. Ben was Hero kind of brother who adored his sisters.
Quick to come to the rescue, change a tire or lend a helping hand.
