Richard Francis "Rickey" Goucher, age 62 of Woodbine NJ, died Sunday, July 8, 2018 in the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, PA surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Philadelphia, PA, he was the son of the late Robert Howard and Doris F. (nee McNutt) Goucher.

He was a graduate of Upper Darby High School and attended Kutztown University of Pennsylvania.

He was employed by Bally's Casino as a Dealer and he worked at the Acme Markets in Seaville, NJ as a Cashier for the 12 years prior to his illness.

Rickey loved his summers in Ocean City, NJ growing up. He spent his time walking and socializing on the beach with family and friends. He was passionate about music, movies, and Broadway Shows. He was also an avid Eagles Fan as long as they were going to win the Super Bowl. Other than those years, not so much.

Rickey is survived by his devoted sister, Mary Lynne Loughery of Ambler, PA; and brothers, Jerry Goucher and his wife Elaine of Blue Bell, PA and Scott Goucher and his wife Valerie of Ocean City, NJ. He is also survived by his nieces and nephews, Morgan Parker, Taylor Loughery, Justin, Madison and Liam Goucher, and Gerard, Claire, and Eamon Goucher and his brother in law, Bill Loughery, who helped care for Rickey this past year.

On behalf of Rickey, his family members thank all of those who provided encouragement and well wishes to him over the last year as he courageously battled cancer. He was amazingly strong and brave during his fight. We trust that he will spend eternity in a better place.

Rickey will be remembered at all masses, both Saturday and Sunday, this weekend in all 3 Catholic Churches in Ocean City, NJ.

His family would appreciate donations in his memory to the American Cancer Society American Cancer Society

So sad to be writing this. Rickey was just such a wonderful person. Growing up with him on Cornell Ave.was like having another Brother. I remember as a little boy and seeing for the first time a Lava Lamp Rickey had He plugged it I thought it was the coolest thing ever. Everytime I see one I think of Rickey He was so unique and so special. I know he is in heaven with His Mom and Dad. Everyone is healthy and it is just like the old days. Rest in Peace Rick. My love and prayers to all the Goucher's and Families

My prayers and deep condolences to all the Goucher's. I have a million happy memories of Rickey from growing up together on Cornell Ave, to summers in Ocean City, to Upper Dublin and beyond. What a brave and positive outlook he had during his struggles these past few years. May he rest in splendor with your mom and dad. xoxo
