Amado Anthony Gorham, 25, of Homestead, passed away Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at home. He was born August 6, 1994 in Oakland, California and was the son of Kathleen Joyce Gorham. Amado worked as a greeter at Walmart.  Amado found his foster father, Paul Hunter at Auberle of McKeesport. Amado ran up to Paul's car, at the time a complete stranger, as he was leaving from volunteering with other children. Amado yelled " Mr. Paul, Mr. Paul, I heard about you." Paul stopped the car, and the little boy barely tall enough to see in the car window said "Mr. Paul, will you foster me?" At that moment, Amado stole Paul's heart and shortly after fostering began.

 He is survived by his foster father, Paul Hunter of Greenock, foster brothers, Justin Sherlock and Robert Blazina of Greenock, foster grandparents, Paul and Joy Hunter of Greenock, foster aunt and uncle, Faith and Ken Lasica of Mt. Vernon, foster cousins, Christopher, Jason and Noelle as well as family and friends.  There is no visitation. Arrangements are by the Gilbert Funeral Home and Crematory, Inc., 6028 Smithfield Street, Boston, Elizabeth Township (412) 751-5000, Drew J. Gilbert, Director.  Condolences may be made at
