In Loving Memory Of
Joseph Alonzo Goguen
1945 ~ 2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father, Joseph Goguen, 78, on Tuesday, September 5th, 2023 at the Moncton Hospital.

Born in Irishtown, he was the son of the late Aurèle and the late Régina Goguen (Poirier).

Joseph will be sadly missed by his daughters: Charlene Goguen (Basil Petitpas) of Halifax, Lisa (Odilon) Costa of Milford, MA; his son, James Goguen (Josée Laplante) of Grand Barachois; his grandchildren: Juliana, Dilon, Ella, Jacqueline, and Rosalie; his four legged girl, Molly;  his sisters: Thérèse (late Yvon) Arsenault of Moncton, Jeannette (late Alfred) Leger of Dieppe, Norma (late Raymond) Cormier of Cocagne, and Cécile (late Réginald) McGraw of Moncton; as well as many nieces and nephews.

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his loving wife, Carol; his three brothers: Réginald, Gerard, and Desiré; as well as five sisters: Mildred, Geneva, Irène, Germaine, and Mary.

Joseph was a family man, a proud father and grandfather to all of his children. He loved spending his days outdoors fishing, hunting, or gardening.

  3. Dear Charlene, Lisa, and James, I am very sorry for your loss. I remember all the times that I, and my family, spent at your house on Irishtown Road. To be honest, as a kid, I did not enjoy going there on a Saturday and working on the farm, especially when we had to watch your father cut off the heads of the chickens and then watch them run around, headless, for a minute or two! But, I did enjoy everything else. Your father (and mother) were always kind to me. I remember your father as being a big kid and liking to horse around. He will be missed. Love, your cousin, Dave Goguen.

  4. Our deepest sympathy. Uncle Joe was always a happy person to be around with. He use to like to tease me and I enjoyed bantering around with him. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.

  5. Charlene, Lisa & Jimmy…my heart is with you all. I’ll never forget your parents. They meant so much to me. So very sorry for your loss. I remember us kids on the roof of the barn helping Dad snap the red chalk line. He seemed intimidating but he truly was a pussy cat. I’ll always hear your parents voices. Much love, Lisa
