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.
