Joseph B. Gogarty, 47


Joseph B. Gogarty, 47, of Laurel, Del. passed away Friday, Feb. 5, 2010, at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital Seaford, Del. He loved cars, repairing automobiles, comedies and Billy Joel. He was an avid M&M memorabilia collector. Above all, he loved his family, and would do anything for anybody. He always kidded and his favorite saying was, “You got me in trouble again, Draven.” He was someone you would want as your best friend. Gogarty was a mold- and dye-maker.
Gogarty is survived by his parents, Richard and Shirley Ann Gogarty of Millsboro, Delaware; his wife of 29 years, Karen Gogarty; sons, Kevin Joseph, and Kenneth John Gogarty both of Laurel, Del.; daughters, Kristen Heck and husband Joshua Heck of Millsboro, Del. and Stormy Grothe of Oklahoma City, Okla.; a brother, Richard Joseph Gogarty and wife Donna of East Rockaway, N.Y.; one grandson, Draven-Spencer A. Heck and one on the way. He is also survived by his two canine friends, Chico and Princess.
Services were set for Thursday, Feb. 11, 2010 at 11 a.m. at Watson Funeral Home 211 Washington St., Millsboro, Del. Burial will be private.
