December 31, 2021, 55, Goldsboro –
David Charles Hogarty, D.O., 55, passed away Friday, December 31, 2021 at Kitty Askins Hospice Center. Born in Washington, D.C. on November 20, 1966, he was the son of Margaret McCluskey Hogarty and the late Thomas Felix Hogarty.
In addition to his mother, Dave is survived by his wife of twenty-two years, Suneya Gupta Hogarty, D.O.; his pride and joy: his children, Sahil Hogarty, Meher Hogarty, and Kirina Hogarty; brother, Mark Hogarty and wife, Djenaba; and his in-laws, J.D. Gupta, M.D. and Gool K. Gupta, M.D.
Dave, as he was known by his friends and family, was community-oriented. Scouting was dear to his heart, as he served as Scoutmaster for Boy Scout Troop 7, presiding over eleven Eagle Scout Ceremonies. Dave was extremely proud to see both of his sons achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. He also served on the Military Affairs Committee through the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce to support Seymour Johnson Air Force Base.
Dave, along with his wife, Suneya, were graduates of Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, Missouri. The opportunity to serve the citizens of Wayne and surrounding counties as a physician brought an abundance of joy to Dave’s life. With a caring and compassionate demeanor, Dave served his patients as an extension of his family and he loved them all.
Dave relished in the beauty of nature. He spent countless hours bird-watching, one of his favorite pastimes.
A celebration of Dave’s life and service to his fellow man will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 8, 2022 in the chapel of Seymour Funeral Home. Visitation with the family will follow the service at the funeral home. The family respectfully requests those attending the service to wear a face covering and practice social distancing.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be directed to Kitty Askins Hospice Center, 107 Handley Park Court, Goldsboro, NC 27534 or Audubon North Carolina, 807 E. Main Street, Suite 2-220 Durham, NC 27701.
